Hubert G. Haybarger

Hubert G. Haybarger, a young pilot of the first class, and who possess more than the usual ability, received a liberal education in the public schools of Girard, Penn., where he was born January 8, 1872, a son of Joseph B., and Margaret A. (Brubaker) Haybarger, a grandson of John Haybarger, a wealthy farmer, of Mill Creek township, near Girard.

Mr. Haybarger's father died in 1874, at the age of forty-four years, leaving eight children (six of whom are still living) to the care of the mother, the oldest being twenty years of age. She proved equal to the responsible charge, and the result shows that all are prepared to take the different walks in life. Joseph B., the eldest son, is now an engineer on the Nickel Plate railroad; Levi E. is a prominent lawyer at Omaha, Neb.; Walter L. is a conductor on the Philadelphia & Erie railroad, stationed at Erie, Penn.; William and Winfield died young; Anna J. is now the wife of Mr. H.H. Seeley, an engineer on the Nickel Plate railroad, and resides at Conneaut; Mable L. is the wife of T.M. Titus, foreman in the Nickel Plate railroad shops at Conneaut; and Hubert G., the subject of this sketch. He commenced sailing as watchman in April, 1888, on the steamer Lehigh, of the Anchor Steamship line. The next season he was advanced to the berth of wheelsman, which he held four seasons, under the eyes of Capt. H.A. Sisson, a prominent lake master at the time. Captain Sisson, who died in 1893, after continuous service of a quarter of a century in the Anchor line, was always ready and desirous to help deserving young sailors to the front. And thus it was that, in 1893, Mr. Haybarger, after the death of Captain Sisson, found himself competent to do the duties of second mate on the steamer Codorus. In the spring of 1894 Mr. Haybarger shipped as second mate on the steamer E.B. Hale, and the latter part of 1895 was advanced to the position of mate.

He passed the winter months as fireman on the New York, Chicago and St. Louis railroad. In the spring of 1896 he came out as mate of the steamer Kaliyuga, transferring to the Samuel Mather, and on October 15 returned to Conneaut, where he was engaged as locomotive fireman until August 7, 1897, when he shipped as mate on the steamer Gladstone with Capt. H. Peterson, which position he now holds.

Mr. Haybarger is a thirty-second-degree Free Mason of Cleveland Consistory, his Knight Templar Commandery being Cache No. 27, located in Conneaut, Ohio, where he resides.

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.
