U.S. Army engineers repairing a jetty in New Jersey damaged by Hurricane Sandy has discovered the remains of a  wooden schooner  barge which sank in 1926.   Barges had numbers,  not names,  but the coal carrier  appears to be one of three lost on the same February day.

A layer of rocks has been placed over the exposed side to rebury the wreck, which is one of more than seven thousand wrecks along the coast of New Jersey.
