Captain Angus McGregor
Our subject was born December 31, 1835, in East Port, Maine, and lived in that place until he was about ten years of age, when he went to Sidney, N. S., where he received an education from private instructors, not having the advantage of public schools as in his native place.
When his father built the brig Lady Young, he sailed her ten years along the coast between Newfoundland and West Indies, and lost her on Sable island. He went to Toronto at this time and spent three years on the Merchant Miller. Since that time he has acted as mate of the Typho, Ithaska, Cornan, Ellsworth, Cream City, and schooner Twin Sisters.
Captain McGregor was married to Miss Maria Davis, and in 1865, with her, he visited Russia, England, India, Australia and New Zealand, going on the ship Norman, which was in command of Capt. Kenneth Irkard, uncle of Mr. McGregor.

This version of Volume II is based, with permission, on the work of the great volunteers at the Marine Captains Biographies site. To them goes the credit for reorganizing the content into some coherent order. The biographies in the original volume are in essentially random order.
Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
