|Name||MONTARO, Josep H.|
|Born||Cape Verde Islands|
|Died||28 February 1891|
In his book 'Antarctica', Otto Nordenskjöld tells how, in May 1902, he found the cemetery where a few pieces of wood thrust into the earth marked the graves. On one was the inscription:
JOSEP H. MONTARO. BRAVO C. D. VERA
A.B. SCH. S.W. HUNT.
DIED FEB 28th 1891 AGE 19 YEARS.
In his book 'Sea Elephant', L Harrison-Matthews repeats most of this with the addition of the fact that the schooner A W Hunt was a sealer.
Josep (or Joseph?) is most likely buried in grave B6, B8, or B10 with the other early sealers' graves, B7 and B9, which are still marked.
