Ralph Granger (Schooner), aground, 23 Nov 1845

Full Text

The schooner RALPH GRANGER went ashore on the north side of the peninsula, on last Wednesday night. She has not been got off yet, and we have just learned that she is lying quite easy, and has not, up to this time (Friday 12:00 A.M.) made any water. Her cargo is all on board safe, with the exception of a few barrels of salt, which was thrown overboard when she struck. She had a full freight of merchandise, &c., for Grand River, Ohio. - Erie Observer 19th.

      The Erie Gazette states a small vessel, name not learned dragged her anchor in the outer road about 7:00 Sunday morning (11/23), and having lost her sails, she was abandoned by her crew, who taking to the yawl boat, fortunately reached the shore about 4 miles below Erie.
