Horace Johnson / Joshua A. Hatfield

A photo containing two Mystery Ships was posted on February 9, 2008. An anonymous visitor correctly identified the ship on the left as the Horace Johnson. The ship on the right, which remained unknown for over a year, is Joshua A. Hatfield. As Mike M. correctly surmised, both belong to the Pittsburgh Steamship Company. Jim added that perhaps the ship with the lesser amount of smoke is damaged and the other ship was rafted to it so it could provide power and rudder. Jim went on to say that this was an uncommon arrangement but he had heard old-timers mention it when telling their stories. Please click here to read about the Horace Johnson and Joshua A. Hatfield as well as the interesting comments made regarding these two former Mystery Ships.
