Schooner ZEPHYR, cargo lumber, ashore near Lakeport, Lake Huron.
      Buffalo Commercial Advertiser
      January 26, 1863 (Casualty List, 1862)

      . . . . .

      REPORTED ASHORE. - The schooner ZEPHYR, at present owned at Port Huron, is reported by the steamer FORESTER ashore at Lake Huron below Lexington. She is loaded with lumber which was taken out in that locality, and it is presumed she went ashore during a fog. She had her colors flying at half-mast as the FORESTER passed, awaiting the arrival of a tug. The weather was in her favor, and it is probable she will
be got off with slight injury. - Detroit Free Press

getting ashore on Lake Huron, have been repaired at McDonald's shipyard, and the
vessel was in readiness to leave for Buffalo last night. - Detroit Free Press.
