The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Monticello (Schooner), U90203, aground, 15 Aug 1904

Full Text

The schooner MONTICELLO stranded at Port Cresent Tuesday night and the accident was considered trivial, but a heavy north wind has made the vessel a bad wreck. The schooner had a cargo of sand when she struck on the rocks, and although aid was given her the boat could not be released. The heavy wind Wednesday night caused a leak and the boat soon went to pieces. The crew of the MONTOCELLO was taken to East Tawas by the propeller WYOMING.
