The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Vermont (Schooner), dismasted, 1 Sep 1845

Full Text

The most desolate looking object afloat in our harbor for a long time, is visible today in the schr. VERMONT, Capt. Lennox. There is nothing left of her but her hull and cargo. It seems that she took on 102 casks of ashes and 12,000 staves at Detroit, on Saturday last, consigned to B. Isaac of Oswego, and that on Tuesday evening about 8:00, a sudden and tremendous gust struck her, when about 5 miles below Long Point, sweeping both masts, every inch of canvass, together with the rigging, clean by the board. A part of the deck load of staves, some 2,000 were lost overboard, and the vessel left a complete wreck in the lake. On Wednesday she was fallen in with the stm. H. STRONG, and was take into Dunkirk, from which place she was towed to this port by the INDIAN QUEEN, to await further orders from the owners and consignee. -- Commercial
