Daniel C. McIntyre
Daniel C. McIntyre, the well-known freight and district passenger agent for the Detroit and Cleveland Steam Navigation Company, at Cleveland, Ohio, was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1852, but when a child of five years was brought by his parents to America, locating first in London, Ont., and later in one of the suburbs of that city, where he received a fair education in the district schools. At the age of twenty-two he entered the employ of the Detroit and Cleveland Steam Navigation Company as watchman on one of their steamers, and was thus employed until appointed to a position in the general office of the line at Detroit. In 1884 he was appointed local freight agent at Detroit, and became general freight agent in 1887. Five years later Mr. McIntyre was also made district passenger agent, and shortly afterward was transferred to Cleveland, succeeding T.F. Neuman as general freight and district passenger agent. He has since had charge of the eastern terminal of the Detroit and Cleveland Steam Navigation Company, and is most capably and satisfactorily filling that responsible position.
In 1873, Mr. McIntyre was united in marriage to Miss Flora Ferguson, and they became the parents of six children, the eldest born in 1874, and the youngest in 1887. They are: Tena, Alexander, Duncan, George, Mary, and Flora Bell, all still living with the exception of Alexander, whose untimely death occurred in the summer of 1896, and was a severe blow to his family and many friends.
