The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Detroit Tribune (Detroit, MI), May 26, 1886

Full Text

The schooner Elgin, a Canadian craft, after 12 years of service, lies moored at Chicago, apparently without an owner. Late last fall she was badly wrecked at Racine, costing nearly $3,000 to release her. The parties who formerly owned her do not feel disposed to pay this claim, and the insurance company will have none of her.

Media Type:
Item Type:
She was subsequently sold at a marshal's sale to recover the wrecking bill and became an American bottom (US#135898). She was wrecked northeast of Duluth in 1906, after a 32-year career.
