Hello everyone, I am posting here about my Uncle who in the late 80's was looking for a shipwreck known as the SS Independence. He was part of a team who basically went down to Mexico disguised as a fishing crew and were trying to get to the wreck, but they had problems with the boat and it never happened. The boat was on it's way from the Panama Canal to San Francisco, and was caught in a storm in 1853, and sunk off of Baja California, at the southern point of Islas Margaritas. I believe over 150 people died. He told me that they found skeletons of people who were buried on the island and some gold coins. Apparently one of the other people on the team went to the Library of Congress and found out there was gold on the ship, but I can't find any evidence about it online. Wondering if anyone else has any information on this.
