The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Wabash (Schooner), waterlogged, 1 Aug 1845

Full Text

About noon on Sunday last a vessel was discovered off Grand River, with a signal of distress flying. Capt. Conner, of the U. S. Revenue Cutter (which fortunately happened to be in port,) immediately dispatched his boats with a party of men under the command of Lieut. Kerryman to the assistance of the vessel, which proved to be the schr. WABASH in a sinking condition, bound for Buffalo with a full cargo of wheat and flour. They succeeded in getting the vessel into Grand River Harbor, where they got out most of her cargo in a
damaged state.
      The officers of the Cutter deserve much praise for the prompt and efficient aid rendered the distressed vessel by them and their brave fellows, without which, she would have inevitably gone to the bottom. - Painesville Telegraph.
