The MARK WINNETT was built in Brownsville, PA during 1881 and worked primarily in the Pittsburgh area until 1899 when she sank in Cincinnati.  Captain Robert Eberhart of Elizabeth, PA  is listed as being a watchman on this boat when the boat was moved from Pittsburgh to Cincinnati in 1899, this was probably one of his early jobs working on a riverboat.  This picture is from the collection of Captain Eberhart and the writing on the picture must indicate the name of the Captain of the boat in 1897 and an assumption could be that Eberhart was working on the boat in 1897.
