Shipwreck Is Uncovered On New Jersey Shore

Folks are still trying to determine the history of a wooden wreck recently unearthed along the Jersey Shore.

A change in sand levels has revealed the frame of a 25-foot vessel, first spotted this week at Stone Harbor Point in Cape May County. Its exact origin is unknown, but some are speculating the wreck to be the remains of the D.H. Ingraham, a schooner that dates back to the late 19th century.

The Ingraham sank in 1886 about a mile-and-a-half from the Hereford Inlet after catching fire while hauling limes to Richmond, Virginia. Groundings were common for ships before engines were used.
