The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Ella Ellenwood (Schooner), U8604, aground, 1 Sep 1901

Full Text

A heavy easterly sea during Saturday night completely broke up the hull of the schooner ELLA ELLINWOOD, which sailed ashore about one mile north of Fox Point, or thirteen miles below Milwaukee harbor, and yesterday a few cords of bark which remained on top of the maple edgings in the hold, as well as a portion of the edgings, had drifted ashore in Whitefish Bay. The surface of the lake outside of the line of breaders were also strewn with the edgings and what appeared to be fragments of the hull of the craft, a strong current having carried them southward.

A dispatch from Milwaukee, received last night says that the schooner ELLA ELLINWOOD, which went ashore on North Point in a recent gale, was broken up by the north-wester on Saturday.
