Lexington (Schooner), sunk, 19 Nov 1846

Full Text

The Schooner LEXINGTON, Capt. Peer, cleared from this Port on the 17th. ult., for Port Huron, freighted with 110 barrels whiskey, 53 tons of coal, and two boilers. Shippers Messrs Pease & Allen., and Winslow & Co., and A. Smith.
The wreck of the LEXINGTON has been discovered in the vicinity of the Islands, and it is supposed she foundered and went down while at anchor during the gale of the 19th., with all on board.
We learn by a letter from Mr. Judson, Deputy Collector at Vermillion to Collector Inglehart, that a small boat marked LEXINGTON and 100 barrels of whiskey have come ashore near there, no doubt belonging to the ill-fated schooner. -- Cleveland Herald, 30.
