The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
F. M. Knapp (Barge), aground, 14 Nov 1901

Full Text

At Ashtabula yesterday the tug SUNOL attempted to tow the barge F. M. KNAPP into the harbor but failed because there was no towline on board of the vessel that would bear even a moderate strain. After parting lines five times the KNAPP essayed to come to anchor, but the mudhooks would not hold and she drifted ashore about a quarter mile east of the piers. being without cargo the seas drove her well up toward dry land. The cook, Mrs. Abraham King, wife of the master and owner of the vessel, were taken ashore by the lifesavers.
