Daniel L. Cartwright

Having a father who has sailed the lakes for many years, and who is still sailing, Daniel L. Cartwright, of Algonac, Mich., comes naturally by his predilection for the water. He was born at Algonac, July 6, 1865, and passed his boyhood in his native place, attending the public schools and acquiring a good common-school education. At the age of eighteen he shipped on the schooner Sweepstakes, and the following year, 1884, was promoted to the position of mate on the schooner Wyandotte. In 1885 he was watchman aboard the new steambarge, Thomas S. Christie, and in 1886 and 1887 was wheelsman on the steamer Ira Chaffee, of Detroit.

During the next season he was wheelsman and mate of the tug Daniel L. Hebard, engaged in towing rafts on Lake Superior. In 1889 he returned to the Ira Chaffee as mate, sailing from the straits of Mackinaw to Ohio ports in the coal and lumber trade. This steamer was burned the following year, and in 1890 Mr. Cartwright was mate of the tug Morse on Lake Superior. In the fall of that year he shipped as mate of the steamer Lowell, engaged in the lumber trade, and remained with her during the seasons of 1891 and 1892. He was mate of the steamer Wyoming, of Au Sable, in 1893, and in 1894 was master of the schooner Dashing Wave, of Port Huron. In 1895 he was first mate of the steamer Robert L. Fryer, which boat was in a collision with the Corsica in the Sault Ste. Marie river during that season, and in 1896 he acted as first mate of the steamer Onoko. In 1897 he became master of the schooner Sophia Minch, of Cleveland, and in 1898 master of the schooner Aberdeen, of the Minch Transit Company. Capt. Cartwright's experience has been varied and extensive, and his love for the water, coupled with his thorough, practical knowledge of his work merits and wins the confidence of his employers.

Volume I

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.
