Steamboat Macomb

1839: Detroit, Monroe, Toledo, Maumee City, and Perrysburgh. 

The new and elegant Steamboat Macomb, Ira Davis, Master, will run the ensuing season between Detroit and Maumee, touching at the intermediate ports, as follows, viz: Leaves Detroit for Monroe and Maumee every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning, at 8 o'clock A. M. Leaves Maumee for Detroit every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning, at 7 o'clock A. M. The Macomb has the past winter undergone thorough repairs. Her engine has been much improved, which with an addition of a splendid Gentlemen's Cabin (large and airy) on her hurricane deck, together with other improvements calculated for the convenience of passengers, will render her accommodations far superior to any boat of the same tonage on Lake Erie. For freight or passage apply to the Captain on board, or to


FORSYTH & MACK, Maumee City

Hollister & Co., Perrysburgh

Slocum, Gibraltar 82
