The E. STARR JONES was built in 1904 by Dunn & Elliot Co. in Thomaston Me. USA for their own account.
She had four masts and two decks, schooner rigged.
Tonnage 916 gross, 788 net, dim. 185.8 x 38.1 x 19.2ft.
She had an elliptic stern and a billethead.

Built for a consortium, the builder owned 19/64 shares, Richard E. Dunn and Richard O. Elliott two partners in the company each 4/64 shares. The senior partner Capt. Arthur J. Elliott, a brother of R.O. Elliot but not associated with the company owned 8/64 shares. Other family members mostly 1/64 share under which Erastus Jones from Brooklyn 1/64 share, the ship could be named after him?

First she sailed under command of Capt. A. Elliott until 1908 then he was relieved by Capt. H.L.Hylenger of Boston, Mass.
