Rodney,

The U.S. merchant marine loss list on line is not reliable -- it originally came out in 1922 or 1923, amounts to which boat the Allies <i>thought</i> sank a specific vessel. It does not draw upon German information.

The vessels you asked about, with one possible exception, were not mined. The boats responsible:

Hilonian May 16 1917: UC 35
John D. Archbold June 16 1917: UC 48
Motano July 31 1917: UC 47
Owasco Dec 10 1917: U 64
Armenia Feb 9 1918: UB 30 (salvaged)
A.A.Raven Mar 14 1918: UB 55
John G. McCullough May 18 1918: UB 74
Lake Portage Aug 3 1918: UB 88
Berwind Aug 3 1918: UB 88
Lake Owens Sept 3 1918: UB 125
Caloria Oct 16 1918: ???, unattributed. Possibly mined.Damaged only

Best wishes,
Michael
