Henry Hinslea

Henry Hinslea, the popular and tested mate of the steamer Joliet, was born in Cleveland in 1872, and is the son of Capt. Charles Hinslea, a well-known lake navigator.

Mr. Hinslea attended the public schools of Cleveland, and commended sailing in 1887 as watchman of the steamer Specular. He then went before the mast on the schooner Magnetic, becoming second mate of the same vessel the following season, after which he put in two seasons as wheelsman on the propeller Marquette, and then, having secured pilot's papers, became second mate of the same boat. His next position was that of second mate, on board the Continental, and during the same season served as mate on the George Spencer, later being given the same berth on the Specular, which he held till his transfer to the steamer Joliet.

In 1890 Mr. Hinslea was married to Miss Laura Cummings, of Cleveland, and they have two children, Leo and Alpharetta.

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.
