"The defuncet steamer JOHN SHERMAN, owned by Mr. Clark, is being altered into a tow barge, and will probably be towed by the propeller ONTONAGON.
      Detroit Post & Tribune
      Sunday, February 9, 1879


      The barge JOHN SHERMAN is now at Toledo. She was originally the United States revenue cutter JOHN SHERMAN. The SHERMAN was a sidewheeler, and one of the fastest boats on the chain of lakes. She ran on the Saginaw and Alpena route and was finally converted into a tow-barge.
