The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Emerald (Schooner), U36340, drifting, 1 Oct 1903

Full Text

Advices received from Chicago say that the mysterious wreck sighted by the crew of the schooner VEGA in midlake, about a week ago, and which caused so much anxiety, has turned out to be the old schooner EMERALD, formerly used as a tow-barge in the stone trade. The positive knowledge of the wreck has set at rest the minds of many persons regarding the whereabouts of vessels in which they were interested, a number of vessels being overdue in Chicago since the recent storms. The old schooner, was abandoned a week ago by the tug LEATHAM while towing it across the lake.
