The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Falcon (Schooner), waterlogged, 1 Jun 1859

Full Text

The Chicago Press says: "The schooner FALCON came into this port this morning, with the water some foot and a half over her deck. She left Grand Haven on Sunday morning, and had not been out more than two hours, when the water commenced gaining on her with all pumps at work. She soon filled, and sailed in full of water, the men being obliged to shift the best way they could for dry quarters. She was loaded with lumber, which prevented her from sinking. The leak was probably occasioned by her being strained by being on the beach some time ago.
