  • Maid of Orleans, two -masted schooner of 180 tons and 240 M capacity, was built at San Francisco in 1882 by Dickie Bros. for J. J.McKinnon. She operated for vears in the South Seas trades. From 1906 to 1921 she was operated as a codfisher out of Seattle, her last owners in this business being the Pacific Coast Codfish Company, headed by Capt. J. E. Shields. Early in 1924 the company sold her to the late Capt. Carl Klingenberg of Herschel Island and Victoria Land, Arctic Ocean, who sent her to the King & Winge yard, Seattle, where he had her equipped with an auxiliary engine and also had her hull sheathed with iron bark as a protection against the Arctic ice floes. Capt. Klingenberg changed her name to Old Maid No. 2 and she sailed from Seattle for the Arctic in August, 1924. In June, 1928, Capt. Klingenberg sold her to C. H. French of Winnipeg, Canada and it is presumed he sold her to C.H. French of Winnipeg, Canada and it is presumed he sold her to the ancient Hudson's Bay Company, for she operated in the Arctics.
