Default Stern Wheeler "Plumas" found

Hi,

The stern wheeler"Plumas" has been located. She was snagged in 1858 after a run to Tehama on the Upper Sacramento. She was small ship at about 50 tons. The location is east of Corning Ca. on the 1850 river channel in an area completely filled with ticks.

The Upper Sacramento claimed 2 early riverboats , the other being the "California". I have also found this boat in Butte County west of Chico Ca.

Does anyone know anything of "Plumas"?


Many thanks!
Dave Freeman
