Title: I W Stephenson 100597
Author: Unknown
Description: The "I. W. Stephenson" was built of wood at West Bay City, Michigan in 1895. She was of 639 gross tons. She was owned by I. Watson Stephenson, a lumberman of Marinette, Wisconsin. She carried lumber down from the northern lakes to Cleveland, Ohio and lower lake ports. She also carried pulpwood, paper and at times coal. She was later owned by Nessen Transportation Company of Chicago, Illinois and later bought by the Saginaw Bay Transportation Company and finally by William B. Boom of Cleveland. In 1935, she was allowed to settle to the bottom at Cleveland, where she was converted into a breakwater shelter for small craft. In 1946, a fire destroyed some of her upper works, but she continued to serve her purpose.
