The original Seamen's
Cemetery was adjacent to its current location and
much larger than the small plot that remains, attesting
to the rigors of whaling and primitive medical services
available on shipboard. Old records show that many
of the deaths occurred among very young men, some
of them sailors whose boats were swamped when they
tried to make it ashore through the surf at Lahaina.
