Great lakes shipwreck researcher Brendon Baillod identified
the following ships as having wrecked within an area about 5 miles south of
Frankfort, Michigan and 5 miles north of Manistee, Michigan. “There may be a few
more wrecks in the target area, because locations given were somewhat inaccurate
back in the day, but these are the essential wrecks.”
very general descriptions such as “Arcadia” or “4 miles south of Frankfort,” the
map below identifies the very approximate places where those ships wrecked.
Note that the
ship names stacked up at Arcadia and Pierport are all described as having
wrecked at those general locations, and the order of their names does not
represent locations relative to each other.
