      The Circassian's Last Days
      The records of the United States Life Saving Service offer a detailed account of the shipwreck

      ""The ship was immediately discovered by the patrol of Station No. 10 (Capt. Baldwin Cook, keeper), and the crew of the station promptly assembled. To have launched the boat in the heavy seas, which in that vicinity roll in numerous combing breaker from the outer bar to the beach, would have been fool-hardy."

      "Darkness came on without any abatement of the tempest, and the ship continued to labor heavily. It was not, however, till seven o'clock that she made any signal of distress. Notwithstanding the general confidence in her stoutness, alarm for her safety began soon to prevail. The crews of the next stations, Nos. 9 and 11, were at once sent for, and Capt. Baldwin Cook and his men of station No. 10. hastened to prepare for the forlorn attempt at rescue.

      Station Mecox, New York
      Coast Guard Station #70
      Keepers: The first known keeper was John W. Hedges, who was appointed in 1853 and remained for an unknown period of time. Next came Samuel J. Hildreth who seems to have served only during an unknown period in 1872. Then followed Baldwin Cook (age 39, he served from February 1, 1873 through March 3, 1886), John N. Hedges (March 27, 1886 until March 25, 1915 when he was retired because he was more than 64 years old), and Edward Arnold (acting until his appointment October 15, 1915 until his relief by retirement because of incapacity December 15, 1921).
