Daniel Conway

Daniel Conway was born in 1847, in Boston, Mass., and attended school in that city until sixteen years of age, when he enlisted in Company A, Ninth New York Heavy Artillery, serving three years with that command. He re-enlisted as a sharpshooter and served nine months. Mr. Conway participated in all the battles of the Potomac army from the Wilderness to Appomatox. After the close of the war he went to school one year, and then commenced work in the Vulcan Iron Works, at Oswego, N.Y., where he remained over a year. His first experience as an engineer was in setting up and running stationary engines, and he was subsequently engaged in tugging for the firms of Smith & Post and Mastin & Murphy. He then went to Kingston, Ontario, to run the new tug Lady Franklin, remaining there until the fall of 1872. In 1873 Mr. Conway came to Cleveland and secured an appointment on the river tug Samson, and the following season he received the appointment with the Bradley line, with which he continued for thirteen years. He was engineer on the Selah Chamberlin when she was lost in collision with the John Pridgeon on Lake Michigan off Sheboygan; in this accident there were five lives sacrificed, the balance of the crew reaching the shore in the yawl-boat. Captain Greenlee was in command of the Chamberlin at the time of the accident. Mr. Conway numbers among his best boats the Corona, Raleigh, Cormorant, Smith Moore, Pickands and others of like class.

Mr. Conway belongs to Stedman Post, G.A.R. and is active in working for the interests of the old soldiers. In 1871 he was united in marriage to Miss Minerva White, at Oswego, New York, and they reside in Cleveland.

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.
