A big clue! Crucible, PA Ferry Boat, Nekoda.
This picture of me looking at mud in the Pumpkin Run creek inlet to the Monongahela river is a huge clue to the Crucible Ferry mystery."Why?"you ask...
I thought the first time the pool on the Mon was lovered was following the 1985 flood.This would have meant the pics of the ferry on the shore (during low pool)proved it wasn't swept away in the flood.But the pool was lowered in 1982,also.To remove a barge from Maxwell lock.
I was 17 in 1985,and clearly younger that that in this pic.So this pic,as well as the ferry pics were from 1982.So the 1985 flood did wash the Nekoda north toward the mine.
