SEA GULL Schooner, ashore at Fairport.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      January 26, 1863. (Casualty List, 1862)

      . . . . .

      The scow HIGHLAND CHIEF came up from Fairport last night (10th.) with the small boat and other 'traps' belonging to the schooner WILLIAM ROSS, a Canadian three master, which went ashore there some time ago.
      The Captain of the HIGHLAND CHIEF reports the schooner SEA GULL, ashore at Fairport. She went on Thursday morning early, about 20 rods off the east pier, and when the captain left she was lying head on and her stern pounding badly. The anchor was raised and she swung around. With a favorable wind she can be easily gotten off. She probably mistook Fairport Light for Cleveland harbor, as this is sometimes done. - Cleveland Herald
