Description
Full Text

The scow ELLEN GERLOW, bound from kelley's island to detroit with a load of stone, was caught in the storm Wednesday night of last week when entering the river and capsized within a short distance of Bar Point Lightship. The crew consisted of two men and a boy, who escaped in the small boat. The scow, emptied of its cargo, was driven ashore by the gale, badly demoralized.

NOTE:-- It is assumed that the ELLEN GERLOW is in fact the ELIZA GERLACH ???
