Anon. 1898. One hundred and forty-two vessels… wrecked. The Recorder, Boone County, Burlington, KY, 1898.
One hundred and forty-two vessels in all are known to have been wrecked on Sable Island. These were ships, brigs, barks, schooners and brigantines. There has doubtless been a number of other vessels that have been wrecked on the island of which there is no record. In former years vessels would “disappear,” but how, when or where did not trouble the world in general.
