Tom,
There was a CAROLYN that towed the ferry at Lawrenceburg before 1917. It was a gasboat. It was later used as a small packet/towboat between Louisville and points on the Kentucky River.

I have this info, and a photo:

CAROLYN, gas boat, built at Madison, Ind., in 1907, owned in 1915 by Sam Woodford, Savannah, Tenn.

Vevay Newspaper Mid-August 1917:
"John C. Heady has been a business visitor to Louisville this week. While there he purchased the gasoline towboat CAROLYN which he will use to carry freight to and from Louisville."
