Captain Charles N. Hearnes

Captain Charles N. Hearnes was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1848, and is a son of Capt. Charles M. and Adelia Hearnes. He attended the public schools of his native city during the winter months only for a brief period, taking up his life on the lakes in 1857, when he became cook on the schooner Industry, with his father. In 1861 he shipped before the mast again with his father, on the schooner J. W. Sargeant, serving in minor positions until 1872, when he was appointed mate, in which capacity he remained nine years longer. On August 28, 1881, he shipped as mate on the schooner J. R. Pelton, upon which he continued ten years, part of that time as master. In 1890 he sailed the yacht Iolanthe for Robert Rhodes remaining ashore part of the season. When his father purchased the schooner Rival he sailed on her as master and mate alternately until the close of navigation of 1896, when she was laid up in Cleveland harbor. During his career as a mariner Captain Hearnes has been instrumental in saving more than one life; he assisted in the rescue of the crew of a capsized scow in the Detroit river, and on another occasion, with his wife's aid, he saved from drowning a man who had fallen from the deck of the Rival.

The Captain was married to Miss Emma E. Armstrong, of Cleveland, Ohio, on October 13, 1869. Their children are Capt. Frank A. (master of the Cleveland fireboat J. H. Farley); George W., Charles E., Emma E., Ida P. and Sarah A. The family residence is in Cleveland, Ohio.

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.
