She lies in 20 or 22 feet of water, one mile south of Stoney Point and about three miles from the place where she went down. Her masts, bowsprit and rudder are out, and she is bottom side up, with about one foot of her bottom out of water. Portions of the wreck, including hee cabin and stove, have floated ashore. The Morey brought back the fore boom, line and two blocks from the wreck. [Oswego Times]
