S. S. Creadon

S.S. Creadon was born November 21, 1865, at Cleveland, Ohio, and attended school until 1883. His first experience on the lakes was as assistant cook on the steamer Mary Jarecki, which went ashore in a heavy fog off Au Sable light; the crew were all saved, however. The next year Mr. Creadon went as steward on the Iron Duke, following this in 1885 by service in the same capacity on the iron tug Record, under Captain Bates. The Record was named in honor of the Marine Record, while that paper was published by A. A. Pomeroy, and it was the purpose of her builders, the Globe Iron Works Company, to sell her to the city as a fire boat, which was much needed on the Cuyahoga at that time; this laudable purpose was overruled by the fire board, and a wooden hull was built for that purpose, and named the J. H. Weatherly. In 1886 Mr. Creadon accepted a position on the schooner J. S. Richards, Capt. Joseph Church; in 1887 he went on the Golden Fleece; in 1888 on the steamer D. C. Whitney, Capt. Dan Ingham; in 1889 on the steamer George Spencer, Capt. Dick Jollie; in 1890 on the steamer C. B. Lockwood; and in 1891-92 on the steamer Castalia, Captain Allen. During his long term of service on lake craft Mr. Creadon was considered one of the most successful stewards on the lakes, and his services were always in demand. He is now in business at No. 590 Pearl street, Cleveland, and he makes friends of all whom he meets in a business way as well as socially.

In 1894 Mr. Creadon was united in marriage with Miss Kate McLaughlin, and one son, George E., has been born to this union.

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.
