The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
William Jones (Barge), 6 Jun 1901

Full Text

      The schr. WILLIAM JONES, which ran against the waterworks pier in the river and sunk last week is still at Tonawanda undergoing temporary repairs to her bottom. The barge is now lying in Calkins & Co.'s slip out of the heavy current and Diver Bovee is working hard to get the hole closed up so that the vessel can proceed with safety to Detroit. The owners at first intended to place the vessel in drydock at Buffalo, but the docks here are so busy that they decided to make temporary repairs at Tonawanda and then go direct to Detroit. Since the unloading of the cargo a portion of the hole in the bottom is above the water line.
