p.1 Where Did She Sink - The schr. Radiant, Capt. John Cary, of Clayton, left Toledo on Nov. 19th, 1857, loaded for Oswego, and was overtaken by a storm on Lake Erie, and foundered with all hands. The storm commenced on Nov. 19th, and lasted till the 21st, and was the worst of the season. No one knows what day or night the Radiant was lost, as not a man was left to tell the tale. The officers were: Capt. John Cary; mate, George St. Thomas; cook, Mrs. George St. Thomas. The remainder of the crew were from Oswego. It is supposed that the vessel was covered with ice and sunk. Not a piece of the wreck was ever recognized.
