Henry Casey

Henry Casey is one of the family of nine children of William and Katharine (Kelly) Casey, natives of Ireland, who emigrated to this country in the early 'sixties and settled at Brockville, Ontario, later removing to Burlington, Vermont.

Henry Casey was born at Brockville, July 12, 1866. He attended school there and also later on at Burlington, continuing at school until 1879, when he began work at steam boating with the Anchor line. In this service he has been continuously since, and the fact that he has been retained so long speaks as well for his steadiness as for his efficiency. His first berth was as watchman for the seasons of 1879-80 on the Delaware, following with two seasons each on the Clarion and Juniata and one on the Wissahickon, in the same capacity. In 1886 he was promoted to second mate's berth, and served in that capacity on the Conestoga for three seasons and on the Codorus one season, in the following season, 1890, becoming mate of her. He was next mate of the Juniata for two seasons, and then went into the Conestoga again, under Captain Cronkhait, having remained on this boat ever since, including the season of 1897. Mr. Casey has had the usual experience of steamboat men. He is a member of Local Harbor No. 41, American Association of Masters and Pilots. He makes his home in Buffalo, N.Y., and is unmarried.

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.
