Andrew Carter

Andrew Carter is another of those natives of Detroit who have identified themselves with the great interests daily floating past the city. He was born in Detroit December 22, 1862, a son of Andrew Carter, Sr., and his wife, Hannah McLaughlan. He served his time as a machinist in D. E. Rice's shops, and in the spring of 1884 began his connection with the lakes as oiler on the U. S. steamer Fessenden. The next season he shipped as second engineer on the steamer Keystone in the Lake Superior trade, and in 1886 he was second engineer of the steamer S. J. Macy, and in 1887 he held the position on the Manhattan. During the season of 1888 he held the position of second engineer on the Iron Age and the D. W. Rust, and that fall he concluded to try the grocery business in Detroit and stuck to it until the spring of 1889, when, finding it no [sic] to his liking, he sold out and returned to the water as second engineer of the Roumania. In 1890 he went to Buffalo and fitted out the John F. Eddy, and served as her chief until 1894, when he was transferred to the Charles Eddie. He ran her one season, and the spring of 1896 found him chief of the John F. Eddy again, which he ran until about the middle of the season, when he was selected to bring out the new Senator, of whose engines he has since been in charge. On June 20, 1893, in Adrian, Mich., Mr. Carter was married to Miss Mary Gotham, daughter of the late Capt. A. S. Gotham, and they have one daughter, Marjorie. He is a charter member of the A. O. H., No. 5, and also of the M. E. B. A., No. 87.

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.
