Fox (Schooner), aground, 18 Oct 1867

Full Text

      The schooner reported ashore at North Shore Reef, Lake Erie, proved 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 learn, is uninsured. She was 406 tons burden, and came out in 1853. The work of dismantling her, we are informed has already been commenced. - Detroit Post.
