My comparison of The Lytle-Holdcamper List and the BM Laughlin Book of steamers built at Pittsburgh from 1811-1904 is complete. Each steamer named by BM Laughlin was searched for in The Lytle-Holdcamper List. The comparison was conducted through the years 1811-1840 or, by another measure, after five-hundred-fifteen (515) steamboats. The comparison has been terminated because there were no differences found in either year 1839 or 1840. By my count, forty two (42) steamboats have been re-discovered. Those steamboats, not listed in The Lytle -Holdcamper List, can be found at The BM Laughlin Re -Discovered Steamboats.
