Does anyone know the name Jepson, associated with all-wood canoes in the Boston-area? Any info, leads appreciated. Would love to discuss.

There was a Jepson decked sailing canoe on Ebay a few years back (didn' sell). It belongs to a Cincinatti collector.

I haven't found any other reference to Jepson yet, but I'm still looking... Clearly, based on the canoe, he new what he was about and did nice work. Features of the canoe suggest 1890s to 1910 or so.
