The three masted schooner, Annabell Wilson, carrying a load of 1000 tons of coal was being towed from Erie, PA to Port Colboure when a storm forced them to find a safe harbor at Dunkirk, NY.   Before the tow could reach the harbor the schooner foundered.  The wreck is now scattered about the area where she sank.
