Graham Brothers (Schooner), U85375, aground, 1 Sep 1883

Full Text

The Schooner GRAHAM BROTHERS is out high and dry on the beach at Garrett's Bay, in Green Bay, just south of Death's Door. She was out in the blow of Friday night, and dropped anchor in five fathoms of water. A heavy squall struck her, and she was rapidly driven ashore. It will take some considerable work to get her afloat again. The tug GREGORY went to the stranded vessel to attempt her release. The GRAHAM BROTHERS is loaded with wood for James Hanson of Ephraim, Ind.,and is insured against total loss only. She is a small schooner of eighty-two tons burden, and was built at Green Bay in 1874. Her owner is W.W. Cargill, who values her at about $3,500. -- Sturgeon Bay Report.
