KEARSAGE Schooner, a man overboard and drowned in Lake Erie.
      Marine Disasters on the Western
      Lakes during 1869, Capt. J.W. Hall


      The latest news we have from Long Pt. is that about 30 vessels were lying there for shelter. Among them were the SAN JACINTO, WARNER, YANKEE and CRAWFORD. Two vessels had signals of distress flying, but a large tug was in the vicinity and probably rendered assistance.
      The mate of the schr. KEARSARGE was lost off Long Pt., on Saturday, by a heavy seas sweeping him overboard.
