I'm trying to find information, picture, etc.of the Steamer James Laughlin, which was part of the Interstate Steamship fleet. I have my grandfathers Lake Carriers Association card from 1909. It's stamped Aug 2, 1909 .shipping office Duluth, and it was lying at the Allony ? Ore Dock. Shipping Master J H Currin.
His seaman's card is dated Sept 4, 1909, issued at Ashtabula, Ohio office., shipping master Eli Collister.
I understand that the ship and company are long gone., but hoping someone has information.
