    I am reading the The Bounty now but have not yet reached the section on the
    mutineers journey to Pitcairn.  I'll look forward to the section on their
    discovery to learn what I can.

    Subject: Mutineers on Pitcairn
    I've read quite a few books on this matter in the last 18 months.In most of
    them Folger's name is mentioned along with 2 others.The last book on this
    matter I read was title "The Bounty".I wrote the list about it some time in
    April or May '04 I believe.It was a very well researched book.By far the
    most informative on certain aspects of this adventure than most others.It
    even recreated the tracklines of Bounty's last search for a resting place.It
    is in the archives.
    Folger's was either the 1st or 2nd whaler to visit Pitcairn after the Bounty
    rested there.It was stated the 1st whaleing vessel only sent a party ashore
    to look for provisions.They noted certain structures on the island that
    didn't quite fit but left shortly after due to a storm or something.It was
    actually the 2nd whaler to visit Pitcairn that investigated the
    sightings.That may be Folger's vessel.I really can't remember precisely what
    order the ships got to Pitcairn.
    Check theaArchives from this year under the title "The Bounty".
    Hope this helps you in your search.
