Default Chis G Young

A quick review of Way's Packet Directory,1848-1994 , by Capt Frederick Way, Jr indicated that Chris G Young was a clerk on five boats and a captain on the str Rainbow.

Streamer.. Build Year.. Position
Camelia 1863 Clerk
Mountain Belle 1869 Clerk
Paris C Brown 1878 Clerk
Phil Sheridan 1866 Clerk
Potomac 1865 Clerk
Rainbow 1879 Captain

The specifications of each packet and a brief history of its owners, officers, and accomplishments has been compiled by Capt Way. The book is in print and probably available at your local library.

Have fun.
