Believed to be the schooner Sam Cooke also referred to as the Battersby
Island Wreck. This shipwreck is that of a three masted schooner.. The Sam Cooke was built at Oswego
, New York in 1873. In 1882 the Cooke was blown towards Battersby
Island by a strong breeze. Unfortunately the ships anchor did not hold and she was run aground. No lives were lost. Later the cargo of iron ore and the ships fittings were salvaged.
