WRECKAGE OF THE CHICORA

John Lesser, a farmer near Buffington, Ind., has reported finding near his place a piece of wreckage of the steamer Chicora, which was lost in January, 1895, with twenty-six people aboard. The wood found by Lesser is fifteen feet long and bears, besides the initials of Graham & Morton, the name Chicora. The steamer left Milwaukee for St. Joe, Mich., with a cargo offlour, and was never again sighted.

Notes:
Further searches were made during 1896 and 7. At least two "spiritualists" claimed to know where she was, including one who said he had a contract signed by the ghost of the captain giving him half the value of the steamer for finding her.
