York State (Schooner), U2754, aground, 1 Sep 1882

Full Text

The steambarge BUCKEYE and her consort, the schooner YORK STATE, lumber loaded, got the full fury of the storm and made bad weather of it. The YORK STATE sprung a leak and water-logged. The BUCKEYE worked along with her until within fifteen miles of Chicago, when a tug took hold and helped her with the sunken vessel, there being great danger that she would capsize. At dark last evening they arrived at Chicago, and the YORK STATE grounded near the north pier, in the mouth of the harbor. Other tugs were called, and were working at her at a late hour.
