In 1913, the Warren Mirror said: "An engine and boiler, intact, was unearthed recently, about 150 feet above the mouth of the Brokenstraw Creek in the Allegheny River, near Irvineton and which was surrounded with considerable mystery, which seemed to baffle possible solution, even by the old residents in that section. According to the plates which were of copper and stamped in raised letters, the outfit was made by the Washington Iron Works, Newburgh, N.Y. The year stamped on both parts of the fins was given as 1864. The discovery of the boiler and engine had furnished an interesting topic for conversation among the old-timers of that quiet little village. The question was how it came to find a watery grave near the mouth of the Brokenstraw."
