Wyoming (Schooner), overboard, 5 Aug 1863

Full Text

DROWNED. - On Wednesday, August 5th, Michael Lyons, a lad some 15 years of age, was lost overboard and drowned from the schooner WYOMING on Lake Michigan, near Point Betsey. At the time he was assisting in winging out the foresail, and by some means got foul of the foresheet and was jerked overboard, the wind blowing fresh and considerable sea on. Before the boat could be lowered away, he sunk to rise no more. He hailed from Toronto, C.W., where it is believed his friends reside. His effects with the wages due him may be had by addressing Capt. John Furlong, of the schooner WYOMING, at Buffalo or Chicago. - Canada papers will please copy. - Detroit Free Press.
