Schooner Lucy Russell ~ 21 June 1903

Annual Report of the Operations of the United States Life-Saving Service for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1903:

Stranded through miscalculation near the shore ½ mile S. of the station, at 2.15 a.m. She was sighted at 4.30 a.m. by the keeper, who set the call signal (inactive season), and a temporary crew soon arrived. The life savers boarded the wreck several times, and landed the crew of 9 with their dunnage at station, where they were succored for several days. The schooner was turned over on the 27th to wreckers, who stripped her, and the hull was sold at public auction on July 13 following.
