The steamer ERIN was sunk in 1906, by collision with the steamer COWLE. The ship was nearly cut in two and sank immediately in the exact middle of the river. Half the wreck is in American waters, and the other half is in Canadian waters. Several of the crew were killed, and the sinking made national news. Stories of the ERIN sinking can be found in many old newspapers across the country.
