Description
Full Text

      The steamboat ERIE connected the Maumee towns with Detroit, leaving Perrysburg on alternate days. In 1839 the O. NEWBERRY was added to this line to supply a daily service, both ships touching at Toledo, Manhattan, Monroe, Brest, Malden, and Gibraltar. The following year the ERIE was running between Detroit and Cleveland, touching at Toledo on the way up and down, and, with the MACOMB, was able to maintain a daily service between the Maumee and Detroit. The ERIE was reported to be one of the fastest boats coming into the river, and Captain Edwards, her master, was held as being "gentlemanly and accommodating to his passengers."
      (from article entitled "Navigation at the foot of the Maumee Rapids, 1815 - 1845 by Maurer Maurer, published in Morthwest Ohio Quarterly, July 1943, pp. 158-173)
