formerly the Harry #2 I once rebuilt her.

The new Steamer Crescent went up the first trip Steele all
around formerly the Cruiser 1 which was built by the Pittsburgh Coal
Company and under my direction I drafted her hull and she was the last

The items from the CRUISER that went over to this CRESCENT are the
whistle and other equipment, according to Way's Steam Towboat Directory.
