Name: Cairo & Tiptonville Packet Company *No. 411 Ohio Levee, Telephone 154. Probably in Cairo, IL. Area: 1890, July - Oct., Cairo, Ill. to Tiptonville, Ky. Boats: 1890, EVANSVILLE Comments: This entry is prompted by an e-mail from site visitor Wintfred L. Smith I find no such company in my sources, however according to the advertisement Mr. Smith found, it appears that it existed. Way's Packet Directory tells us that in July of 1890 Capt. Cole Boren and others purchased the EVANSVILLE and ran her between Cairo and Tiptonville until November of that year when she was returned to the Green River. It is possible this company was formed by Capt. Boren and others to operate just this one boat. 1. Name: Caldwell, John E. of New Orleans Area:Miss. R. Boats: 1855, Dec.- 1856, GEM 3.
