The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), Thurs., March 18, 1875

Full Text


Tuesday evening Mr. Hiram Klock, of this city, received a telegram announcing that his father in law, Asa Wilcox, of Three Mile Bay, Jefferson County, was injured that afternoon and shortly after died. For many years Asa Wilcox was one of the principal ship builders on Lake Ontario, and many of the crafts he built are still afloat and seaworthy.

By industry and honesty he attained wealth, and although he had money enough, he still pursued his trade of ship builder. The particulars as to the cause of his death are not at hand, but we should judge that he was injured in some way while repairing a schooner at his ship yard.
