John H. Dialogue Shipyard
Camden, NJ

USRC Colfax was built at the Dialogue Shipyard in 1871. I don’t recall the year, but the Colfax was lengthened and refurbished at Pusey, Jones & Co. in Wilmington, DE some years later. The Colfax was in the 1988 Marine Parade in Wilmington, NC. There is a good picture of the Colfax at the Pusey, Jones & Co. wharf.

The Governor Safford was built by Dialogue but apparently, her machinery was built by Pusey, Jones & Company. There is a good image of the Gov. Safford at the Pusey, Jones & Co. wharf.
