The schooner Maggie L was built in 1889 at Picton, Ontario by the well known builders Redmond. Maggie Lsuffered a fatal blow June, 1927 when she cut out of the channel towards the Clayton NY Harbor and into the path of a steel freighter (possibly “Keyvive”).

With her bow totally removed she sank quickly in 75 ft. of water. The bow section has never been found.
