The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Nellie (Scow), aground, 4 Oct 1877

Full Text

The wood scow NELLIE, with a freight from Canada, approached Cleveland Wednesday evening, and went to anchor just outside the piers, where she lay all night. Her captain refused to pay $3 to have her towed in. Yesterday morning, about the time a heavy northwester came up, she attempted to get in the harbor, but missed the channel and was carried hard aground on a sand beach west of the west pier, where she now vibrates between wind and waves.

      The wood scow NELLIE, which went ashore west of the west pier, last week, has been stripped of her canvas, topmasts, and the like, but still flounders in the sand, hard aground.
