1882 Scioto

Two excursion boats, the John Lomas, of Martin's Ferry, and the Scioto, of Wheeling collided on July 4, 1882. The Scioto had brought an excursion down from Wellsville, Ohio, in the early part of the day, and was on her return trip from a day-long trip to Moundsville, West Virginia, where visitors could tour the State Penitentiary and picnic on the grounds. Because of a misunderstanding in signals, the Scioto and Lomas collided in the middle of the river. The Scioto immediately sunk in about fifteen feet of water. The Lomas was slightly disabled but still able to render assistance. The Scioto was passing up from Wheeling to East Liverpool with about five hundred excursionists on board ~ the boat was permitted to carry only about 60 people. The excursion was sponsored by the Wellsville Cornet Band and the outing attracted numerous young people.
