There have been 3 boats named KATE ADAMS but none of them fits into your time frame. There have been 6 LIBERTYs. One (#3451) was a sternwheel packet built in Wheeling, VA, in 1857. 261 tons, owned by Capt. Charles Booth and others and operated Wheeling-Parkersburg with occasional trips to Cincinnati. Sold in April 1862 to Mason City Coal Co and snagged at Twelve Pole Creek on Dec 27, 1862. So this might also not be your boat. The next LIBERTY listed in Fred Way Jr. Packet Directory was built in 1889. Way is listing boats starting in 1848. So I assume that the year 1862 must be wrong.
