Service History

The Adell was a two masted, wooden, schooner and had been rebuilt in 1862. The schooner served a shipping role, and was listed as making previous trips with cargoes of fish and cedar posts.

Possible Canadian Registry.
Final Voyage

The schooner Adell went ashore in the gale of Nov. 6-19, 1869, in Milwaukee Bay, enroute from Two Rivers to Milwaukee. The vessel was valued at $500.00 (Marine Casualties 1869).

"Beached at South Pier, 1 mile below Bay View Pier." (near Milwaukee).

Wisconsin Historical Society Maritime Preservation and Archaeology files contain the following report: "A schooner Adell was reported sunk at Sheboygan harbor at this same time, but 'she can be raised without difficulty.' This is believed to be the Adell of Sheboygan, 19.03 total tons, 48.0 x 12.0 x 4.7 feet, two masts, wood hull, built Milwaukee, 1860. Her last document was issued at Milwaukee 4/26/1869. It is not known if she was salvaged from Sheboygan harbor."

The Active may have been recovered since a vessel of the same name sank on 11/8/1870 in the Sheboygan Harbor, reportedly a total loss.
