Service History

"The Norma was a "hooker" that belonged to Captain W.P. Kirtland of Egg harbor who carried on coastal trade between Door County and the west shore of Green Bay." Last Document Surrendered Milwaukee, 9/22/1900: "Total Loss"
Final Voyage

"The schooner Norma was blown ashore on 9/11/1900 in Egg Harbor during a blow. She became a total loss and her owner purchased the schooner William Finch to replace her. In November, Capt. Kirtland was engaged in salvaging the cargo and rigging of the Norma and had transferred these items to the William Finch when a northwester set in. The Finch began to leak but there was no danger until the pump broke and Capt. Kirkland had to let go his anchor and allow the schooner to go onto the beach rather than founder. She went ashore and broke up close to the wreck Norma."
