October 28,1892. A ninety-mile-per-hour NW gale hit the lumber schooner Four Brothers
near Hedge Hog Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin. Captain Gustav Mathison of Milwaukee dropped anchors to avoid stranding the vessel, but the chain to the big anchor parted and the craft dragged the smaller anchor ashore. A group of sailors from the schooner Annie Dow
stripped the vessel's outfit, but had to file suit to receive their pay.
The exact location is unknown other than near Hedgehog Harbor in Door County, Wisconsin, probably the west shore.
