Final Voyage

November 1895. The two masted schooner Maria had taken on a cargo of wooden railroad ties at Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Soon after departing the harbor, a storm struck, she was heavily leaking and was in danger of sinking. The captain put up a distress signal and the six man crew was rescued by local fishermen. The following morning, the Maria was found to be aground near Two Rivers and breaking up.
