The Bark GEORGE SHERMAN and Scow HERYZNIA were driven ashore at Collamer, 8 miles below Cleveland. (part)
June 19, 1866
. . . . .
There were reports that there were two or three other vessels ashore between this port and Morse's Point, fifteen miles below, but we could learn nothing certain, and think that the reports were false. We are prepared, however, to learn of more and fearful disasters along the whole north shore of the lake, as the force of the gale was tremendous.
We learn that the bark GEORGE SHERMAN owned by K. Sherman, Esq., of this city, and the scow HERZYNIA, are both beached off Collamer eight miles east of this port, but we learn no particulars further than that no lives were lost. ---- Cleveland Herald, June 18.
