Shenango No. 1 (Propeller), broke steering gear, 19 Feb 1896
- Full Text
Port Dover, Feb. 26 - The SHENANGO No. 1 left this harbor on Wednesday, Feb. 19, for Conneaut. When 12 miles south of Long Point lighthouse the steering gear was broken by the ice. On Sunday it was decided to send 12 men over the vast fields of ice to this place via Long Point Lighthouse, a distance of 35 miles. Some of the men became chilled and exhausted and had to be carried by their companions. Yesterday the entire party was driven by the lighthouse keeper, W.H. Stalker to this place. It is alleged that there is no danger of
the boat's sinking, and that the crew have provisions enough to last several days longer. With a favorable wind the SHENANGO will be able to make her destination.
