mentions the LEE H.BROOKS only twice in his journal, both mentions are
very brief. The first mention is
when she is included in a list of boats that were docked during
that month. This boats next mention is on
when she is docked at the Elizabeth Marine Ways. These brief
mentions probably indicate that he did not personally work on this boat
while she was at the Elizabeth Marine Ways.
interest is that this boat was originally a Packet Boat built in 1890. The
LEE H.BROOKS was owned by
William Weigel from 1897 to 1900 running between Pittsburgh and Elizabeth,
PA. This time period coincides with the Weigel family involvement in
opening the Elizabeth Marine Ways and I have to assume this boat was at
these Marine Ways during this time period.
