The Edna G. last ran in 1981, the Chief Wawatam in 1984, so the title of last "hand-bomber" goes to the Chief (though the Edna G. did get the distinction of being the last active steam tug on the Lakes). The original question was what was the last hand-fired freighter though, and neither of these were freighters.
