Final Voyage


"The schooner Pathfinder, belonging to Mr. Pauley, the Milwaukee comission merchant, went ashore north of Two Rivers Light during the gale, and as the shore is composed of a bed of quicksand she will be a total loss. The Pathfinder was valued at twenty thousand dollars, aside from the cargo, which consisted of twelve hundred tons of iron ore. She was in tow of the steambarge Sheriffs." "Vessel iced up in a gale and snow storm, struck bottom on reef 2 1/2 miles north of Two Rivers Point and filled."
Service History


The masts of the Pathfinder were strengthened in 1872.
Today


"Vessel is broken up in 10' of water; about 1/2 is extant. Anchors & rigging were salvaged."
