Loss Of The Schooner Geo. G. Smalley - Three Lives Lost

The Milwaukie News says:- Through the kindness of Capt. Winegar, of the steamer Franklin Moore, the Green Bay Advocate learns the following particulars of the loss of the G.G. Smalley, with three of her passengers. She left ( St. ? ) Martin's for Washington harbor on the 6th inst. with eight persons on board; when about two hours out she filled with water and capsized, placing the persons on board in an awful situation. Soon a little girl, unable to cling longer to the boat, was drowned. From three o'clock P.M. on Monday, until 5 A.M. on Tuesday, the boat drifted about in the bay, during which time two more persons, Mr. N. Curtis and his wife, parents of the little girl previously lost, were drowned. The wreck then struck on the Northern Beach of Washington Island, where the almost exhausted survivors were extricated from their awful situation. [Buffalo Republic, Monday evening]
