Telegraph and Texas Register, March 27, 1844, May 8, 1844, May 22, 1844; La Grange Intelligencer, April 4, 1844, May 2, 1844. The origin of the keelboat Edward Burleson and the fate of that known as the David Crockett is unknown. Possibly, the former was simply the latter renamed. The June 28, 1843 edition of the Telegraph and Texas Register reports on a keelboat "which has long been running between La Grange and the head of the Raft" and identifies it as the property of "Mr. J. Heald." His identity has not been established.
