Default Account of Capt Adam Poe, Sr. River Experiences

I posted a wonderful account of the life and river experiences of Capt Adam Poe. Full of swash and buckle. The account was written by Adam Poe in 1887. It was printed in a serial form in the East Liverpool Crisis in 1889 or 1890. I have added a few comments, mainly dates highlighted in blue print, to add perspective. It is a wonderful read.

A copy of the Poe account is found in the Poe folder at the Beaver County Genealogy and History Center in Beaver Falls, PA.
