The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Nevada (Schooner), aground, 18 Oct 1886

Full Text

The schr. NEVADA, bound up with coal, was stripped of canvas when about 5 miles below Ashtabula harbor in Thursday night's gale and was driven ashore at 1:30 Friday morning. The crew were rescued with great difficulty. Persons who at first attempted to reach the disabled boat in skiffs were capsized, but were picked up by the tugs. The Capt. of the schr. BENSON sent out a boat which finally succeeded in bringing off the NEVADA's crew. This event will be the cause of great effort to secure for Ashtabula Harbor a lifesaving crew as the necessity of it has many times been urged.
