The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Mary Amelia (Scow), U50611, aground, 19 Oct 1870

Full Text

The storm was very severe on Lake Erie, Monday night. Three vessels were wrecked at or near Cleveland, the scows MARY AMELIA and EMMA BLAKE, and one of the crews of both were lost. An unknown vessel was driven ashore east of the city near the rolling mill. The Plain Dealer says it is seldom that so terrible a gale occurs on the lake.
