On December 15, 1886, the schooner Evergreen was enroute to New Bedford, MA from Philadelphia, PA when it wrecked on Romer Shoal! The Evergreen had been carrying 210 tons of coal when it experienced bad weather and wrecked. The crew was safely landed on Sandy Hook, but unfortunately the Evergreen sunk, and the owners had no insurance on the vessel.
