The cook, a woman named Ida Strong, was lost. The captain and balance of the crew were saved in the small boat. The men were all on duty. The cook had retired, and the vessel sank so soon after she struck that it was impossible to render her any assistance. A tug went to the scene yesterday morning. - (Sandusky Register, 30th.

Lots of confusion in the papers on this name. ADDAIN is how it shows on most known registration documents. She was recovered from this seemingly fatal accident, and finally met her fate near Grindstone City, Michigan, in 1890.
