J. W. Sargent (Schooner), U12773, 6 Nov 1874
- Full Text
Capt. Charles Heams, who was formerly the owner of the schr. J.W. SARGENT, which was carried off by the ice during the winter of 1873 while anchored among the islands at the head of Lake Erie, discovered the locality of the lost craft while in a recent voyage upon Lake Erie, and a view of her sufficient to distinctly read her name on her quarter boards. She lies about 5 miles below Long Pt. Cut in about 16 ft. of water. She rests with her stern off the bottom and with some of her outfit dangling from the wreck. After obtaining the first view of the wreck he stood about with his vessel and again discovered sufficient evidence as to satisfy him it was none other than the vessel in question. It is not improbable that an effort will be made to regain possession of the long lost craft.
