ISABELLA Schooner, ashore at Long Point, Lake Erie; total loss.
      Marine Disasters 1867, Lake Erie
      Toledo Blade December 21, 1867

      . . . . .

The schooner ISABELLA which we also reported beached at Long Point, was reached by the steam tug HARRISON on Friday night, with a steam pump on board. The pump was rigged on the schooner, which was taken in tow by the HARRISON, but in consequence of the heavy seas running at the time, the pumps could not be worked, and the schooner sunk with the pumps and all material on board, in deep water, about 10 miles off Mohawk Island. The crew had barely enough time to take to the boat and reach the tug before the ISABELLA went down.
