Near The Site Of Peter Millar's Tragic Death

In An Account Of Peter Millar's Death In The Detroit River, the course of the ill-fated yacht, Mattie, was "lay from Stony Island" after leaving the dock at Grosse Isle, Michigan.

From a newspaper account:  "The voyage __ and in contemplation was scarcely; the course lay from Stony Island down the Canadian (side), past Malden and around outside of Bois Blanc Island to Gibraltar on the American (side)."
