The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
John Young (Brig), collision, 3 Oct 1861

Full Text

A collision took place the night before last some 8 miles below Bar pt. between the brigs S.C. WALBRIDGE and JOHN YOUNG. Both vessels were grain loaded and bound down, but the latter vessel at the time was running back for the purpose of making a lee. The WALBRIDGE had her head gear carried away besides some slight injury to her bows. The YOUNG lost one of her davits, which we learn was all the damage she sustained. Both vessels returned to Malden where they underwent temporary repairs, after which they proceeded on their voyage down.
