The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Lizzie A. Law (Schooner), U140133, aground, 21 Sep 1881

Full Text

The schooner LIZZIE A. LAW, which struck a boulder near Bar Point Lightship while coming down Wednesday, reached Buffalo Saturday afternoon in tow of the tug PRINCE ALFRED. The vessel had a steam pump on board, but it was not used, as her own pumps kept her free. Her forefoot is gone, and she is otherwise damaged, and fifty-five bushels of the cargo were found to be spoiled by the leak.
