      Marine Disasters 1867, Lake Erie
      Toledo Blade, December 21, 1867

      . . . . .

The Canadian schr. BAY QUEEN left this port Monday morning, and had proceeded a short distance out in the Bay, when the wind died away and the current drawing her near the Dummy Light she left go her best anchor and came to. During the heavy gale and snow storm the same night, she dragged and parted her chain, when her second anchor was dropped and met the fate of the first, upon which she drifted down the river, and floating in, grounded near the Frontier Mill, at Black Rock Ferry. She will be easily got off.
