Description
Full Text

The first vessel built on the Saginaw River, was constructed near Wright's mill at Saginaw City, in 1846, and was gotten up by a Frenchman for Nelson Smith. The craft was of about 70 tons burden, and when loaded drew only 4 1/2 ft. of water. The boat was named the JULIA SMITH, and when she commenced making trips in 1847, was commanded by Capt. Lock, who superintended her construction. The JULIA plied between Saginaw and Detroit for about 3 years, when she left for another route. - Bay City Chronicle.
