The Maritime History of the Great Lakes

Full Text

No findings of the Jane Miller yet, although various rumours are afloat to the effect that her whereabouts have been discovered and an effort will be made to raise her.

The Frances Smith came out of dry dock on Monday afternoon. She will lay at Harrison's dock during the winter where her bulwarks and other repairs will be made.


It is our sad duty this week to chronicle the loss of one from our vicinity by the sinking of the ill-fated vessel the Jane Miller. This was Robert Gillesby who lives about three miles from this place. He was on his way to Tobermorry where he intended lumbering this winter.
