Minnie Sutton (Tug), aground ?, 1 Nov 1877
Full Text

P.M. Lathrop, of Cheboygan, has received a telegram from Sault Ste. Marie, stating that the lighter which broke away from Spectacle Reef with the tug MINNIE SUTTON had been found on the Manitoulin Islands, near Michael's Bay. The tow-post of the tug and lines were still attached to the lighter, and it is thought that the tug drifted with the lighter until it struck bottom, when, acting as an anchor, it held the lighter until the force of the sea tore out the tow-post, and that the tug is not very far from where the lighter was found.
