Default Steam Engine question

I am writing a short story set on a sternwheeler in the James River in 1856 and I wonder if you could offer me some technical advice to this question: would it be fairly typical, or at least not uncommon for a Sternwheel Riverboat of that era on that river to have an oscillating engine?

I thank you in advance for any help you can give me!
