The side-Wheeler, W. W .Neff, used as a rafting steamer in the Oshkosh & Wolf-Fox river system of Wis., was built by W.W.Neff, the son of Orren Neff, Oshkosh, and brother of the boatmen, Capt. Sam Neff and Edwin Marion Neff. The vessel was used during the lumbering days in Wisconsin. W. W. Neff ( 1839-1902) wrote a series of articles on early day boats which may be seen in the Oshkosh Public Library. A painting of the boat hangs in the Oshkosh Museum. See Neff History book; also files of the Oshkosh Northwestern newspaper. The boat ran from 1879 to 1890. Her engine and boiler came from the old Neff boat, I.X.L.
