In an article in the Morning Oregonian of Portland, Oregon on November 25, 1921 it states that: EUREKA, Cal., Nov. 23. The gasoline schooner Martha, with a crew of three, is being sought today after having been swept from her moorings outside the Humboldt bar during a gale last night. The Martha was awaiting repairs to her engine, which had become disabled recently, and it is believed that she is being tossed about in a helpless condition. Captain Elleson of the United States coast guard asked today that a coast guard cutter be sent from San Francisco to search for the Martha.
