Final Voyage

"The scow-schooner Nellie and Annie, which has been lying on the bottom near the Sawyer dock all the past summer, was carried high and dry up on the beach by the storm of last week." The Advocate November 29,1906.

"All The remainder of the hull of the scow-schooner Nellie and Annie has been cut to the water's edge and the material used for fuel by the owner, only the bottom of the ancient craft remaining, and that is under water. She was built in Chicago thirty-seven years ago." The Advocate March 4, 1909.
