I worked for Fer River Towing on the MV Mr Paul and MV Mr Joey from 1980,81 and 82. Finding this site has really brought back some good memories. Thank you for Sharing!

Served aboard the m/v W. V. Keeley, in 1951, with Capt. Danna Young, upon the Kanawha River. I had been clerking for Moore's Hardware, Guyandotte, WV, when Danna sold me on the idea of shipping out with him. Don't recall any details. Didn't stay long. Need a good 8x10 photo, for my history album. Thanks.

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
