A whaler from Nantucket, Captain Edmund Gardner, fell overboard into "the mouth of a sperm whale" and survived to write about the incident. Edmund suffered some injuries, such as a whale tooth "entering his skull."
Edmund is a descendant of Thomas and Margaret, through both John and Richard. John M. Bullard wrote the story of his life (included is genealogical material).
