The 'M. Wolters' referred to in this statement was Manuel Wolter - no 's' on the name - the oldest son of Captain Charles Wolter who was born March 6, 1792 at Fabon, Province of Pomorn, Germany. Captain Wolter died September 26, 1856 at Monterey, California. Historical records relate wonderful tales of his years on the high seas. He became a Mexican citizen in 1833.

LENORA 1836-1838

  • JULIA 1844-1845
  • EL PLACER 1848
For two years, Captain Wolter sailed from Lima, Peru to London, 1841-1843. The receipt for 600 hard dollars is testimony.
Sailing in and out of the harbor of Monterey and spending some time there, he met and married Josefa Antonia Estrada-Gomez, widow of Rafael Gomez, in 1843, and Manuel Wolter was the oldest son of this marriage.
Manuel Wolter, born at Monterey 1847, was a fourth generation Californian, a direct descendant of Dario Jose Arguello and Ignacia Moraga.
Their daughter Ysabel Arguello married Jose Mariano Estrada.
Their daughter Josefa Antonia Estrada married Rafael Gomez, and, after his death, married Captain Charles Wolter.
Their oldest son, Manuel Wolter, married Lucy Catherine Little, daughter of Walter Little, April 5, 1873 at Monterey, California.
Their youngest son, Harry Meiggs Wolter (named for Harry Meiggs of San Francisco) was a member of the old Highlander Baseball Team of New York City, later became the New York Yankees. He lives at Stanford and is the donor of this doorlock to the Maritime Museum, San Francisco, California.

  • Less than a month out of New York, hull down with cargo for California, the clipper ship NEPTUNE'S CAR encountered multiple misfortune. Captain Joshua Patten had to depose his chief mate for insubordination. Then soon after, he and the two remaining officers fell helplessly ill of malaria.
  • One person remained able to command: Mary Patten, who as a bride had learned celestial navigation from her husband on her only previous voyage. She assembled the crew and announced her decision. They'd sail on. For 55 hard driving days she captained the clipper as it sped down the Atlantic, swept around the Horn, and skimmed up the Pacific. On November 13, 1856, the ship safely entered the Golden Gate. The cargo she delivered would be worth $10,000,000 today.
