"Gurley Line", Windsor Public Ledger, 8 May 1889

The PIERREPONT began operating on the Cashie River in May 1889. It ran a route similar to the LUCY, except that it connected directly to Norfolk, Virginia through the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal. The Gurley Line felt that its advantage lay in direct service between Windsor and Norfolk eliminating the frequent loading and unloading of freight.
