Herman Runge List
The Elgin was wrecked, seized for salvage charges, and sold American in 1886. The buyer was J.S. Dunham of Chicago, who renamed her Oakland and immediately sold her. However, she was registered as Elgin (US135898), and enrolled at Chicago under that name in 1886, 1892, 1892, and 1904. In other words, she never sailed as Oakland
