Georgie Kelley (Schooner), U85316, sunk, 30 Mar 1879

Full Text

Within a day or two past the wreck of the old schooner GEORGIA KELLEY, which has been lying half submerged in the mud and water near Jones's Dry Dock, has been moved by the water and ice down the river, where she has sunk, but so far in shore as to be out of the track of passing vessels. Last season the Post & Tribune suggested that this and other old hulks that are out of commission, and utterly beyond repair, be either burned up or torn to pieces. The suggestion is renewed.
