About MARIE Project

On behalf of the families, I  am working to piece together, as Paul Harvey would say, "The rest of the story."  I am Teresa Newton-Terres (TNT), daughter of Diego S. Terres, Jr., one of the men lost on the "Marie".  I'm honored and humbled to be part of this effort to connect the families, friends, and colleagues of the men lost on the vessel "Marie" and to commemorate their loss.   I consider the opportunity to compile the associated stories and facts, record oral histories, dispel misinformation, all in an attempt to shed new light on the "Marie" a privilege. 

This initiative is important because itís time to unravel the facts from the myths, the surviving family and friends need to record their story before they are lost.  Hopefully everyone will rejoice in the transcendent lessons gained with today's big-picture perspective.

The initial steps of the MARIE Project include locating as much information as possible as well as locate all those who had a piece of the story...  Many folks have already added their threads of information to the MARIE story tapestry.  What can you add?  Eventually, there will be a full reporting.  Thank you to those who have added a thread to the story of the "Marie".

MARIE Compass

What tool guides your heart, mind, and actions?  Some will look to something like the North Star, Pole Star; or, if you are a Chumas Indian you may look to Polaris.  I know this as the Holy Spirit guidance:

"We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

 "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever." Matt 6:9-13


Please, help me locate the family of Timothy Lovette because all other families are connected.





Rejoice because we can.
