Captain Daniel H. Stalker

Captain Daniel H. Stalker was born at St. Mary's, Ontario, in 1843, and was a follower of the water, shipping before the mast in 1860, and for several seasons sailed on various vessels until 1871, in which year he became mate of the schooner J. H. Hartzell, with Captain Draper. In 1872 he was appointed mate of the George W. Holt, and in 1873 joined the William Raynor as mate, on which vessel he remained two seasons; and in 1875 and 1876 he shipped as mate on the schooner Atmosphere.

In 1877 Captain Stalker took out papers as master, and sailed the Harvey H. Bissell two seasons, then going in 1879 in a like office on the schooner William Shupe, remaining with her three seasons, and then took command of the schooner M. W. Page, which boat he sailed eight years. Leaving her in the fall of 1890 he became master of the schooner Charles Foster in 1891, remaining with her three years, and in 1894 was appointed master of the large schooner Golden Age, owned by Valentine Fries, of Milan, Ohio. During Captain Stalker's long career as master of vessels he has been unusually fortunate, and has never "fetched up on the bottom."

In 1880 Captain Stalker was married to Miss Annie Hamilton, of Marquette, Mich., and he owns a farm at De Pere, Wis., where they reside. Socially, he is a member of the Masonic fraternity, being a Knight Templar, and a member of St. Bernard Commandery, Chicago, 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.
