The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Seabird (Scow), aground, 1 Apr 1873

Full Text

The party which set out with the tug H.N. MARTIN a few days since to rescue the scow SEABIRD, sunk at Kelley's Island, were unsuccessful in their mission. Soon after the work was commenced towards raising her, a storm arose which broke her into fragments in a short time, nothing being saved from her aside from portions of her outfit, and a small quantity of her cargo of coal, which was brought to this city on board the schr. FERRETT. The SEABIRD was built in 1855 on the River St. Clair, and was 74 tons burden.
