Thanks for the memories. I worked for West Memphis Towing Co. on the Defender and the Lady Mignon. Seems like the dates were from 1968 - 1971. Markham & Brown was the primary company that West Memphis towing was a subsidiary. Man it was a long time ago. The dates could be off by a year.

I have some items that belong to my grandfather, J.B. Chauvin, a steam and diesel towboat captain from the 1930's thru the 1950's that I would like to donate to a towboat museum. Would you recommend someplace that would be interested in a balsa wood model christened in his name as well as his river charts , photos, and related news articles about him? I located his namesake in your photo gallery today and decided that it's time for these items to be shared with the pulic....Sincerely, Jamie White

I spied the Cimmaron this morning, 24 August 2020 tied on the shore on the Cumberland river at Clarksville, TN. I imagine the dark and thick fog required berthing overnight.

Was searching for something the other day and ran across the towboat named after my brother. The Brian P. O'Daniels -- Florida Marine. Would love to get a pdf to save in our River History folder for our family. I did order a coffee cup because I think it would make a great b-day gift for him coming up!

Thinking about family and Oscar Walters came up. Just looked at pictures of the tug named after him. The Walters were close when I was young. Oscar worked for my next door neighbors son. Everett Odom. My mom painted a picture of the tug. Don’t know who has it. I would love to get a picture of the tug. Loved Oscar.92748
