Captain Daniel Hendricks
Captain Daniel Hendricks, who died October 5, 1886, was master and owner of the Heather Bell for several years, and was well acquainted in marine circles. He was born in 1820, at Detroit, Mich., living there until he reached his twenty-third year, when he sailed out of that port. He afterward returned, however, and purchased a sawmill which he operated three years, at the end of that time removing to Chatham, Ontario, where he engaged in agricultural pursuits.
Captain Hendricks was married, in 1854, to Miss Monique Raymond, a young woman of French parentage and Canadian birth, and they became the parents of thirteen children, as follows: Jacob H., a marine engineer; Helen, who died in childhood; Charles, a carpenter now living at Duluth, Minn.; Olive, who married Charles Kellogg and resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Walter, who is a marine engineer, residing in Erie; Harriet, living in Winnipeg; Louisa, who married William McCubben and resides in Flint, Mich,; Alexander, and engineer, residing in Flint, Mich.; Mack, a resident of Duluth; George, who was a farmer all his life and died in October 1896; Daniel, who lives in Chatham, Ontario, engaged in farming; Monique, who was burned to death in 1892; and Hugh, who lives in Chatham and is still attending school.

Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
