The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Dan Tindall (Schooner), aground, 1 Aug 1867

Full Text

On Sunday the intelligence reached this port that a disaster had happened to the schr. DAN TINDALL while on the passage down from Lake Superior, laden with cargo of iron ore. On Saturday, while off Pt. au Barques, she sprung a leak, and in order to save the vessel from going down with all on board, was run for the shore, and sunk in shoal water. The tug B.B. JONES, with steam pumps, left this port on Sunday afternoon to go to her relief, and ere this has reached the scene of disaster. With favorable weather the vessel may possibly be rescued, although the chances, to say the least are not altogether in her favor.
