Deseronto (Propeller), 23 Apr 1881
- Full Text
The steamer DESORONTO, (sic) which has had fifteen feet added to her length and one foot to the depth of her hold, started on her trial trip on Saturday afternoon, when a very high wind was blowing. She went a short distance into the lake and turned round to return to Deseronto, but she was rolling greatly, and people on the shore could see the red paint on her bottom. She finally turned completely on her side and remained so, and as the engine was not stopped she ran for about half a mile and struck a shoal, where she righted and sank, the top of her smokestack being just visible over the water. The seven persons on board reached shore in safety.
