*Steamboat wedding trip/Lady in question*
Steamboating colleagues:
Jim, now you've really got my curiosity up with me tingling all over RE: the family who "chartered the CINCINNATI." Let me see...ummm...errr...I have a couple of families I know in mind here but won't mention any names here. That was big money chartering the CINCINNATI back in those days converting it to present day dollar values. Yet, Cincinnati always has been a very big bucks town with fortunes in brewing, railroad, river, coal, oil, cothing/fabrics, printing, shipping, chemicals, soap, banking etc. I do remember that older lady who traveled on the DQ who was one of the Lamberts and an heiress of 'Lambert Parmaceuticals' manufacturers of LISTERINE. What a character she was! Cheers!
