The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Meridian (Schooner), aground, 1 Dec 1854

Full Text

AGROUND.---The schooner MERIDIAN, from Chicago, loaded with corn for Buffalo,
anchored in the river opposite the city night before last, but during the night the ice came down the river in large quantities, pressing against the vessel with such force as to cause her to drag her anchor down stream about three miles, when she went hard aground. She lies near the smelting works. She will probably be got off without damage.

      . . . . .

We are informed that the report, that the schooner MERIDIAN was ashore in Detroit River, is untrue.
