Here are a couple of circa 1910 photos of river baptisms with the sternwheel ferry LEON. The first photo, which must have an entire congregation aboard, was probably taken with the LEON shoved-in at Carrollton. The other photo shows Carrollton in the distance, and was taken exactly where the BARBARA H landing is today, at Lamb, Indiana.
The LEON came out in 1895, and was almost the first gasboat on the Ohio River, but the Turner Brothers of Madison came out with the gasboat/packet WHITE DOVE earlier that year.
Alan, the chicken coop in our backyard was made from the cabin on the LEON, and the RESOLUTE is currently stored in it.
