Default William Westerfield, riverboat capt.?

My third great grandfather, William Westerfield, was born in Kentucky. He was supposed to be a capt. on a riverboat, however, we all know how things can be inflated over years. He married Elizabeth Caroline Wood, from Mobile, AL and they lived in Helena, AR. He lived from 1810/1820 until Sept., 1848. Elizabeth lived many years and related to her grandson, Lew Westerfield that William's family lived in Kentucky and that they went to visit them by going up the Mississippi. It seems that Helena, AR is half way between Mobile and Kentucky. I've been to the museum in Helena and there are no records.

Is there any way to find out if he did work on the river and in what capacity? Any help will be greatly appreciated. By the way, is nothing less than fasinating!!
