At the time of her launching in 1887 at Milwaukee, this bulk freighter was christened the Roswell P. Flower. At 264 feet long and 38 feet in beam, she was the largest wooden vessel on the Great Lakes for a brief period. In 1915 she was renamed Agnes W. after the daughter of her new owner. On July 2, 1918, she was carrying a cargo of grain when she was caught in a severe summer storm. She was stranded near Traverse Point and was pounded to pieces in the storm.
