Default New to boards -- looking for info

Hi All!

I'm trying to locate some information on an ancestor of mine, and thought that you folks might be able to point me in the right direction.

This is from a family genealogy list: William I. Birthisel (a steamboat Captain on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, who died when his children were "all young")

I'm guessing that he was active between 1850 to 1880, but perhaps later.

Since I am totally unfamiliar with steamship/steamboat records, etc., I was hoping that some of you might know the most logical place that I could look first for the information. His first child was born in Gallopolis, Ohio in September 1876, so I'm guessing he might have been "based" out of there.

I know it's a long shot, but any info would be appreciated!! Thanks....

Rick Adkins
