A wooden steamer built in 1868 used to haul passengers and freight throughout the lower Great Lakes. She rammed a cake of ice, which filled the hole it had made in her hull. She rushed for shore, but as the ice melted, the vessel filled and sank. Bound Milwaukee for Ludington, she was a total loss of 35,000. She was a Northern Transportation Co. boat serving small Lake Michigan ports out of Grand Haven.
