Final Voyage


"The scow Ida H. Bloom, of Milwaukee, loaded with wood and ties, struck a rock near Claybanks this morning, staving a large hole in her bottom. She immediately filled and sunk in eight feet of water. ...Capt. Murphy says the vessel lies about 1000 feet from shore, one mile below the pier at Claybanks, with a large rock through her bottom, the water roundabouts being nine feet deep. It is doubtful if she can outlive the northeaster which set in after the mishap..." "Vessel was stripped and abandoned." Last Document Surrendered, Milwaukee: March 31,1880 "Total Loss".
