Minnesota (Schooner), 19 Nov 1873


Description
Full Text

The recent storm on Lake Michigan has swept out of exsistance a few old hulks which long since had served well their time, and had they been serving anywhere except Lake Michigan they would have been superannuated long before this. Among those recently wrecked was the old schr. HAMILTON, formerly of Oswego, where she was built in 1847, making her 26 years old. She composed one of the Red Bird line, and will be remembered by the peculiar rig that class of vessels had in those times. Her obituary has been written up on more than one occasion. The other craft alluded to was the MINNESOTA, built also at Oswego, of the same age as the last named.
