Harvest Queen (Schooner), sunk, 5 Feb 1876

Full Text

The schr. HARVEST QUEEN, freighted with a cargo of grindstones, went into winter quarters just below the foot of Rivard St., and Tuesday night she sprung a leak, filled and sank in about 16 ft. of water. The cabin roof is just above the surface of the water, and will probably be removed immediately to save it from damage from floating ice. It is not likely that the vessel will be raised before spring.
