Biography/HistoryThe Ida Reese was the second steamboat of that name originally owned by Thomas M. and James Rees of Pittsburgh. In the spring of 1869, the boat was lengthened by 20 feet (original dimensions 180 x 30), and left for Fort Benton, Mont. under Captain Thompson. She was sold to Durfee & Peck, and continued to run on the Missouri River. The Ida Reese sank and was lost near the mouth of the White river, 23 miles below Chamberlain S.D. on June 20, 1871.
