Captain U. S. Cody

Captain U.S. Cody was born in Sombra township, Ont., in 1867, son of Patrick and Margaret (Coffee) Cody. His father, who is a well-educated man, is a native of Prince Edward Island; his mother was born at Ingersoll, Ont. U.S. Cody attended the public schools and graduated from the high school at Sarnia, Ont., and after completing his education came to the United States, entering the employ of M. Sicken, at Marine City, Mich., as bookkeeper at his lumberyard and coal dock. He continued there one year, and then went to Tawas, where for three years he was in the employ of Loud & Co., in the same capacity. In the spring of 1883 he opened his sailing career as man before the mast on the T.S. Fassett, on which barge he remained three years. In the spring of 1886 he shipped as wheelsman on the steamer James Fisk. In 1887 he was wheelsman and lookout alternately on the steamer Oceanica, finishing the season as lookout on the steamer Kershaw. In 1888 he sailed before the mast on the schooner M.C. Upper, and as lookout on the Northern Light, of which he was appointed second mate in the spring of 1889; he finished the season, however, as mate on the E.S. Pease. The next three years he sailed as second mate of the steamer Pasadena. In the spring of 1893 he entered the employ of the Cleveland & Buffalo Transit line, and was appointed mate of the passenger steamer State of New York, remaining in that employ until the fall of 1895, and giving universal satisfaction. In the spring of 1896 Captain Cody shipped as mate of the fine steamer Lewiston, owned by Mr. John Green, of Buffalo, which he sailed up to the close of navigation. The Captain has eight issues of first-class master's papers, covering the lakes from Cape Vincent to Duluth. He is a member of the American Association of Masters and Pilots.

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.
