Does anybody have any information (or know where I can obtain information) on the Steamer Julia Dean?

From Way's Packet Directory I have the following:

Sternwheel packet, wooden hull, built at McKeesport, PA, 1850, 117
tons. 138.5' x 24' x 3.8'. Ran the Pittsburgh-Zanesville trade from
1850-1853. Built for N.W. and George Graham of N.W. Graham & Company,
Zanesville, OH. Her masters include Capts. Charles Galligher, Joseph
McVay, J.J. Binning, Henry S. Pierce and George Russell. Inasmuch as
two boats of this name were built in 1850, their careers have become
tangled. One of them was on the upper Mississippi 1855-1856, noticed
at St. Paul both years. The other (presumably this one) was lost in a
collision with the RAINBOW at Mount Vernon, IN, April 26, 1857, with
loss of 5 lives.

My 4th Great-grandfather, Lorenzo McDaniel, died aboard this vessel in the collision with the Rainbow. I'm seeking any other type of historical information or photos/sketches that anyone might have - especially regarding the collision.

Also, does anyone have any idea where the blueprints might be located (if they are still in existance)?

Best wishes!
