AGATE Schooner, stranded near Presqu'Isle, Lake Huron. Property loss $1,000
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      Jan. 28, 1858 (1857 Casualty List)

The D. R. MARTIN is on a reef of rocks four miles above Presque Isle. This is the vessel mentioned last week as the JOHN MARTIN, ashore at the same place. She was loaded with coal, and bound up from Cleveland, where she belongs. If assistance could be got to her, she probably could be got off, and her cargo saved; but as she now lies, the first storm will force her on the rocks and break her up. The little AGATE will, without doubt, be a total loss, with a cargo of wheat and flour.
