The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Watertown Times (Watertown, NY), Nov. 29, 1860

Full Text

The storm of Saturday and Sunday was a most terrible one on the Lakes, and we hear of disasters in all quarters. The Revolving Light, of Henderson, loaded with wheat, and the Minnehaha, of Detroit, bound for Ogdensburgh, loaded with corn, went ashore at Cape Vincent, with others, names unknown.

Seven vessels are reported between Kingston and Sackets Harbor. The Cascade, loaded with wheat, was driven in the port last named, in a disabled condition. The Jenny P. Mack, loaded with coal, is ashore ten miles above Port Colborne. The Forest is frozen in the Bay of Quinte.

A telegraph from Buffalo gives account of from 15 to 20 vessels ashore and more or less disabled and damaged.
