      " The last prominent builder during the heyday of the wooden shipbuilding era in Cleveland was Roderick Caulkins. His yard was on Whiskey Island, facing the Old River Bed, very near the junction with the main river. Apparently his first vessel was the propeller ONEIDA, in 1846."
      from " A History of Ship Building Along
      Ohio's Northern Shore"
      by Richard J. Wright. Masters Thesis
     
NOTE: No Propeller CROTON, launched in 1846, could be found. However it is apparent that her name was changed to ONEIDA, before going into operation (Capt. Sprague being the main thread), some differences seem to appear in the extracts above, as to her actual builder ??
