Robert Craig

Robert Craig was born March 17, 1849, at Sligo, Ireland, and at the age of seventeen years came to Stratford, Ont., where he lived until 1863 when he came to the United States.

In 1864 he enlisted in the army. He served in the Eleventh Michigan Cavalry, and was wounded December 16, 1865, at Marion, Va., and at the present time is drawing a pension from the government. In 1870 he returned to the lake region and began marine life, to which he has since devoted his time and attention, his first experience being on the tug Sampson, upon which he served two years as fireman, afterward serving in the same capacity, and for the same length of time on the J.W. Jenness. He then went to Windsor, Ont., and February 17, 1873, was married to Miss Elizabeth Cronin, of that place.

He entered the employ of the Grand Trunk railroad in the capacity of a car repairer, after which he was employed by the C.P. railroad two years as fireman. He then came to the Hope, of the Detroit, Belle Isle and Windsor Ferry Company, and soon afterward to the Victoria, of the same line, where he still remains in the capacity of second engineer.

To Mr. And Mrs. Craig six children have been born: Joseph, who is an iron worker in Detroit; Robert and Noble, who are in school; and William, David and Margaret. Robert Craig is one of the nine children born to Joseph and Margaret (Reid) Craig, natives of Ireland, the former of whom died May 9, 1871, and the latter is still living at Kinmundy, Illinois.

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.
