The younger child is Victoria. Capt. Shorey was a well-known African American whaler captain. He was master of the GAY HEAD, ANDREW HICKS, and JOHN & WINTHROP. In command of sailing vessels from 1887 to 1909, Capt. Shorey often took his family with him on whaling voyages. Of the baby, Victoria, he mother said, "Victoria is a remarkable sailor. She knows all the ropes, and has perfect command of her father."
