Last Document Surrendered Cleveland, 6/15./1889: "Loss Of Vessel"
Final Voyage


"After loading a cargo of squared lumber in Duluth, the schooner-barge M.R.Warner proceeded as consort to the steamer Superior. On November 3, 1893 her towing hauser was cut or parted in the heavy weather, leaving the Warner to run aground on the west end of Sand Island. Her crew was saved, but she was broken amidships and heavily damaged on the starboard side. The tugs Simpson and Smith, along with the schooner Austin, were able to salvage some 250,000 feet of the lumber, but the Warner was reported going to pieces in late November."
