I have an interest in Pacific Mail ocean-going sidewheel steamers in the late 1860s, similiar to the Colorado and Golden City. Can anyone point me to a book or other source of schematics, deck plans, photos, paintings, engine details, etc.? I vaguely remember seeing a book about 20 years ago on this subject, but I can't come up with a title or author. Any help will be appreciated.

Who knows the story of the John L. Lowry, a packet boat that plied the waters of the Ohio River? Can anyone tell me who owned the Lowry, what happened to her and how long she was in service? What were her main ports of call? I have what I believe are some old photos of the John L. Lowry with some of my ancestors aboard. I understand there were riverboat captains in my family and would love to learn more. My Lowrys lived on the Ohio River in Shawneetown, IL, and on the Mississippi River near Cape Girardeau, MO.::::

I would like to know if you have any information or photos of the JW Callahan which ran the flint river. JW Callahan was my Great Grandfather. I have seen some photos that other people own. I would like to have a little more history on him and his fleet. I have been in the home in Bainbridge that my Grandmother and mother lived in. It was actually built to look like one of his boats. Very interesting house in deed. You may e-mail me with any information that you may have for me. I would certinly appreciate it. ::::Susan Jones

I came here looking for your clipart. I was in bad need of a good pix of a steamboat... even though your clipart is offline at the moment I really enjoyed the pictures. I live on the Ohio River at Gallipolis, I have seen the Delta Queen alot of times but I still get a lump in my throat when I see the steam rise and hear the test notes of the calliope as she turns the bend and heads for the dock... She has not stopped here for years. It is a shame because every child should be able to see this great part of our River heritage... My father is a retired journalist for the Gallipolis Tribune. As a child I have had the privilege to sit in the pilot's chair with my hands on the pilot wheel as my father talked about the river with Captain Wagner.... ::I am in the process of putting my father's writings together. He wrote a column for the Athens Messenger and the Gallipolis Tribune called "Fifty Years Ago on the River.... In just a few short years we will be able to change the title to 100 years on the river. I enjoyed my time spent here . I have returned several times in the last few days to recapture my youth... The Queens were by this town this week. Neither one of them stopped ... I am so sad but am glad you have the site to go to. Thank you for your devotion to the steamboats. Cheryl Enyart , Gallipolis, Ohio May 10,2003::

I have a great grandpa who worked on a Mississippi river boat in the 1800's. I am hoping for some record of this in order to help me with my family geneology his name was Alfred Johnson he had red hair and was given the nickname on board of "Pinky". I am in hopes that you may have some imformation on him and his home town while he was employed for the Mississippi river. Sincerely, Cynthia

I am trying to find information on a steamboat owned by my great grandfather, Horace Richardson. The name of the boat was The Melvin. It was located on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH. My father has the original operators license, the binacle, misc. paper documents, etc from this ship. I'm trying to find any other information or items that pertain to this ship. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
