Andrew J. Green

Andrew J. Green, who was mate of the steamer John B. Lyon during the season of 1896, was born near Chautauqua Lake, in New York, in 1860. His parents were Daniel S. and Caroline (Degg) Green, the former being a grape grower who settled with his family near Cleveland shortly after the birth of our subject.

Andrew J. Green commenced sailing in 1874, making one trip on the old schooner Niagara, thence to the old scow Lamar, spending a year on that craft; later on was on the following boats for one season each: The scow I. L. Quinby, the schooner N.C. West, and the schooner Smith Moore. After taking out the Moore on her maiden trip, he transferred to the schooner D. P. Rhodes for one season, then to the schooner Thomas Gawn three seasons, after which he became second mate of the steamer James Pickands, and held that position three seasons. He was one season on the steamer Servia, then commanded the passenger steamer Austria, running between Cleveland and Put-in-Bay, part of one season, the latter part of which he was mate on the steamer Uganda. Since then he has been mate of the steamer George W. Morley one season; of the steamer Columbia two seasons, and of the steamer John B. Lyon one season, that of 1896. Mr. Green is not the only member of his family on the lakes, his brother George having been a mate of sailing vessels.

In 1889 Mr. Green was married to Miss Minnie Tizeau, of Cleveland. They have three children: Grace Gertrude, Raymond and Chester Arthur.

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.
