F. A. Kilburn (#200640) (1904-1918), a 201-foot wood-hulled commercial passenger steamer built in Fairhaven, California in 1904. She had two decks, two masts, and carried 23 crew. Prior to 1918, she was operated by the North Pacific Steamship Company on a California to Portland route. According to Santa Cruz Island Company records, on April 5, 1916 she delivered vegetable seeds (onion, celery, carrot, cabbage, cauliflower and eggplant) to the island, along with miscellaneous items such as mower parts, nails, horse rasps and rubber washers. She was sold to the Mexican Fruit and Steamship Company, and shortly thereafter on June 14, 1918 she was wrecked in Florida.
