SARAH FRANCIS Schooner, ashore at Presqu'Isle, Lake Ontario. Property loss $300.
      Buffalo Democracy
      Feb. 28, 1855 (casualty list)


      We learn from the Brighton Sentinel that on Monday last, five vessels went ashore in the gale, to the east, and in sight of Presque Isle Harbor. The EDITH of Hamilton, laden with 4,000 bushels of wheat, sunk, her deck two feet under water. The FOREST QUEEN, of Oakville, from Lake Erie, laden with staves, her rudder and stern post gone. The WILLIAM AND JOHN, laden with plaster, aground. The PARAGON, of Toronto, aground, with two feet water in her hold. The SARAH FRANCES, of St. Catharines, rudder and foremast gone. There is little doubt others met with the same fate farther east.
