A. Collier

 

Allen Collier—a stern wheel steamer built at Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1864 and purchased by the Navy on 7 December of that year—was renamed simply Collier (q.v.) sometime early in her naval career. Nevertheless, Navy records occasionally continued to refer to the ship thereafter by her original name, Allen Collier and more frequently by a name, which she never carried officially, A. Collier.
