Robert C. Pringle (Propeller), U127764, 1919
- Full Text
Several people have responded to my query of last week regarding the small steamer CHEQUAMEGON and her alleged trip to California in 1905. It is fairly probable that the steamer never made the trip. Though at least one source shows two CHEQUAMEGON's existing in 1903, no sources that I have found show a vessel of the name built in 1893, as the article states. Further, Bill McNeil sends information stating that Louis Cartier, the owner mentioned in the article, sold the CHEQUAMEGON to Traverse City parties in 1907. From there she became PERE MARQUETTE 7 in 1911 and ROBERT C. PRINGLE in 1918. She waterlogged and sank off Manitowoc in 1922. Thanks especially to Bill McNeil and Pat Labadie for the information.
