from https://www.morninglightclipper.com/morning-light.html "Morning Light clipper was built on the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, by Messers Tobey & Littlefield in 1853. It was 1713 tons. The ship initially sailed out of Boston, but was used for various commercial voyages until it was sold in 1863 to James Baines & Co. for their Black Ball Line. The ship's name was changed to Queen of the South so that it would not be confused with the Canadian-built Saint John Morning Light that is the subject of this website."

She ran aground and was wrecked in 1868 https://www.wrecksite.eu/wreck.aspx?133194
