Jacob Hendricks

Jacob Hendricks, of Cleveland, is an engineer who has been connected with the marine industry for many years, and one whose name is well known among those of the same calling. He was born December 3, 1855, at Detroit, Mich., son of Daniel F. and Monique (Raymond) Hendricks, natives of Detroit and Canada, respectively. Mr. Hendricks lived at his native place for six years and then went to Chatham, Ontario, where he remained a short time. At the age of fourteen he sailed out of Detroit on the tug Sweepstakes, as fireman, and soon after went on the Kate Moffat, in the same capacity. He subsequently served as fireman upon the steamer Dove, running between Saginaw and Alpena, and the tugs C.L. Hunter, James Hay and Edwin Eddy, and then securing his papers, shipped on the Robert Boyd, being afterward employed on the Handy Boy, Daisy Lee, Charles Lee, George R. Dixon, Tom Maytham, James Amadeus, S.S. Stone, Mystic, L.P. Smith, T.M. Moore and Chris Grover. Mr. Hendricks now went to Port Huron and brought out the Mollie Spencer, from that boat transferring to the Alpena, and later to the Effie L., after which he went to Buffalo and brought out the Frank W. Following this he was engaged on the James Beard, George Brady, Grace Dormer, H.D. Conger, Hiawatha, Saginaw Valley, Thomas Palmer, L.R. Doty and George W. Morley, finally returning to the employ of L.P. & J.A. Smith and taking the C.E. Benham, in which he remained until transferred to the Boynton.

Mr. Hendricks was married, October 1, 1887, to Miss Minnie Gilboe, a native of Pontiac, Mich., and sister of Alfred C. Gilboe, who has been fireman on the Tom Maytham.

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.
