DEATH OF CAPTAIN PAUL PELKEY. - There are many who will learn with surprise and regret that Paul Pelkey is dead. For many years he was known as a prominent steamboat captain and an experienced pilot to the Lake Superior region. He passed this port but a short time since, and his death must have been quite sudden and unexpected.

(Detroit Free Press, Aug 27, 1872
CORRECTION. - Capt. Paul Pelkey objects to reading his obituary notice in all the papers along the lakes and wishes to inform us that he is still on deck. The notice of his death first appeared in the Chicago papers, and we are very glad to be able to make this correction.)
