My 2nd Great Uncle from Memphis was a well known Steamer pilot in the late 1800s. His last job was Master Lighthouse Tender of the Joseph Henry in 1896, the year he also died. Is there any record of pilots aboard this steamer or any other information related to some of the Captains of this era. He was also a pilot on many other Steamers of this period. His name was Captain James Cook Hoyle. Thank you.
