Lucia Simpson Schooner

Abstract

The Lucia Simpson was a three masted schooner that was built in Manitowoc Wisconsin by Rand & Burger in 1875. The connection with our family was that it was purchased in 1901 by Martin Sanderson the father of my Aunt Pearl Johnson. It was used between 1903 and 1929 to bring lumber from Escanaba, MI to the Sanderson Lumber Yard in Milwaukee, WI.
