STONE HARBOR, N.J. (CBS) — An interesting discovery was made in Cape May County. Shifting sands on a Stone Harbor beach revealed what is thought to be a sunken ship from the 19th century.
A local historian believes the 25-foot-long vessel was the D. H. Ingraham, a schooner heading to Richmond, Virginia loaded with a shipment of limes.
Newspaper stories from 1886 tell of five crew members rescued from the ship after a fire broke out on board.
