SWAN Steamer, burned at dock in Toledo. Property loss $16,000
Buffalo Morning Express
December 25, 1852 (casualty list)
. . . . .
The charred hull of the stmr. SWAN has been towed from Toledo to this city,
and now lies at the wharf near the Pontiac Railroad Depot. We noticed some men
yesterday, washing the ashes taken from her hold, like Californians in search of
the remains of the $400 in gold which was in the Captain's office, at the time
the fire occurred. The prospect of a recovery of any material portion of it
seems rather dubious.
