On July 17, 1886 a man by the name of JOHN MORRIS who was fireman on a riverboat, may have been a steamboat----drowned that day--I assume in the river.
John Morris lived in Clarington, Salem Township of Monroe County OH.Sometimes Morris was spelled Marsh when I found him in the census, but his death listing in the Monroe Co deaths give it as MORRIS
I don't know if Clarington had a newspaper during that time period or not, but do know that the Spirit of Democracy was published then.
I am hoping there will be an article about this drowning or perhaps an obit.
Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you again.
