Fox (Schooner), aground, 18 Nov 1867

Full Text

The vessel reported ashore at North Harbor Reef, Lake Erie, proves to be the schr. FOX, laden with staves, and was bound for Buffalo. She is full of water, badly conditioned, and will prove a total loss. The greater portion of her cargo, however, it is thought, will be saved. The FOX is owned by Capt. Buckley of Buffalo, and we understand is uninsured. She was 405 tons burden, and came out in 1852. The work of dismantling her we are informed has already been commenced. - Detroit Post

The Detroit Post says the parties who went to lake Erie to dismantle the brig FOX removed all that was of any value, and the vessel has been abandoned to the elements. Her cargo of staves, if cared for immediately, may be nearly all saved.
