- Full Text
Chicago, Nov, 21. -- Early Thursday morning the schooner ELLEN SEVERISON made an attempt to run into Grand Haven for shelter. In doing so it struck the north pier, dismasting itself and went on the beach. It was bound for Ludington, light, with a crew of three men. The prompt arrival of the life-saving crew saved the men after several hours of hard work. The vessel is a total wreck. It was owned by Nicholson & Severison of Ludington. Loss, $6,000; no insurance.
Saturday, November 21, 1891
NOTE:-- No vessel of the name ELLEN SEVERISON could be found, but ELLEN STEVENSON is likely the vessel, if so she was got off and repaired.
