The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), July 28, 1857

Full Text

The propeller J. W. Brooks, which went down in a gale on Lake Ontario last Fall, with all on board, has been partially raised by a company of divers, and was towed down to Garden Island, opposite Kingston, in a submerged state, on Sunday morning, where she now lies in 25 feet of water. The dives succeeded in raising a few barrels of flour from the hull, which were in a good state of preservation; but being found impossible with the imperfect appliances at hand to bring the vessel to the surface, she was taken to the island, where the necessary machinery will be employed in floating her.
