The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), May 28, 1867

Full Text

The steamer "Watertown" paid another visit on Sunday last to the wreck of the "Wisconsin" on Grenadier Island, and brought away two more bodies, making seventeen in all that have been recovered. One was that of a woman, the other of a son of Mr. Creed, who lost four of his family through the disaster. They were landed at Cape Vincent to be interred with the remains of the other unfortunates. A party is still searching for the bodies not yet recovered, among which are those of the first and second engineers and the first mate. The "Watertown" also brought from the wreck a quantity of iron and machinery found on board the "Wisconsin."
