A. Holly

 

(Sch)

 

A. Holly was one of the schooners purchased at Baltimore by the Navy to be laden with stone and sailed to the vicinity of Cape Hatteras and sunk as an obstruction to block one of the channels or inlets leading to the North Carolina sounds. Unfortunately, no record has been found establishing whether or not she was ever used for this purpose and, if not, giving any clue as to her ultimate fate.
