Dall (1884) writes that in 1796, disturbances on nearby Bogoslof were accompanied by volcanic activity in the craters of Makushin on Unalaska Island, as well as in craters of volcanoes on Umnak Island.
Sapper (1917) reports underwater explosions off the southeast coast [of Unalaska] in 1795. Perhaps this date is in error and should be in 1796. If so, this report could be talking about Bogoslof, or about some other submarine activity near Unalaska.
