Moonlight was built in 1874. In addition to service in the Great Lakes, Moonlight also sailed in the Atlantic Ocean. She sank in September 1903 in a storm while hauling iron ore from Ashland, Wisconsin. In use as a tow barge, Moonlight was under tow by the steamer Volunteer. Both ships were loaded with iron ore in Ashland and were headed for their destination when a violent storm erupted and ruptured the seams of Moonlight's hull.
