Ringgold (Schooner), capsized, 4 Oct 1867

Full Text

The schooner yesterday reported capsized near Chicago proves to be the RINGGOLD, until quite recently owned by Capt. Farqubar, and employed as a wrecker. She was bought of Thomas Johnson, one of her owners, commanded her, and had a crew of 4 or 5 men, all of whom found watery graves. She was on her way to Sheboygan when the accident occurred. The schr. CALCUTTA took the ill-fated vessel in tow and brought her as far as the entrance to Chicago Habor, where she was run upon the bar south of the pier. She will be righted at once and brought into port. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
