The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
George H. Warmington (Schooner), U85217, aground, 1 Jul 1899

Full Text

Just before she went ashore at Ashtabula a few days ago, the schooner WARMINGTON was sold to L. P. & J. A. Smith, public works contractors of Cleveland. But the sale was subject to delivery of the vessel in Cleveland, so that the Smith company loses nothing on account of the accident. Now that the WARMINGTON has been released, however, the transfer will probably be carried out immediately after necessary repairs are made. The Smith company will use the WARMINGTON in carrying stone from Kelley's island to the breakwater extension on which they are engaged at Cleveland.
