    Default IWC/UMBL towboats continued....

    The third boat was the JOHN W. WEEKS. She was sold in 1948 to American Rolling Mill co. and renamed the WEBER W. SEBALD. Pix 1 shows her after the Texas/pilothouse alterations.
    The fourth boat was the GENERAL ASHBURN, named after Maj. Gen. Thomas Ashburn. She was sold to Ohio & Kanawha Transportation Co. (later Hatfield-Campbells Creek Coal Co.) in 1941. In 1945 she was renamed J.T. HATFIELD. She was sold in 1957 to Armco Steel and renamed CHARLES R. HOOK. Pix 2 shows the GENERAL ASHBURN in 1938 with the sunken S.S. THORPE in Minneapolis.
    Pix 3 is a repeat of the S.S. THORPE to complete the boat family in this thread.
