"William Peacock" Accident- 9/16/1830

I'm looking for information regarding the "Peacock" boiler explosion after departure from Buffalo, NY.

My ancestor died of his scalding from a steamship boiler explosion. This seems to be the only ship boiler explosion (and apparently the first on Lake Erie) during the 1828-30 period I'm looking into. He survived three weeks and supposedly made it to his destination which was Lawrenceburg, Indiana. He was coming from Schenectady, NY.

Any ideas where I might obtain this information?

Anyone know of any other ship explosions to occur during this period?
