"One of those first boats that ran along Little river was te ‘Glenville" owned by my father in 1866; it was brought down from the Ohio river to Memphis."
"One of the first boats that my father owned was the ‘Daniel B. Miller,' an old side-wheel boat that was sunk by Saul Kitchens' Northern Regiment during the Civil war at where Potter's Bridge now stands or near-abouts. The reason why my father came to own the boat he had known Saul Kitchens up in Southeast Missouri on his boat runs and when the war broke out Kitchens ran the ‘Daniel B. Miller, a Confederate boat down near Lepanto and sank it; after the war, when he saw my father he told him he could have the boat. But father never touched it and for years loggers would try to dodge the boilers in the river, until they were later removed.
Some of the boats that ran during those early years were the "Advance" that run from Helena to Hornersville in 1878. Tom Young owned by Captain Young and piloted by Captain Daugherty in 1879 and the ‘Dick Jones' owned bEli Doc Bullinger, it was rigged to run with four horses like a sorghum mill, came down the river with a load of corn in the late ‘70s'; the Dick Fulton run in 1876 by captain Ross; this boat was rigged to pump by levers like a handcar. Other boats that my father piloted were the ‘Modock,' "Ike" and the ‘Edwin' that my father bought from Captain Marshall. The ‘Edwin' was first named the "John W. Peters."
The venerable old man is rich in tales of the plentiful fish and hunting paradise of those days. And at one time he helped the first U.S. Game Warden Captain Vaughn in the protection of wild game when the game laws began to be enforced.
Mr. Daugherty lives his time now visiting among his eight children, (three are dead) which includes Floyd Daugherty of near Rivervale; and the other children are Mrs. Ethel Linney of Floodway, Mrs. Myrtle Allred of Keiser, Ike Daugherty of Markwan, MO., Mrs. Alice Starnes of Skieston, MO. , and Mrs. Elsie Fisher of Wynne, Mrs. Marie LaFolletee, Truman, Mrs. Bonita Shaughnessy and E.J. Daugherty both of St. Louis, Missouri.
He was married the first time to Arilda Girdley of Indiana, and the second time to Beulah Turner Smith of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. His first wife died in 1938 and his second wife in 1944.
