About Russell & Mason

The firm Russell & Mason, owned by William F. Russell and Charles H. Mason, bought the steamboat Twilight from the heirs of Captain Henry Crawford in 1890. Twilight was one of several steamers making a regular run on the Delaware River between Trenton and Philadelphia in the last decades of the nineteenth century. Twilight struck a rock near Perriwig Bar in the Delaware River and sank in 1901.
