The fish tug GRACE, was built in Buffalo in 1882 and in 1883 was bought by Fred Helwig Sr., William Miesner and Ted Walters of Dunkirk. It became part of the local fishing fleet. Old Timers often told of the day the GRACE came in with 100 large sturgeon. In unloading the catch, one of the sturgeon got away, falling back into the water, however the remaining 99 fish weighed 9,900 pounds. - L.V.
