Michigan shipwreck hunters say they've found the remains of a schooner that sank in Lake Michigan in 1873.
The Michigan Shipwreck Research Association announced this week that the Lizzie Throop was found in 280 feet of water along western Michigan's coastline some 15 miles northwest of South Haven.
MLive.com reports the two-masted, 86-foot-long schooner set sail from Muskegon on Oct. 16, 1873, on a lumber run to Chicago, but sank during a squall.
Two crewmen died. Valerie van Heest is the shipwreck association's director.
