"At about 5 am on Monday 11/29/1881, the schooner Julia Smith
loaded with 60 cords of wood from Hibbard's pier at Jacksonport came to anchor off Ahnapee "close to shore and 80 rods north of the anchorage". In the face of a strong South wind, her anchors dragged badly and by 2 pm she was only in twelve feet of water. Believing the situation to be hopeless, the crew slipped the cable, and the Smith
grounded in seven or eight feet of water. The four man crew was rescued by the small boat from the scow Sea Star
. The Smith
went to pieces, wreckage later being washed ashore."
