The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Mary Stockton (Schooner), U50515, water-logged, 1 Sep 1887

Full Text

Sand Beach.---The propeller OSWEGATCHIE, bound down, came in with her tow sadly demoralized; the barges MARY STOCKTON and WYOMING were waterlogged. The WYOMING was pumped out by the life-saving crew, and went on with the tow, but the STOCKTON's decks are badly broken up and are about two feet under water. She now lies at the pier waiting to be towed up the river.
