Copies of two of Jacob Poe’s Master Licenses show the range of his accomplishments. From his conquest of the Allegheny River to Olean, NY in 1837 at age 24 years to his Masters Certificate dated 1 Dec 1890 at age 77 years, his life was stunning in a thousand different ways.
The original licenses are part of the collection of the Wellsville Ohio River Museum. The post “Ohio River Museum Donation” explains how the Jacob Poe licenses were discovered.
