Schooner ILLINOIS, lumber, deserted by her crew and waterlogged on Lake Michigan.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall

      . . . . .

A DESERTED VESSEL PICKED UP--CREW MISSING. - Yesterday afternoon the scow ANNA TOMINE fell in with the schooner ILLINOIS, in a waterlogged condition and abandoned by her crew about thirty miles off this port. The TOMINE took the ILLINOIS in tow and arrived in our bay with her about 12 o'clock last night. This morning the tug AMERICAN EAGLE brought her into the harbor. The ILLINOIS had a cargo of railroad ties. Nothing is known concerning the crew, but the supposition is that they left the vessel in the yawl, which is gone, having apparently been lowered away. Their fate is a mystery. - Milwaukee Wisconsin
