Moren family owned Advance Coal Company, which purchased this boat in
1882, and named her ADVANCE. This boat worked for Advance Coal
Company until sinking in December 1898. During repairs in 1899 she
was struck by lighting and burned. Descendants of John Moren have
identified him as being the man wearing the jacket on the main deck.
