Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Lexington (Steamboat), aground, 7 Nov 1848
Full Text

A regular old-fashioned snow storm sprung up about 12 o'clock last night, and great fears are entertained for the safety of vessels bound up and down. The steamer LEXINGTON was reported ashore this morning at Silver Creek. She left here about 9 o'clock last night, but a telegraph despatch received from Fredonia about 9 o'clock this morning gave no confirmation of the report. The brig LUCY A. BLOSSOM, arrived safely at this port about 11 o'clock this morning.
