KATE ADAMS aground

 This picture of the KATE belongs to Ed Provine who graciously allowed me to copy.  Way’s Packet Directory 1848-1983 recorded the following “On  June 29, 1917, the KATE was stranded at Helena Ark., on a falling river and remained high and dry until refloated by the John Eichleay Jr. Co., Pittsburg – this on Oct. 12, 1918.”  In 1923 the name of the Line she ran under was changed to the Delta Line.  In January 1924, Delta Line and the Lee Line consolidated becoming the Valley Line.  Capt. Hicks as President.  Peters Lee as manager.
