The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Alert (Schooner), U105101, lost, 1 Sep 1904

Full Text

It is feared the schooner ALERT, owned by Leatham & Smith of Sturgeon Bay, has been wrecked in the storm on lake Michigan. Wreckage has been washed ashore at Northport, some pieces bearing the name ALERT, and the large quantity of lumber floating in the lake would indicate it is the cargo of the schooner. The boat's lifeboat has not been washed ashore and if the schooner is a wreck, it is hoped the crew will be saved.
