The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Caroline (Schooner), aground, 4 Apr 1844

Full Text

We are under apprehension for the safety of the schr. CAROLINE, at present laying heavily loaded with flour and pork, between horseshoe reef and Bird Island, at the head of Black Rock pier. Should the wind blow strong from the west, she will undoubtedly go to pieces on the rocks. We understand an effort will be made to get her off today, either by lightering or connecting her to a steamer by the means of hawsers.
