Full Text

DROWNED. - On the morning of the 8th, as the little schooner ANNIE VOUGHT was abreast of Southeast Bend, the main boom swung over, and striking Charles A. Lincoln, who was at the wheel, swept him overboard. Capt. Hall was on board at the time, heard the splash in the water and hurried aft, and although he called loudly he received no answer, nor could he see anything of the unfortunate man. After coming about twice the anchor was let go, and the schooner remained until morning, when search was instituted for the unfortunate man, but without avail. Mr. Lincoln was about 30 years of age, a resident of Port Huron, and was for a time in business there.
