Title: May Graham - 91173
Author: Unknown
Description: The small river steamer "May Graham" was built in 1879 at St. Joseph, Michigan. On an August afternoon about 1897, the wooden hull of the "May Graham" was punctured by a log. Her captain ran the steamer, which was taking on water, full speed toward a sand bar. After the steamer ran aground, the 75 passengers were taken back to St. Joseph via row boats and carriages. The hull was repaired, and the "May Graham" was put back in service.
