This is a request for information about the steamer T. Whitney owned by George de Baptiste, Detroit entrepreneur and abolitionist. I have found some history on the Detroit Historical Society website (https://detroithistorical.org/learn/encyclopedia-of-detroit/debaptiste-george) but would love a photo of the ship, or information RE: what type of steamer it was, a lead to some ship that is in the same class, in fact any information about the vessel itself. Anyone know anything?
Greatly appreciated.
