The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Hiram A. Calvin (Steamboat), aground, 19 Oct 1880

Full Text

Last evening about 7 o'clock the steamer HIRAM A. CALVIN, on her way down the river with wreckers and steam pumps on board, to raise the propeller LAKE MICHIGAN which struck and sunk on Monday night at Crossover Light, ran on a shoal about five miles east of Gananoque, near Duffin's Light; while the Captain and crew were at tea. It is thought she will be got off without serious damage. The steamer PIERREPONT took the pumps off the HIRAM CALVIN and has proceeded to the relief of the propeller LAKE MICHIGAN.
