      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall

      . . . . .

      An unsuccessful attempt was made last week by the tug T.F. PARK to raise the tug GOOGENOW which was sunk some weeks since in the lake just north of Lexington. The sunken craft lies in about 80 ft. of water and the PARK will make another attempt to raise her, having left Monday night for Lexington with additional wrecking apparatus aboard.

      The GOODNOW raised by the T.F. PARK off Lexington arrived in the river last week in tow of the latter tug, and was taken into Sarnia Bay where she again sank, and for several days lay with only her stern out of water. She was pumped out on Tuesday however and proceeded to Detroit that night.
