The Annie M. Peterson was a 2-masted wooden schooner-barge built in 1874. She sank in a storm on November 19, 1914 off the mouth of Two-Hearted River on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, when she was lost from her towline, and broke up offshore in heavy seas.

Winter storms in 2003 revealed her ice-encased remains, imbedded in the Lake Superior shoreline, about 6 miles east of Grand Marais. Last I heard, she had disappeared again.
