Captain F. B. Huyck

Captain F.B. Huyck, of the elegant steel steamer Chemung, owned by the Union Steamboat Company, is a native of New York State, born in 1859 at Sheridan. He is a son of Ansel B. and Emily Huyck, both now deceased, the former of whom was a farmer at Sheridan. There are but three children of the family now living; Frank B.; Richard, who is chief engineer of a pipe line at Oil City; and Mary, the wife of W.J. Cook, who is employed in the oil country, but is a resident of Fredonia, New York.

Captain Huyck obtained his education at his native place, and in the year 1879 began his sailing career as deckhand on the steamer Jay Gould, on which he was engaged all of that season. His next service was as wheelsman on the James Fisk, Jr., during the season of 1880, and he acted in the same capacity on the steamer Portage for the major part of 1881, which he closed, however, in second mate's berth. In 1882 he was second mate of the New York, and in 1883 of the H.J. Jewett, all the before-mentioned steamers being the property of the Union Steamboat Company. In 1884 he entered the service of the Corrigan fleet in the capacity of wheelsman on the steamer George T. Hope, and later was second mate of the Australasia, mate of the Raleigh and second mate of the Roumania. In 1890 the Captain returned to the employ of the Union Steamboat Company. During that year he was second mate of the Chemung, and he was mate of the same steamer from the spring of 1891 until June, 1895, when he was transferred to master's berth in the steamer New York for the remainder of that season. In 1896 he was master of the H.J. Jewett until September, when he was given the same berth on the Chemung, in which he was retained during the season of 1897.

The Captain was married, at Chicago, in February, 1889, to Miss Helen I. Samse, by whom he has two children. Franklin and Ansel. The family reside at Sheridan, 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.
