City of Madison / Side-Wheeler Packet, built in 1882 at Madison, Indiana.
Owned by U. S. Mail Line Company, it ran from Cincinnati to Madison, Cincinnati to Louisville. Her end was singular. On June 16, 1894, she was returning from a special trip to Memphis, Tennessee, going straight through to Cincinnati.
Pilot watches were changed just below the shipyards at Madison, and a few moments later, at 4:15 a.m., she struck the Madison Dike and sank.
The pilot on watch, Wheeler Collier, was a native of Madison. So this boat, The City of Madison, built at Madison, was sunk at Madison by a Madison man.
