Service History


The Perry Hannah was a two masted schooner built in 1859. Last Document Surrendered Chicago 4/23/1881: "Total Loss"
Final Voyage


"During the same severe gale of 10/16/1880 that sank the Goodrich steamer Alpena, the schooner Perry Hannah was driven ashore at Jacksonport. the vessel which was loaded with hemlock ties, demolished Reynold's pier as she went ashore, eventually coming to rest in eight feet of water." "The wrecked schooner Perry Hannah has been removed from her original position and hauled alongside the pier and the ties taken out of the hold and loaded on another vessel." "The wreck of the old Perry Hannah still lies on the south side of Reynold's pier."
Today


"The vessel Perry Hannah rests in 6' of water and intersects the wreck of the Cecilia; about 1/2 is extant. Wreck is broken and scattered; consists of 100 feet exposed keel and the disarticulated but largely intact centerboard trunk (2'5" x 5'8"); the pivot assembly is missing. A keel timber attached to the bottom of the trunk has a butt joint at the aft end & is broken 7' past the forward end. The vessel was salvaged."
