Notes:
The sloop, Star of Oshkosh, about 70 x 18 feet, ran on Lake Winnebago; Wis. and the Wolf river in the 1850s. About 1857, Sam Neff, 15 years old, of Oshkosh, piloted the boat which carried lime, wood, brick, stone, lumber, staves; also carried equipment for the building trade - wheel barrows, shovels, lime boxes and canvas covers; had a gang plank, running lines and poles for shoving the boat in shallow water. The boat was owned by John Wilhaub (?), who also owned the Coquette (?). Oshkosh Public Library should have further information.
