Lake Huron - Cornelia B. Windiate
    
    The ship was lost in 1857 near the Alpena/Presque Isle area.
    
    Dekina writes: "She was just 136 ft long and 26 ft wide. She was only 2 years old when she failed to make an appearance at her final destination on her last run of the season between Chicago and Buffalo and was given up for lost. Since no records existed of Windiate passing through the Straits of Mackinac, she was thought to be lost in Lake Michigan for almost 100 years until she was discovered in almost 200 ft of water in Lake Huron’s famous “schooner valley” stretching few miles offshore between Rogers City and Alpena, Michigan."
