Lottie Wolf (Schooner), U14807, aground, 11 Oct 1881

Full Text

The Revenue Cutter ANDY JOHNSON arrived at Milwaukee Monday, towing the lumber laden schooner LOTTIE WOLF, which dragged ashore on Beaver Island last Tuesday and lost her shoe, thus disabling her. Captain Kelly says that the storm was a very severe one and his two anchors failed to hold the vessel. He was compelled to jettison about 6,000 feet of lumber in order to expedite the vessel's release.
