SamuelB Davis

Samuel B Davis was born in 1843. He was captain of the ARLINGTON. One night in  December 1891 he dreamed that there was a ship in trouble, but he didn't just dream that there was trouble, he also dreamed the exact place it was: Lat. 52, 30`N. Long. 21, 20`W. So the next day he told his crew to turn the ship around to find it, and they found it sinking. They saved the crew with a new life boat they were carrying. When they returned to land Captain Samuel B. Davis was awarded a gold watch.
