The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Forest Grove (Schooner), adrift ?, 19 Nov 1857

Full Text

The Chicago Times of Saturday, gives the following list of disasters:-
      The DIE VERNON, one of the Lake Navigation Company's vessels, was brought in in a shattered condition, her bulwarks gone and her rigging torn to pieces. Three of the crew were badly frozen.
      The schooner FOREST GROVE, a new vessel of about 120 tons, was overtaken by the gale, made for Racine harbor. As she struck the pier and went through, her crew leaped off. Her sails, however, filled, the vessel was blown out to sea, and when last seen was bearing southeast, with two reefs in mainsail and foresail. Her cargo of fish and lumber is valued at $9,000.
