William Stone (Schooner), U81548, aground, 13 Oct 1901

Full Text

During the northwest gale Saturday night the schooner WILLIAM STONE was caught at a dock in Cecil Bay, Straits of Mackinac and driven ashore. Just before the schooner's lines parted three piles of lumber, estimated to contain, 125,000 feet, were blown over onto the vessel, smashing the cabin and part of the deck. The sailors were on deck at the time, trying to save their vessel. All escaped serious injury. The WILLIAM STONE was built at Vermillion, O., in 1896, and has a gross measurement of 185 tons.
