C. Y. Richmond (Schooner), U4275, aground, 24 Oct 1870

Full Text

During the prevalance of the heavy gale of Tuesday evening the schooner CHARLES Y. RICHMOND, a large fore-and-aft schooner, was driven into Conneaut. In coming in she struck the east pier. The water, which was at a high stage at the time, soon receded and left the vessel in a serious predicament. The crew attempted to heave her off, but to no purpose. We learn the insurance company have taken charge of her. The RICHMOND hails from Buffalo, and is bound for Toledo. She was a craft that a few years ago crossed the Atlantic with a cargo of black walnut lumber, making sone quick time on the voyage. - Cleveland Herald.
