Dear JIm,Do you know of an estimate of the approximate number of lives lost in shipwrecks on Lake Ontario? Just curious susan P G

I'm working on an expanded version of my Ariadne's Death book about shipwrecks on the lake. Also do I recall you once estimated about 500 deep water intact wrecks might exist? Thanks

Hi Susan,
The largest loss of life, 120 persons, was in 1780 with the crew and passengers on HMS Ontario.
I have never seen an estimage of the number of lives lost on Lake Ontario but I would guess that it is probably well over 200.
