Default Want info on Steamboat "Ohio"

I recently purchased a mid-19th C. mirror with a reverse painting of a steamboat on the top section. The name painted on the boat is "OHIO" and I am trying to find out more about this steamboat.

Some of the paint on the steamboat is chipped, but fortunately not where the steamboat's name is..it clearly says "Ohio". The mirror's frame is a typical early to mid-19th C. design - a rectangle with turned wood half-spindles on all four sides and square block corners. It is divided with a reverse painted image (the steamboat) on the top section and a mirror in the bottom section. The wood frame is beautifully faux-painted with the original painted birds-eye maple design and is in fairly good shape.

I could only find a reference (on the internet) to a law suit between Alfred Stunt and the Steamboat "Ohio", recorded in Hamilton County Ohio, dated April 1855.

If anyone has any information on or about the steamboat "Ohio" they will share with me, I would very much appreciate it.
