The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Preble (Brig), aground, 10 Nov 1845

Full Text

The INDIANA, SUPERIOR, WESTERN and HARRISON, have all come in since our
last. By them we learn something more in relation to the damage sustained by the recent storms.
      The schooner PILGRIM is sunk at Milwaukee. The schooner N.C. BALDWIN struck on the pier in attempting to make Conneaut harbor, on the evening of the 8th, carried away her rudder, and drifted into 4 feet of water, with 2 feet of water in her hold, considerably damaging her cargo of merchandise. The Revenue Cutter in attempting to make the same harbor struck the bar, and was driven ashore below the west pier. The St. LOUIS has been got off. The BUNKER HILL is still at the REBECCA. A part of her cargo has arrived. Capt. Whittaker's brig, near Madison Dock, has been got off, without great damage.
The brig PREBLE in coming into the harbor on Monday night, passed the north pier and drifted ashore. Lighters were placed alongside, and she was nearly ready to float when we saw her last, yesterday, and would be soon safe in port.
