Title: "Neshoto" 130440
Author: Unkown
Description: The bulk freighter, "Neshoto", was registered as a United States vessel. "Neshoto" was built in 1889 by Thomas Qualyle's Sons in Cleveland, Ohio for R. R. Rhoades et.al. of Cleveland, Ohio. The vessel measured 284.16 feet in length, 42.42 feet in wide and carried coal and ore as her main cargo. On September 27,1908, as "Neshoto" sailed on Lake Superior, smoke from a forest fire created a dense fog on the lake and the "Neshoto" ran aground. She was stranded 2 1/2 miles east of the United States Life Saving Station on Crisp Point, Michigan. Sixteen crew members were safely removed by the Life Saving Crew and taken to Soo by the steamship, "Maytham". Before the "Neshoto" could be rescued, a gale came up driving the vessel broadside into the waves smashing her into pieces.
