Wonderful site, I love it. As a young boy growing up in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta region of California. I lived not too far from where the Delta Queen was moored after WWII. My friends and I would sneak aboard and play on her decks. These were wonderful times. We played on her and respected her for her beauty. Even though at that time she was in terrible condition. I remember seeing her being towed downstream towards San Francisco.::::In 1995 our family was onboard the American Queen heading downstream towards St. Louis. As we approached St. Louis, I saw the DQ headed upstream. It brought cold chils to my body to see her again. I hadn't seen her since that day on the banks of the Sacramento River as she was leaving the area. I can still remember the good times we had playing on her and the thrill of seeing her again in 1995.::::Don

Actually a genealogy buff (since 1980) working om my MOORE and TOBIN lines - Collateral connection with John W. TOBIN (his sister Mary Emily TOBIN is my ancestor) and Capt. Len MOORE (husband to Mary Emily - and also a direct ancestor). I have been collecting information on the various John TOBIN Mississippi boats, and the Ouachita River Packets owned and Captained by Len MOORE. I live near New Orleans and have access to the New Orleans Collection (Tobin Papers). Interested in connecting with anyone researching these people. I have all the family well researched - but looking for info and photos for the boats (J. M. WHITE is already well documented).

Hi. I was looking over some old photographs that came into my possession after the death of my grandparents. On the back of one was written, "Heisner 1803 built first steamboat in France 1807 ran first steamboat up the Hudson by Fulton". I am wondering if this man is a relative. The photo is of a Hannah wife of Samuel Stone of Alborough Yorkshire England. They married in 1865 in England. Is there any record of the crew members of these steamships or any way I can learn more about this "Heisner"?

My great grandfather, Captain Edward Francis Irvine, was a steamboat builder and captain. He built the "Old Mohawk" steamboatin St. Louis sometime in the early to mid 1800s according to an article found in "The Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Northwestern Louisiana." His obituary also stated he captained one of the first steamboats on Red River in Shreveport, Louisiana, one of which was mentioned was the "Neck (possibly Nick?) Biddle. An article in the Bastrop Advertiser newspaper of Bastrop, Texas states that he also built a ferry boat there which was completed by 1858. Captain Irvine settled in Shreveport, Louisiana and lived there with his large family until his death in 1879. Any additional information on Captain Irvine or the steamboats he captained will be appreciated.

Great boat. My wife's grandfather piloted & worked on the Queen while it traveled on the Sacramento River. We had the pleasure of spending a week on her from New Orleans to Vicksberg on the Mississippi several years ago. My Mother remembers taking many trips from Sacramento to San Francisco on the Delta King & the Delta Queen when she was a young girl. We see the Delta King often since it is docked permanently in "Old Town Sacramento", about a mile from where we live. Nice to visit your site! Dick Gould
