R. R. Elliott (Barge), adrift, 27 Oct 1866


Description
Full Text

Four barges, named respectively the ONTARIO, ARK, ELLIOTT and DETROIT, all laden with lumber, while on a passage down from Saginaw, it is reported, broke adrift from the tug which had them in tow, and were at last accounts adrift on Lake Huron, at the mercy of the winds and waves. Assistance we have learned has been sent to search out their whereabouts, and it is hoped the lives of those on board, at least, may be rescued, if not the property recovered.
