This photo of the Steamer W.W. O'NEIL is from the S&D Reflector Magazine March 1982. The old Point Bridge is in the background.  The Steamer W. W. O'NEIL   Photo from S&D Reflector September 1980  Steamer W. W. O'NEIL on a postcard dated 1905

JW Lynch on the first page of his journals lists various jobs that he had before working at the Elizabeth Marine Ways.  In 1895 he writes that he cuts lumber that was used on the ONeil line of tow boats, including the W. W. O'NEIL.  
At the Elizabeth Marine Ways JW writes about the W. W. O'NEIL being in the boneyard across from the Ways and parts being scavenged for use on other boats,
May 17, 1913 is one mention of this occurring.

The photo below shows the W. W. O'NEIL at the Elizabeth Marine Ways early in the 1900s.  JW is not listed as being one of the men in this photo.  He may be in the photo but I can not tell.

This picture is from the collection of the Elizabeth Township Historical Society.  It shows the Steamer W.W. O'NEIL on the top yard at the Elizabeth Marine Ways, with her wheel off. The picture was taken circa 1900, based upon the history of the early boats at the Ways and the fact that W.W. O'NEIL is included in the picture.

The names on the back of the picture have many gaps and is difficult to follow because of the uneven lines the men were in. 
Comments are welcome.
