The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Eliza Williams (Tug), 26 Sep 1872

Full Text

The launching of the new tug boat ELIZA WILLIAMS took place at 5:00 yesterday afternoon at Bell's shipyard. She is a handsome boat, 72 ft. in length, 14 ft. beam and having powerful machinery. Being built with iron and wood covering, she will possess all the advantages claimed in boat building. She was built under the superintendency of Capt. G.D. Greenfield for W.W. Williams & Co., of Duluth, Minn., by our enterprising fellow townsman David Bell. It is believed she is one of the finest tugs ever launched in the harbor; and will prove a credit to Buffalo enterprise. She will leave this port in 10 or 12 days for Duluth. We wish success to the tug ELIZA WILLIAMS. The tug carries the stars and stripes and carries a Grant and Wilson flag.
