G. W. Cady

G.W. Cady, for several years a prominent and well-known marine man, of Chicago, who, since 1889, has been chief engineer of the Times-Herald building, was born in Jackson, Mich., in 1859, a son of J. H. and Sarah Cady. The father, who was a native of Pennsylvania, removed to Michigan at an early day and married, and there died. The mother located in that state in 1841, and is still a resident of Leslie, Michigan.

The schools of Jackson afforded our subject his educational privileges, but at the age of fourteen years he left his native state and went to Toledo, Ohio, where he commenced his lakefaring life in 1877 as fireman on harbor tugs. At that place he continued to engage in tugging and dredging until he began sailing out of Chicago in 1880 as engineer on the steamer Starrucca, engaged between that port and Buffalo in the freight trade. He remained with this boat one season, and later became engineer on harbor tugs for Van Delsen, being thus employed until he quit the lakes. During 1881 he made a trip from Toledo to Chicago on a dredging machine. As stationary engineer he had charge of an electric light plant one year, but for the past nine years has been chief engineer at the Times-Herald building, having previously been employed at the old Times building. He received his first engineer's license in 1880, and since 1889 has been a member of the Stationary Engineers Association No. 1, of Chicago.

In 1882, in Chicago, he was married to Miss Laura Haney, a daughter of Benjamin Haney, who was a member of an Iowa regiment during the Civil War and who lost his life while serving his country. Mr. and Mrs. Cady have a family of four children: Bertha, George, Hazel and Walter.

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.
