Full Text

The scow schooner NELLIE & ANNIE, owned and sailed by Capt. Hinckley of South Haven, Mich., is believed to have been lost as wreckage has been found by the Lif Saving crew three miles north of the piers - Chicago Aug. 8.

      "There was found on the beach, about three miles north of the piers, this morning, by the life-saving crew of this station a board with the name NELLIE and ANNIE painted on it, and attached to what was evidently a piece of the wreck of a small vessel, also a lot of cull shingles, which no doubt came from the same craft. There was a vessel by that name that belonged to South Haven, Mich., but I have not heard that she was missing. The body of a young man that was found ten miles south a few days ago, and buried on the beach without identification, may have come from the same wreck." -- Chicago Inter-Ocean. --- Grand Haven Report
