PERRY, THEO. Schooner, damaged by collision with Propeller YOUNG AMERICA, in Welland Canal.
Marine Disasters on the Western
Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall
. . . . .
A collision occurred on the Welland Canal at 5 A.M. of the 1st, between the prop. YOUNG AMERICAN and the schr. THEODORE PERRY. The schooner's jibboom struck the propeller amidships, going through the cabin and riddling 2 or 3 state rooms in which passengers were asleep. One of the rooms was occupied by a Mrs. George Hugunin, of Oswego, with 2 children, who had the sheets pulled from her bed and torn to shreds. Immediately after the shock one of the children clambered off the bed on to the boom, and made its escape out of the room.
