THE DISASTER AT PELEE ISLAND. - The name of the scow that was wrecked off Pelee Island Friday morning was the Adeen [sic], of Port Huron, Capt. Caugbell. She lies about three miles northeast of Middle Island on her beam ends, with topmasts out of the water. A portion of the crew were engaged getting off upper sails, rigging, etc. From them it was learned that her cargo consisted of coal and crude petroleum. The cook, (a woman) was lost. A tug had attempted to tow the vessel into shoal water, but was unable to move her. A number of barrels of oil had washed ashore at put-in-Bay.
So says the Sandusky Register. The scow in question must be the Addain, instead of the Adeen, as we know of no such named vessel.
