Default The Columbia

Hello everyone. Iíve found some tickets for the Steamer Columbia. Iím in Louisville, the shop I bought them from said they came from the Howard Museum. My question is, could they have come from the same boat that wrecked near Peoria? From what Iíve found it seems that boat was launched in 1897. These tickets are from 1898, so the timing works out. But I everything Iíve found about the Columbia places her in the Illinois river, is it possible she was all the way up the Ohio in Jeffersonville? Or was there another Columbia active at the same time?
