Default Admiral Dewey

Does anyone know about this boat? There is some connection between her and my great grandfather, Victor Purdy, who lived in Lake Providence LA in the late 1800s.

Thank you for the information from Way's Packet Journal. The sternwheeler mentioned doesn't seem to be the right boat, since it was active on the upper Ohio and my family lived in Louisiana. According to the Wooldridge Steamboat List, there were two Admiral Deweys- one sternwheeler and one sidewheeler. I think I need information on the sidewheeler.
