The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Margaret Olwill (Propeller), U91953, aground, 5 Sep 1894

Full Text

Ashalnd, Sept. 5 - The steamer reported on Sand Island proved to be the MARGARET OLWELL. By taking about 2/3 of her deck load of lumber on lighters, the OLWELL was released and is now in Bayfield. As the steamer was on a flat rock bottom, it is not believed that the damage will be heavy.
