Title: Azov
Author: Unknown; Unknown
Description: The “Azov” was built by John Simpson of Wellington Square (Hamilton), Ontario, Canada in 1866. The Canadian schooner measured 108.3 feet long, 23.5 feet wide and 10 feet deep. There is little history between when the vessel was built and they year it sank. On October 22, 1911, she capsized and foundered on Lake Huron, twenty miles east of Point aux Barques, Michigan, as a result of heavy weather and gale force winds. The vessel did not immediately sink. The hull drifted approximately sixty miles and sank near Port Elgin, Ontario. Captain McDonald, his family (wife and son), and crew boarded a life boat and landed safely in Goderich, Ontario. This picture of the “Azov” shows the wooden schooner traveling on the River St. Clair in Michigan.
