Captain Timothy Heagerty

Captain Timothy Heagerty, despite the years of experience he has had, is a young tug master who has given undiminished satisfaction to his present employers, with whom he has been steadily engaged since 1890 as master of their tugs. He was born in Oswego, N. Y., on December 4, 1867, son of Cornelius and Johanna (Heagerty) Heagerty, his mother not changing her name when she married. The parents were born in County Clare, Ireland, and came to the United States about the year 1848, locating in Oswego, where they were married. Jerry Heagerty, an uncle of the Captain, was a master of schooners and lost his life while mate on a schooner which foundered on Lake Michigan.

Timothy Heagerty attended the public schools until he reached the age of eighteen years, when he shipped in the schooner Hattie L. Johnson, plying between Montreal and Oswego in the coal trade. In the spring of 1888 he shipped as lineman in the tug Charlie Ferris, holding that berth two seasons and during the following two years served in the Phineas Marsh and other vessels. On February 14, 1890, having received his license during the winter, he entered the employ of Carkin, Stickney & Cram, and was appointed master of the tug Ada Barrett, operating at the Sault and Hay Lake Channel, waiting on dredges and doing general towing. The next spring he was appointed master of the tug Pandora, engaged in towing at Ogdensburg, N.Y., and in the spring of 1892 he was given command of the tug Dragon, which he has retained six years. She is at this writing stationed at Ashtabula, Ohio, where Messrs. Carkin, Stickney & Cram have a contract for dredging.

Captain Heagerty is a man of pleasant address and gentlemanly bearing. On February 6, 1895, he married Miss Kittie Meagher, daughter of Patrick and Nora Meagher, of Oswego, N. Y., and one son, Francis, has been born to their union. They reside at No. 236 West Fourth street, Oswego, New York.

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.
