Tom Martin (Schooner), waterlogged, 1 Jun 1875

Full Text

The schooner P. MARTIN (sic), Capt. Thornton, loaded with 1,000,000 barrel hoops from Bay City for Oswego, sprang a leak near Middle Sister Island, about 6 o'clock Wednesday afternoon and waterlogged, losing overboard about 120,000 hoops. The schooner FLEETWING tied up all night alongside of her and on Thursday moring the tug OSWEGO came along with a tow and brought her in to Kevill's wharf at this port. The captain went to Detroit to get a tug to tow her up for less than the OSWEGO wished to charge.

The schooner TOM MARTIN, waterlogged here last week, discharged part of her cargo on Kevill's dock and, having been pumped out and raised, left for Lake Erie after receiving temporary repairs to try to recover part of her cargo.
