Steer Creek to Get Riverboat in 1911


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 4/18/1911.

Uncle "Vess" Stump, one of the pioneer citizens of the Steer Creek Valley, and a highly respected gentleman was in town several days last week.  He is having a gasolene boat built by Roy Stump, which he will have great use for in the trade from here to Stumptown and other up river points.

(Note:  This vessel would be the "Paul S" built by Sylvester Stump and named for Paul Stump. - Norma Knotts Shaffer)
