Default Lebanon 1841

Alan,

Found that the Lebanon carried the mail to New Orleans in September of 1841 under contract with Strader, Thompson & Strader of Louisville. The year before she made several trips to New Orleans also carrying the mail. The vessel apparently was a sidewheeleer of 141 tons built in Brownsville in 1839.
Hope this helps.
