STOCKTON, MARY Bark, water logged in Lake Erie.
      Marine Disasters 1867, Lake Erie
      Toledo Blade December 21, 1867

      About 5:00 yesterday morning the barge MARY STOCKTON sunk off the mouth of the river near the West Pier. She was loaded with lumber from Saginaw, for S.H. Sheldon of this city. She encountered a heavy sea on Lake Huron, which started her seams and caused her to leak, but she was kept afloat until reaching the point stated above. - Clev. Herald, 30th.

      On Thursday (8/29), as the bark MARY STOCKTON was entering the harbor, deeply laden with lumber, she sank near the mouth of the river. Yesterday about 100,000 ft. of lumber were taken from her, which lightened her to such an extent that she was moved into the river a short distance farther. - Cleve. Leader, 31st.
