NOTE: I have included this information regarding the steamboat, Isaac Scott, because Capt. J. G. Bagley who brought the steamer J. C. Stewart down from Wilmington, NC mentioned that he had been the engineer on the Isaac Scott back in 1852. When Capt. Bagley arrived in Hawkinsville, GA in December of 1886, I suppose that he would have passed the twenty-five year old wreckage of the Isaac Scott.
