The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Joseph Paige (Schooner), U75593, aground, 2 Dec 1897

Full Text

Few tears would be shed by vessel owners if the underwriters were called upon to pay for a few more vessels like the JOSEPH PAIGE, which stranded on Vermilion point, Lake Superior, Wednesday, and was pronounced a total loss. The PAIGE was a good vessel in her time but she was beyond the money-making mark. The danger of loss of life is all that is taken into account by vessel owners in discussing accidents of this kind. John F. Wedow of Cleveland was managing owner of the PAIGE. She was insured in companies represented by Smith, Davis & Co. of Buffalo for $12,500.
