The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Irene (Schooner), aground, 20 Nov 1876

Full Text

The schr. IRENE, Capt. Price, which left Oswego for Olcott with plaster, went ashore Saturday night at Braddock's Pt., during the prevalence of a snow storm. The tug BARNES of Charlotte attempted to get her off, but was unsuccessful. The captain has engaged the tug SUMNER and a steam pump to go to the relief of the vessel. The IRENE is owned by Capt. Price and is not insured.

The schr. IRENE has not yet been pulled off the beach at Braddock's Pt., Lake Ontario. The vessel was pumped out, but as she lies in shallow water, the tug SUMNER could not get near enough to render assistance. Another line was sent to Charlotte by rail, which will enable the tug to haul her off.
