Captain George Moulton
Captain George Moulton, of the Toronto Ferry Company's steamer Mayflower, had a long and varied experience on the Great Lakes. Born in St. Catharines, in 1842, he has resided chiefly in Port Credit and Oakville, the latter place being his present home and winter headquarters. The Captain first took to sailing in 1857, when he joined the crew of the Resolute, a schooner plying between Toronto and Wilson, N. Y. Subsequently he was on the schooners Eliza Wilson and the Champion, of Oakville, and mate on the schooner Forest Queen, afterward becoming captain of the schooner Paragon, engaged in the Ashtabula coal trade. During fourteen of the forty years in which he has been sailing the Great Lakes, Captain Moulton has been in the service of the Toronto Ferry Company.

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.
