Aaron P. Hagedon

Aaron P. Hagedon, for the past nineteen years the efficient chief engineer of the steambarge Benton, with residence at Algonac, Mich., is a native of that city, having been born there October 29, 1848. He is a son of Captain Perry and Maria Hagedon, the former of whom is yet living, at the patriarchal age of eighty years, the latter being deceased. The father was at one time captain of the scow Antelope, owned by Williams & Mills, of Vicksburg, Mich., and he afterward owned and sailed the schooner Miller, of Algonac, and other small schooners.

Engineer Hagedon entered his life on the Great Lakes as cook on his father's vessels, in which capacity he remained several years. In 1867 he accepted a position as engineer on the tug Ontario, Capt. James Harrow, and for ten years acted in the same capacity on the William Goodnow, after which he became chief engineer on the steambarge Benton.

In 1869 Mr. Hagedon was married to Sarah Taft, of Algonac, Mich., daughter of William and Ann Taft. Ten children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Hagedon, eight of whom are living, their names and dates of birth being as follows: William, 1871; Dana, 1875; Lillie, 1877; Lizzie, 1879; Maynard A., 1884; Sadie, 1885; Walter, 1886; and Edith 1890. The deceased are Angus, born 1873, died 1884; and Annie Maria, born 1893 and who died the same year.

In religion Mr. Hagedon is a member of the Christian or Disciples Church, and socially is a member of the A.O.U.W., and Marine Engineers Beneficial Association. Politically, he votes the Democratic ticket.

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.
