Default When did natural gas/propane come to steamboats?

My question is not as odd as it sounds. I have a chandelier that several in my
family swore came off the Robert E. Lee (yes the one in the race)Problem is that they have all passed now that I am interested in finding out more about the
history of it. It started off as a gas light chandelier and then was converted
to electricity. I conversed with several folks on an antique forum about its
"maybe" history and they all said that steamboats of that era did not have
natural gas/propane/LNG or any thing like that. So all lights on a steamboat of
that era were oil? Any thoughts would be great. Also, is it possible to post a
picture on here and how. Thanks, Ed
