Service History


"The steamer Nevada was built in 1882 at bay City, Mich. by William Crosthwaite for John Kelderhouse of Buffalo, N.Y. She was a frequent trader into Milwaukee, Wis. with coal in the 1880's and 1890's. In 1889 she was laid up at West Yard, Milwaukee for a month or two after a rebuild." "In June 1890, she lost her shoe and rudder and stranded on Plum or Pilot Island, Wis. and was released by the tugs Monarch and Favorite. She was towed into Manitowoc by the tug Arctic and steered by the Monarch. Repaired at Manitowoc." "The Nevada was an unlucky craft and it is doubtful if she ever made any money for her owners." Last Document Surrendered 11/22/1890
Final Voyage


"November 15,1890. The steamer Nevada sprung a leak Friday night. The steamer Manchester came alongside and towed her for two hours. The Nevada was dropped astern when there was ten feet of water in the hold, became unmanageable, and was abandoned by the Manchester at 3:00 Saturday morning. Her cargo of 1,040 tons of bituminous coal was "consigned to Reiss and Co., of Sheboygan, and shipped by the Columbus and Hocking Valley Coal Company, of Cleveland."
