Sutton is the son of Peter and Margaret (Singer) Sutton (both now deceased), for many years residents of Buffalo, the former being a member of the firm of Sutton Brothers, who carried on a machine shop on LeCouteulx street, which has long been a landmark in the lower part of the city of Buffalo.

The subject of this sketch was born at Buffalo, March 8, 1864, and attended school at St. Joseph's College, Buffalo, finishing at the age of eighteen. He learned his trade at Sutton Bros' shop, and later worked for the Buffalo Pump Works. In 1887 he was engineer of the steamyacht Corsair for one season. The next three seasons he was in the same capacity on the steamyacht Alexander Sloan, owned by Samuel Sloan, and in 1891 he was engineer of the excursion steamers Gazelle and Vision. During 1893-94 he was engineer of the steamyacht Riverside, and for 1895- 96-97 was engineer of the excursion steamer Idle Hour. For [the] season of 1898 he was chief engineer of the Riverside. Mr. Sutton was married at Buffalo, in 1885, to Miss Addie Schneider, by whom he has two children, Loretta and LaRoy Consuela. The family reside at No. 294 Mulberry street, Buffalo. Mr. Sutton is a member of the Buffalo Harbor Tug Pilots Association.

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.
