Lost in Storm off Montauk Point
The Freighter SS Suffolk was lost with all hands when she foundered and sank in a Northeaster while en route from Norfolk, Virginia to Boston. The last report from the ship stated that she was foundering in a heavy gale. Twenty days later, USS Reeve (DE-156) picked-up a raft with the bodies of a crewman and a Navy gunner. It was determined that the men had died of exposure just two days earlier.
