Detroit Free Press:-- The schooner Q. A. GILMORE, ashore on Gull Island reef, has been abandoned. All the coal that could be removed was taken out of her and her bottom was found to be in a very bad condition. The GILMORE was built at Black River in 1867, and is the property of More and others of that place. She is of no rating and is of fifty-one tons burden.
