The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Fame (Schooner), U9213, dismasted, 1880

Full Text

The schooner FAME, Captain J.H. Ingram, with lumber from Muskegon to Detroit, was struck by a squall off Little Point Sauble, Wednesday night, carrying away her masts, jibboom, bowsprit, and all the rigging. The crew escaped without injury, but the captain was carried overboard by the falling debris, and injured quite severely in the side and limbs, though no bones were broken. The wreck was discovered Thursday noon by parties at Pentwater, who telegraphed the information to Ludington, and the tug MESSENGER immediately went to the rescue, and reached Ludington Friday morning about 3 o'clock with the dismasted vessel and much of the rigging and spars, which had been made fast by the crew.
