The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Laketon (Propeller), aground, &c., 1 Oct 1867

Full Text

A correspondent of the Milwaukee Sentinel writes from Grand Haven that on Tuesday morning, as the propeller LAKETON was coming into Grand Haven from Muskegon ahead of the steamer DETROIT, she turned short in a big sea, and some trunks, which were lying against the gangway, broke through and tumbled into the lake, and proceeded to her dock, landed her passengers, and then went back to pick up the trunks. She had hardly got outside when she blew her cylinder and drifted upon the beach: but the tug TEMPEST being close at hand, she was pulled off in 10 or 15 minutes and towed inside. The repairs to her machinery will occupy about a week.
