Three Brothers (Schooner), U24987, struck reef, 1 Oct 1887
- Full Text
Kelley's Island.---The schooner THREE BROTHERS, coming down the lake about noon, struck a reef between Starve island and the north end of this Island (Kelley's), which is not on the chart. She came to anchor in the passage and displayed a signal of distress which was promptly answered by the Marblehead life-saving crew, who went to her assistance. They found the vessel leaking badly. The captain thinks the crew can keep her afloat until she can be towed into some port where she can be unloaded. The life-savers offered to stay aboard and help, but the captain wanted to send some messages very much, so the life crew, came ashore here, where they will remain until the storm abated.
