The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Summit (Schooner), sunk, 4 Jun 1867

Full Text

The schr. SUMMIT, laden with iron ore is reported sunk at Marquette, Lake Superior. It would appear that, after taking on her cargo, she attempted to leave the harbor, and while doing so struck on some boulders, and immediately sunk. Should the weather be in her favor, she will probably be got off, though the chance, to say the least, are against her. On the receipt of the dispatch, there being no wrecking steamer at hand, a river tug, with steam pumps, was sent to her assistance. Leaving here on Sunday afternoon.
