Last Document Surrendered Chicago, 9/05/1860.
"The rain storm of Saturday ended in a hurricane Saturday night, which inflicted heavy damage on shipping. The schooner Levant
on her way from Manistee to Chicago loaded with shingles sprung a leak and became waterlogged and capsized. All on board were lost except one. About day break Sunday morning the mate of the schooner D.P. Dobbins
heard a cry of distress from the wreck. The Dobbins
put about and sent a yawl to the wreck. Four of the crew were lashed to the wreck and dead. Three were on the wreck living but two were helpless. One sunk at the wreck and became lifeless. Two more were got into the yawl but one died before reaching the Dobbins
. One only was saved." 10/14/1871
