"Another eerie coincidence: One scene in this fictional book visits a whaling ship lost at sea, taking with it all but 4 crewmen. Out of food, the men drew lots to see who would be eaten, the unfortunate decision landing on a young cabin boy named Richard Parker (and here it gets really weird)....46 years later there was an actual disaster at sea involving the Mignonette wherein the men drew lots and decided to eat their cabin boy...a boy named Richard Parker."

The Mary Celeste was in seaworthy condition and still under sail heading toward the Strait of Gibraltar. She had been at sea for a month and had over six months' worth of food and water on board. Her cargo was virtually untouched and the personal belongings of passengers and crew were still in place, including valuables. The crew was never seen or heard from again.
