The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Honora Carr (Schooner), U95851, 1886

Full Text

The little wooden schooner HONORA CARR left Buffalo Friday night with 200 tons of coal for John W. Thomson of this city. About midnight she began leaking. This increased and early Saturday morning she started back for Buffalo. At noon when about 2 miles off Pt. Abino and 14 miles from Buffalo, she foundered in 60 feet of water. One man was drowned, the rest of the crew was rescued by the tug INES. The CARR was formerly the Canadian schooner MAPLE LEAF which was driven ashore in the fall of 1883. In the summer of 1884 the wreck was purchased by Michael Carr, who released her and the next season fitted her out.
