While some authors give these vessels other names, Cuthbertson's research in Freshwater seems indisputable. These ships were of some 8o-tons displacement, 60 feet long, 14 feet wide, schooner-rigged and armed with three four-pounders on each side. Each carried two swivel-mounted guns at the bows. 4 The Michigan was shipwrecked at Point Albino, along the south shore of Lake Erie between present-day Buffalo and Erie, Pennsylvania, on August 28, 1763.
