SISKAWIT - Mutiny and Wrecking from Tom's blog

On 25 December 1849 the SISKAWIT (1839) (wooden schooner, 50 t, built in 1840) was sailing light on Lake Superior when a storm drove her onto a bar near the mouth of the Chocolay River, southeast of Marquette, Michigan, where she was wrecked. Those aboard had “kidnapped” her and her cargo at L’Anse a few days earlier.
