Notes:
The Old Colony steamboat Priscilla, the latest addition to the Sound fleet was brought into service in 1894. The 426 ft. Priscilla was the largest side wheeler (with water wheels and feathering buckets, double-inclined compount engine, 95-inch cylinders and 11 ft. stoke), with Captain A.G. Simmons in command a veteran of the coastal service. The Priscilla carried 1500 passengers and was often booked to capacity with prompt service between New York, Newport, Fall River and Boston. She was fitted with the finest equipment and fine cuisine that would satisfy her prosperous clientele; she would become one of the matriarchs of the Fall River Line, she was broken up in 1937.
