Built in 1871, this iron-hulled steamer was designed to carry passengers and freight between Galveston, Texas, and New York. She sank in a storm on 24 October 1878 off the tip of Frying Pan shoals. Her broken and scattered remains now rest in 90' of water with much of the wreck sanded in. Rediscovered in 1987
