Description
Full Text

“Vessel Sunk - The Oswego Times reports that the schooner E. Hall, Capt. David O'Hagan, with a cargo of coal from Big Sodus to Gananoque, has sunk about fifteen miles from land, off Fair Haven. The crew escaped. The vessel sprung a leak, the water gained steadily on the pumps, and she went down slowly out of sight. The Hall was an old schooner, and was not of great value. Capt. O'Hagan was the nominal owner, but H.B. Rathbun & Co. held a mortgage of $1,500 on her. They also owned her cargo of coal. The schooner was insured for $1,500.”

Schooner E. HALL Canadian. Of 170 tons. Built at Port Dover, Ont., in 1864.
