These pages come from the 1856 book, Lloyd's Steamboat Directory and Disasters on the Western Waters, recently reprinted by Jay Richiuso of Land Yacht Press. The Fitch and Fulton biographies are just a portion of the book's introduction. We highly recommend the book - it mainly consists of newspaper articles describing steamboat wrecks, including names of people who died. Great for genealogists.
