Service History

"The DCA 6/20/1896 reported on the "(r)emains of the old propeller Ottawa" found ashore 2 miles south of Ahnapee. Said propeller formerly belonged to the Goodrich Line and commanded by N.W.Kirtland. Then, (also per the DCA), she was sold in the fall of 1868 and destroyed by fire a year or two later. A search of DCA 1/1869 - 12/1870 revealed no reports of the Ottawa being burned, wrecked, etc. The Runge Collection lists two possible Ottawas. The one built in 1854 was dismantled and made into a barge in 1871, listed out of comission in 1870-74, and not listed at all in 1875."
