The SS General Lyon Disaster-- Part 6:

The sad and largely forgotten story.

A few of the ship's passengers and crew were able to jump overboard.  Isaiah C. Colby of the 5th Ohip Cavalry grabbed a galley door and jumped into the water with it.  He ended up floating for three hours before he was rescued.
