Note: Stonewall Jackson was a three-masted bark that sailed from Salem to China from the late 1870s onwards. The charts range in date due to the fact that sea captains often used the same charts for several years of service. During this period, Stonewall Jackson was sailed by Captain Swain of Quincy, Massachusetts.
