T. H. Candler

T.H. Candler was born in Detroit, Mich., February 17, 1863, and has always resided there. He is the son of Homer W. and Emma (Ellard) Candler, natives of England, the former of whom is a member of the firm of H. & J. Candler, who are well known as real-estate and vessel owners of Detroit. Mrs. Candler died Mary 14, 1890, in that city.

At the age of fifteen years Thomas Candler left school and entered the Detroit City Iron Works, where he spent five years learning and working at the machinist's trade. At the end of this time he shipped on the Chauncey Hulburt as second engineer and remained three seasons in that position, after which he spent the same length of time as chief engineer. The following season he acted as chief of the Manola, of the Minnesota line, and then was engaged for two years as foreman in the Eagle Iron Works, upon leaving which employ he went to Marquette and became foreman in the Lake Shore Iron Works for about thirteen months. He was next employed to superintend the building of the electric road between Negaunee and Ishpeming, and on his return to Detroit he took charge of the D. E. Rice machine shop for a time, following which he went on the steamer M. M. Drake as chief engineer. He served only part of a season, however, coming to the power house of the Detroit Railway Company, where he has since remained as assistant engineer.

On June 20, 1891, Mr. Candler was married to Miss Florence Bice, of Detroit, a daughter of James Bice, who during his lifetime was a marine engineer. Mr. and Mrs. Candler have had three children: Edith Ellard, born in September, 1892; Russell Gordon, born in January 1894; and Marjorie Bice, born in January, 1895. Mr. Candler is a member of the A. O. U. W. and the Engineers and Mechanics Club of Detroit, serving as secretary in the last named fraternity.

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.
