Elizabeth Herald November 4, 1887Copied from Elizabeth Herald November 4, 1887Local History In Bits.-----------------------------------------------------The first charter for a ferry at Elizabeth was granted by the Pennsylvania Legislature in the 1796, and it was owned and operated for many years by Major John Walker. A skiff for passengers and a shallow flat, pushed by long poles, for teams, sufficed to meet the wants of the place until about the year 1870, when an old steam ferryboat was bought by Theo. S. Tower and put on the trade by him and Daniel Sarver, who owned the franchise. The Boyd brothers and James McKown bought it soon after, and in 1873 built the fine ferryboat Sam Roberts, which is still running.
