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.
