and fell victim to carbon monoxide fumes, whether from the engine or a cabin heater is not clear. Cleve was the brother of Frank Jackson, the island’s pharmacist and the founder of Jackson’s Pharmacy, which once stood on the Main Road beside the old bank, now a bookstore. The Program and the List both date this incident in 1946, but Harrison’s Journal places it, convincingly, on February 18, 1947. Kenneth “Mac”Malkin (1948) was a Canadian who during WWII became friends with Roy Harrison of Tilghman’s Island. Malkin came to the Chesapeake and took a job r unning an oyster buy-boat for the Tilghman Packing Company. In the winter of 1947-48, he was sent out with a bag of money to buy oysters from the watermen in the Broad Creek area. As he prepared to head back, “Snap” Jones and other watermen in Neavitt begged him not to go, saying he had a very full load and a wind was rising out in the Choptank. Malkin decided he could make it and set out for home. As he came out of Broad Creek at

sundown, off Nelson’s Island, the wind suddenly slammed into him; seas came over the side, and the boat swamped. When news reached Tilghman, the Company immediately sent boats to search. They found the buy-boat sitting upright on the bottom, with her mast sticking up above water. Mac was found lashed to the mast with his belt. Charles Faulkner (1949) was “found in boat.” He was the son of Charles Faulkner, the storekeeper in Bar Neck. The cause of his death is not recalled. Capt. Stanley Larrimore and he were cousins, their mothers being sisters, and he recalls that Charles was found by Buck Murphy ~ who also was found dead in his boat later the same year.
