Final Voyage


In October of 1871, the bark G.L.Newman of Racine, with a cargo of lumber from Little Suamico, went ashore on the southeast point of Green island. The Green Bay Advocate of October 19, 1871, reported her to be "full of water, her cabin washed out and ... is abandoned as a wreck." She ran aground due to smoke from Peshtigo fire.
