The name of the steamboat Charles F. "Richardson" reminded me of two other "Richardson" the Marcy and the Ellen of the West Kentucky Coal Company in Paducah, KY. As a young man I remember the "Marcy" sitting high and dry on the bank at the WKCC "barge plant. Also the Ellen was towing coal from Caseyville, KY.

P.S. The "Margaret" was a small "tugboat'" which managed their coal barge fleet.
