Brooks Hawley notes: Dredge #3 had three owners: Sumpter Valley Dredging Co., Baker Dredging Co., and Powder River Dredging Co. It was active 1935-1954 with two and one half years shut down during WWII.
The main machinery in Dredge #1 (1913-1924) was used again in this dredge. Dredge #2 (1915-1923) worked up Cracker Creek toward Bourne.
