Melissa (Schooner), aground, 9 Nov 1864

Full Text

Mr. John Parsons of this town left his schooner at Sarnia and came home overland, since then he has not heard anything about her. It is to be hoped she escaped the late storm, but it is feared otherwise.
A schooner left here last week for Spanish River having a number of lumbermen on board, together with some horses and stores for the winter. It is currently reported and credited that she is lost together with all on board.
