William Morris, Boatman of the Coastguard stationed at Cork c. 1830
Robin Lane
Prior to this he was a captain in the Preventive Water Guard; he drowned while on duty in 1836. He and his wife Jemima are buried in the cemetery attached to St. Michael's (Protestant) Chapel in Blackrock, Cork, Ireland. Note: William and Jemima Morris came to Blackrock, Cork from places and stations situated along Irelandís eastern shoreline in a timeframe beginning in 1809 when the Preventive Water Guard began operations in England, ending in Blackrock when he died.

I'm looking for details of how he drowned.

Thanks.
