Service History


"The Oshkosh was originally built as the R.C. Evans as a sidewheel steamer. In 1859, she was sold to Rich and Company in Horicon, where upper works and a cabin were placed on her. Thus converted to a passenger boat, she was renamed the Shawano City. In 1863, she was sold to Abel Neff and Capt. Hank Johnson, who converted her into a growser tug, renamed her the Oshkosh, and used her to tow logs."
Final Voyage


The Oshkosh was apparently dismantled at Winneconne in, or shortly after late fall of 1871, and burned.
