L. Ed. Moore

L. Ed. Moore is an ambitious young marine engineer, and promises to reach a high standing among the chiefs of his responsible calling. He was born in Port Huron, Mich., August 10, 1868, and is a son of Richard and Philomena (Roberts) Moore, the former of whom was born in Mt. Clemens, Mich., the latter in Port Dalhousie, Canada. The parents removed to Port Huron soon after their marriage. L. Ed. Moore attended the public schools of Port Huron and took a course in the International Business College of that city. After having acquired a liberal education he entered the employ of C. B. Dole & Son, of Port Huron, as an apprentice to the steamfitting trade, serving three years. He also worked one year at the Phoenix Iron Works, and one year as fireman in the pulp mills, the next year going to Fairport, Ohio, where he ran an engine for use on derricks. In the spring of 1888 he shipped as fireman on the tug George R. Paige, and following this served one season in the tug Annie and part of a season on the George B. Dickson. In the spring of 1891 he joined the tug Carkin, engaged on government work at the Sault, and after firing her three months transferred to the tug George E. Brockway. In the spring of 1892 he secured engineer's license and was appointed second on the lake tug Mocking Bird, on which boat he lost a finger which was caught in the machinery, laying him off work about six weeks. He closed the season on the steamer George L. Colwell.

The next spring Mr. Moore was appointed chief engineer of the tug J. P. Clarke, and after running her five months closed the season on the tug Jim Pullar, to which he returned the season following, running her until the fall of 1896, when he chartered the tug Walter W. Richardson and engaged in fishing for two months, in the meantime sailing the yacht Alert for R. J. Cram. In the spring of 1897 Mr. Moore was appointed engineer of the tug Fred Crosby, engaged on Government work in the Portage river at Duluth. That winter he chartered the tug F. H. Stanhope, and did towing about the harbor and the St. Clair river. Mr. Moore is a member of the Marine Engineers Beneficial Association, the Independent Order of Foresters and the Knights of the Maccabees. He lives with his parents at No. 828 Erie street, Port Huron, Michigan.

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.
