Last Document Surrendered Chicago 4/23/1881: "Total Loss"
"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."
"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."
