The SS Concho was built in 1891 for the Mallory Line and ran freight and passengers from New York to Galveston via Key West. During the Spanish American War, she was chartered to carry soldiers to Cuba. The Concho had left Galveston the day before the infamous hurricane of 1900 and survived the wind and ocean swells. She was eventually sold to German interest and scrapped in 1928.
