On January 2, 1955, Captain Robert Hanna  made the following entry in his diary. 

 “Since I stared to work on the Mon River on the old sternwheeler “Vesta” the following is a list of boats I remember seeing in the Pittsburgh district. A few were inactive at the time I started, I will list what I can alphabetically regardless of age.”  R. R. Hanna
