The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Milwaukie (Ship), collision, 23 Oct 1840

Full Text

Another heavy wind has been blowing down the lake today, and brought with it a number of craft heavily laden. The Ship MILWAUKEE, Capt.Dickson, with 9,500 bushels wheat, and 600 barrels flour from Cleveland. In entering port, the MILWAUKEE was not so fortunate as those vessels which preceded her. After passing the pier, the space left for a passage was much confined, and as a consequence she ran foul of and injured a couple of vessels. The little schooner LUMBERMAN, of Erie, had every spar, and of course all her standing rigging swept off even with the deck. The Schooner AGNES BARTON also, had all her starboard bulwarks, shrouds and standing rigging carried away by the MILWAUKIE. The ship herself also lost some spars in the collision. - Buffalo Com. Adv.
