George A. Marsh

From SpottingWorld, the Hub for the SpottingWorld network...

The George A. Marsh was a three-masted schooner built in Michigan in 1882 as a lumber carrier. In 1914, the Marsh was sold to a Belleville, Ontario man as a coal carrier.

The Marsh met her demise on August 8, 1917, when she sank during a storm, with a loss of twelve of the fourteen crew (including seven children between the ages of one and thirteen).

The wreck of the Marsh currently rests in Lake Ontario, in roughly 80 feet of water.
