The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Sarah E. Sheldon (Propeller), U115083, aground, 15 Sep 1897

Full Text

The steamer SARAH E. SHELDON, with the NEGAUNEE in tow, loaded for Tonawanda, went aground in Niagara River below the International Bridge Wednesday evening. The SHELDON was drawing more than 14 feet, which is too much for that route now. Tugs failed to move the stranded boat that night. But with better water she was released later without lightering.
