The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Edith (Propeller), 24 Mar 1871

Full Text

      The barge EDITH, which has recently been converted from the propeller of that name to a propeller barge, is lying at Algonac, and bids fair for a long extension of service. Originally she came out in 1852, and was built by F.N. Jones, at Buffalo. She was a well built vessel, and no craft has ever performed better or more faithful service. A year ago she was retired, but as stated above, the past winter has been made as good as new, and capable of doing several years more service. Capt. Dana is owner and master. The EDITH has good power, having 2 engines, and will freight lumber this season and tow barges. - Detroit Free Press
