About Kingston

In 1847, the Gustavus was loaded with 50 tons of Kingston corn which it transported to Ireland to aid victims of the devastating potato famine. Its captain was besieged by starving Irish seeking passage back to America. By 1860, Kingston was home to 108 people who were born in Ireland.
