River Transportation on the Oconee River – Resource

River Transportation on the Oconee River by Scott Thompson

I had read some of Scott Thompson’s writings a few years ago, but was looking through this article and came across some new info for me which adds some depth and ties between boats and captains on the Cape Fear, Oconee and Ocmulgee rivers in North Carolina and Georgia.

If you are interested in any of the following, take a look at the above page for some additional info:

  • Steamer COLVILLE (Capt. Robert C. Henry)
  • Steamer LOUISA (the Louisa Steamboat Company – several Fayetteville & Wilmington, NC boatmen, and businessmen put their funds down here in 1891)
    • W. S. Cook
    • R. M. Nimocks
    • J.  D. Robeson
    • M. E. Robeson (Well, duh!  Martha E. Dorminy, Mattie, Jeff D. Robeson’s wife.)
    • W. A. Robeson
    • R. H. Tomlinson
