Conneaut, OH Terrible Storm, Nov 1846


It is now ascertained that nine persons perished during the late gale, six of whom died at or near Conneaut. The three lost from the little sloop Bayone, were JOSEPH TUBBS, Capt., his son, and a lad named REED, all of Conneaut.
The Conneaut Reporter says:
"The brig Osceola, Capt. HORACE SNOW, of this place, was wrecked opposite Quincy, and of the seven persons on board, four were drowned, and one (the Captain) died on Sunday last, from injuries received before he was taken from the wreck. Among those known to have perished on this vessel was FRANKLIN CROSBY, of this township, who has a family residing here. The Mate (MR. J. SPOONER, of this town,) and another hand are the only survivors, and they were so much injured as to be unable to reach their homes, for some days."
One hand, name not known, on board the Pinto, was washed overboard.
The brig Ainsworth, owned by A. P. LELAND, of this city, is ashore near Oswego. No cargo.
