Default Christopher "Chris" Young 1841-1897 Clerk/Captain

Christopher "Chris" Young was born about 1841 in Portsmouth, Scioto County, Ohio. He apparently was working as a steamboat clerk in the Belmont County, OH-Wheeling, WV area in the 1850's-1860's and married Mary Elizabeth Clark in Belmont County, OH in 1867. He appears in the 1870 census in Portsmouth, Scioto County, OH (didn't find him in 1880). He died 16April 1897 in Portsmouth, Scioto County, OH. He was listed as a river boat captain.

I am interested in his career on the river - what boats he was on and when. Also, when he became a captain.
