Riverboat Captain Suffers Painful Injury in 1921


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 3/10/1921.

Capt. J.C. Williams, of the Steamer Violet, the Creston mail-boat, met with severe and painful injuries Sunday which put him on the retired list temporarily.  He was attempting to start up the engine at the Grantsville Mill and in some manner caught his left hand in such a manner as to mangle and bruise it severely.  The injured member is getting along very nicely and it will only be a few days until Capt. Williams is able to go back to work.
