Lake Erie PA wreck sites

I am heading to Lake Erie to dive. I found coordinates for the Armour and the crib wrecks. Does anyone know the coordinates of the Eldorado? I’ve read it was east of 4 mile creek. Or any other wrecks under 50 feet close to Presque?

Thanks Tim

Here’s a list and it’s on there. The mark seems to be on land.

Eldorado: Schooner of 489 tons sank on 11/20/1880 East of Presque Isle at the mouth of the harbor at Erie

Maybe this will help.

Thanks Eric. Wikipedia has the Eldorado, Crete and Canobie all at the same coordinates. The Canobie is buoyed, I found the Crete, but had not found the Eldorado. Still looking...
