Tecumseh (Propeller), 1 Mar 1880
- Full Text
Captain Henry Sloan and Mr. Henry Howard, of this city, paid $19,000 cash for the Canadian steambarge TECUMSEH on Monday last. Many buyers were put off the track by reports of the sale three weeks ago at $20,000.
The steambarge TECUMSEH will run this season between Chicago and Collingwood. Captain John Sloan will command her. She was formerly owned by the Gulph Lumber Company, of Toronto, but is now the property of Captain Sloan and Henry Howard and A.N. Moffat, of Port Huron, all Americans.

The steamer TECUMSEH is liable to a tonnage tax for 163 for towing the American bage KEATING from Sarnia to Chicago. The TECUMSEH usually tows two barges. And she is regularly in the barge towing business. No one seems to know, even now, whether the TECUMSEH is a British craft or an American craft. If Americans have bought her, she certainly has no British register, and if she is still owned in Canada she can't possibly have an American Register.
