Star of the North (Schooner), U22360, capsized, 14 May 1872
- Full Text
The schr. STAR OF THE NORTH laden with railroad ties, which passed down on Saturday, was struck by a heavy squall on the evening of that date while near Pt. au Pele, which capsized her, the crew barely escaping with their lives. The vessel is owned in Chicago by C.J. Magill, and was built in Cleveland in 1854. The greater portion of her cargo will probably be a total loss.
