Helen Jernegan is pictured here as a much older woman. After returning to Edgartown in 1871, Helen never went to sea again. Helen was very proud of her family's accomplishments: Laura was cultured and married an officer in the U.S. Revenue Marine Service, Prescott was ordained a minister, and Marcus became a well-known professor and historian. Helen died on February 26, 1934.
