Our Story

December 7th is remembered as -- in the immorTal words of FDR -- "a day which will live in infamy" because of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor Naval Base, Hawaii. The death toll from that sad day reached 2,403, including 68 civilians, and 1,178 injured.
But another tragedy occurred on December 7th, 1909 and, although decidedly less well known than the attack on pearl harbor, it still rings clear in the minds of those who lost ancestors that day, as well as to those who regard it as Lake Erie's greatest mystery.

Without question Lake Erie holds many secrets. Her shallow bottom is littered with thousands of shipwrecks; so many that Erie is said to have a higher concentration of wrecks than anywhere else on earth. Although hundreds of these wrecks have been located and identified, there are hundred, perhaps thousands, more waiting to be discovered. And the single most sought-after shipwreck, the one considered the "holy grail" of shipwrecks by Lake Erie wreck divers, is the Marquette & Bessemer #2.

The loss of the car ferry Marquette & Bessemer #2 in a violent storm in December 1909 has mystified historians, divers, and next-of-kin for more than a century. Not that such a large ship could suffer such a fate, but that a 350-foot vessel could remain undiscovered for so long. Of the five Great Lakes, Erie is the second smallest and the shallowest by far. Only about 210 feet deep at her deepest point, her average depth is only 62 feet. And yet, despite intensive searching, using state-of-the-art techniques and technology such as side-scan sonar, the ship has never been found. Where could she be?The M&B2 was a steel twin-screw car ferry 350 feet long overall, with a beam of 54 feet. On December 7th, 1909 at 10:43 am the Steamship Marquette & Bessemer No. 2 set sail from Conneaut, Ohio for Port Stanley Ontario, Canada. The four-year-old ship had on board 31 crew and one passenger, and a cargo consisting of 30 rail cars, 26 of which were loaded with coal, three contained steel, and another with castings, as well as some additional structural steel in her hold. She was on her regular daily run, which normally took a little over 5 hours. However, this was to be no normal run.

She was under the command of Robert Rowan McLeod, by all accounts a capable skipper who prior to this had commanded four other car ferries. His older brother, John, was firsT mate.  Shortly after her departure a massive storm bore down on Lake Erie, with winds to 70 knots and temperatures that dropped from 40°F to 10° F in less than 24 hours. The mighty M&B2 was never seen again. On December 12th a lifeboat containing the frozen bodies of nine of her crew, was found 15 miles off Erie, Pennsylvania.  

HOWEVER; RECENT NEW EVIDENCE HAS BEEN FOUND THAT INDICATE THE SHIP WAS ALSO CARRYING AN UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT OF A NEW RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPE, RSV707, THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAD HOPED TO DEVELOPE FOR MILITARY PURPOSES.  THERE WERE PROBLEMS WITH THE FORMULA AND IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE PROJECT SHOULD BE SCRAPPED AND THE MATERIAL DUMPED INTO THE DEPTHS OF LAKE ERIE.   tHIS ISOTOPE SPILLED ONTO THE CREW MEMBERS THAT DID NOT MAKE IT TO THE LIFEBOAT DURING THE WRECK.  IMMEDIATELY UPON CONTACT, THE ISOTOPE CHANGED THE MOLECULAR STRUCTURE OF THE CREWS DNA AND PUT THEM INTO A DEEP SLEEP THAT LASTED UNTIL MARCH OF THIS YEAR.  NOW, 107 YEARS LATER, THE CHEMICAL THAT CAUSED THE DEEP SLEEP HAS WORN OFF AND THE CREW MEMBERS HAVE BEGUN EMERGING FROM THE DEPTHS OF LAKE ERIE; MOSTLY IN THE GENEVA ON THE LAKE AREA. HAVING BEEN SUMBERGED, THE DARK AND COLD WATERS HAD HID THE MOLECULAR CHANGE TO THEIR DNA.  tHEY HAVE BEEN STROLLING THE GENEVA ON THE LAKE STRIP AMONG THE LIVING AND HAVE FOUND SANCTUARY IN A PLOT OF WOODS JUST 1 MILE SOUTH OF THE STRIP ON ROUTE 534.  aFTER THEY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO NORMAL AIR AND OXYGEN FOR A PERIOD OF 1 TO 2 WEEKS, THE MOLECULAR CHANGES TO THEIR DNA BEGAN TO BECOME VERY EVIDENT.  tHEIR FLESH LITERALLY IS FALLING OFF THIER BONES AND THEY LOSE ALL NORMAL COMMUNICATION ABILITY.  THEIR DIET CONSISTS OF THE BLOOD AND SKIN SCRAPPINGS OF THE LIVING.  IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE GENEVA ON THE LAKE AREA THIS SUMMER, YOU LIKELY ARE INFECTED WITH THIS ISOTOPE THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR DNA.  YOUR ONLY HOPE TO REMAIN AMONG THE LIVING IS TO COME AND ASSIST US IN ANNIHILATING THE ZOMBIES THAT WERE CREATED AND USING THEIR BLOOD TO GET THE ANTIDOTE, WHICH THE CLEVELAND CLINIC, IN COOPERATION WITH THE CENTERS FOR DIEASE CONTROL, HAS AGREED TO DEVELOP.  SUIT UP AND CLIMB ABOUARD OUR HI TECH ZOMBIE ANNIHILATION VEHICLE (zav) AND HELP SAVE THE WORLD BY SHOOTING THE ZOMBIES WITH THE ANTIDOTE.
