1. [RiverRats] Wiggins Ferry Company [1]
My grandfather, Willis Marion Anderson was born (1865) in St. Louis and "worked on the River." My only clues as to where he worked are some photos including one of a building which housed the Wiggins Ferry Co. and the St. Louis Tranfer Railway plus photos of several vessels including the Eagle Packet/Bald Eagle, Steamship Keystone State and the Erastus Wells--all taken in 1912. Further information about the Wiggins Ferry Co. or any other leads would be appreciated. Could someone possible check the C
2. [RiverRats] Civil War, Steamer "BlackHawk", and Curran [1]
Hi, I'm looking for information on the ship "Black Hawk" during the Civil War. James Curran enlisted in the Navy or Marines during the Civil War because he had experience working on Mississippi steamboats. He is said to have served on the "Black Hawk". He used other names, sometimes going as James Curran, James Duffy, or James Mackey (or Markey) Any information on specific ship, similar steamers during the Civil War, or on the person I'm researching will be appreciated.

5. listen please [1]
Sorry folks, I seldom make typos but that one was! When I said the Johnson's were free black and the rest were white, I went back into that line and altered the syntax a bit, and neglected to delete the word "white" where repeated. It looks, instead, like I just wrote the word "white" after my name at the bottom. I am not a skinhead racist or anything like that. Honest, it was just clumsy editing. Clem ps: The computer imp's out to get me today, folks. I sent this off as reply all and instead it w

9. Re: Is this a roll call? Clem here [1]
Hi again Clem, I liked your posting. :) I never heard of Mulungeons. Is that really a word? I've heard of Mulattos. Very interesting. I know that there were a lot of Free Blacks (very wealthy) in St.Louis, Mo. in the area known as "Frenchtown", and they were all very intelligent and spoke French. This area is now known as Soulard Market. I don't know if this helps, but I just thought I'd throw it in, for whatever it's worth. Good luck to all in your searches. John On Mon, 10 Apr 2000 12:50:5
10. [RiverRats] George A. Thompson [1]
Is there a roster to be checked for a possible river boat pilot name George A Thompson born about 1856 in Franklin Parish, LA and maybe died in Natchez MS in 1931. The story is that he boarded his 3 daughters in a girls school in Natchez while he was working the Miss River.

14. Re: why [1]
Because I get posts from other lists, the inbox gets an easy hundred posts a day, can't sort 'em unless [R-Rats] is in the subject line. Well, if I were smarter at computing maybe I could but this is how us cyberblondes do it. Other lists almost all have brackets with their names inside, in each post's subject line. Anything else is personal or an ad. I dunno, I guess that's typical...? Clem -----Original Message----- From: me To: Clementine Carey ; RiverRats-
15. [RiverRats] Corps of Engineers [1]
"Ancient and Honorable Order of River Rats" issued (?) by the United States Engineer District, New Orleans Corps of Engineers - I recently received a card and certificate that had belonged to my father. He died in 1986. He had retired from the Corps in the early 60's with over 40 years service. Can anyone tell me about this "Honorable" order - his statis was an Official Floating Plant Foreman.
16. Re: the list--Listowner [1]
Hm. This is a little misleading. I'm carey@hazleton.net, but I didn't write that. I'd guess Elva did. Who's Elva? Probably the list owner? Well I sure don't want to be! I never touched a pc until December 27, 1999. Natural cyberblonde here. No idea why a list needs an owner! Besides, I'm a boomer. Got kids AND elders to care for, AND an inborn fear of responsibility. Clem -----Original Message----- From: Kiezza@aol.com To: RiverRats-L@rootsweb.com Date: Tuesd

19. Re: the list [1]
Hi all, thanks for replies...So, who's the list owner? Is it an orphan? How come we don't have [R-Rats] automatically in the subject line? Just to get the truly dumb questions out of the way! I have others! clem

21. The Lacey, Steamboat [1]
Does anyone have sites for old River Transportation files, or registers of steamboats? I'm looking for information on Jacob Lacey/Lacy who may have owned and operated a River Boat before the Civil War. He may have been based in Knoxville Tn. As you can see, I'm shooting in the dark so anything might help me. Thanks Freddie
