The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Storm King (Schooner), aground, 1 Jul 1860

Full Text

The schr. STORM KING, recently reported ashore on Grand Island, Lake Superior, arrived here yesterday morning in tow of the tug J.C. IVES. Though considerably damaged by having pounded on the rocks, she has been kept free by her own pumps. P portion of her cargo, consisting of iron ore, was thrown overboard in order to lighten her off. A dispatch was received from her owner shortly after her arrival, to place her at once in drydock, and she has accordingly been taken into Clark's dock for repairs. The vessel, we learn, was insured, but the cargo not.
