Frank J. Carloss

Frank J. Carloss, a lake pilot of much knowledge and skill in handling vessels, was born at Alexandria Bay, N. Y., October 25, 1860. He received his education in the public schools of his native place, and at the age of seventeen years he went on a farm, where he was employed for several years.

Becoming ambitious for the life of a sailor, Mr. Carloss went to Cleveland and shipped on the tug Annie Dobbins: as wheelsman, having had some experience with boats while a school boy. He served two seasons on the Dobbins, and in 1882 he went to Cleveland, and in the spring shipped as wheelsman with Captain Morley on the steamer Fairbanks, remaining four months, and closing that season and the next two on the steamer Colonial in the same capacity. He then went in the steamer Iron Duke, remaining but two months, and closing the season on the Egyptian. His next berth was on the old steamer Republic, of the Republic Iron Company, remaining in that employ one season. He then stopped ashore, and went to railroading on the Detroit street line. In the fall of 1890 he shipped as wheelsman on the steel steamer Republic till the close of the season. In the following season he held the berth of wheelsman on the steamer St. Louis. In 1892 he was appointed second mate of the Fedora, remaining throughout the season, followed by a season on the steamer Lansing, as second mate the next season on the Colonial. In 1886 he shipped as wheelsman on the Robert Wallace, finishing the season as first mate.

On July 20, 1887, Mr. Carloss was united in marriage to Miss Lillie Burr, of Painesville, Ohio.

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.
