On February 2, 1913the City of Georgetown was in a collision with the steamship Prinz  Ockar. Damage was severe and the City of Georgetown went down quickly. Fortunately all of her eight crew members were saved. According to Bill Davis author of the book Shipwrecks of the Atlantic this wreck now sits in 112 feet of water on a clean sand bottom.
