    Captain H.D. Ingraham, a popular and competent master of tugs operating out of Fairport harbor, and a courteous and genial companion, is the son of Daniel N. and Marian (Brooks) Ingraham. His father was born in Fairport in 1832, and will be remembered by some of the older lake masters. He was made a skipper when but nineteen years old, taking command of the schooner Mohegan, and he also sailed the schooner H. P. Bridge, the bark Zach Chandler (which he brought out new), the Sonora, and the bark City of Painesville, of which he was master four years, and which he designated as the clipper ship of the lakes. He brought out the G. S. Hazard new. His steamboat commands were the Minneapolis and D. C. Whitney, and he closed his active career on the lakes in the Whitney about the year 1884. He then entered the employ of the American Transportation Company, of Fairport, looking after the interests of the tugs and sailing them as occasion required. In 1890 he finally retired from his busy life, and he passed over to the silent majority May 10, 1895, at the age of sixty-three years. His widow is still living on the old homestead farm near Mentor, where she was born. Of their children Capt. Freeman E. was master of the steamer Robert Wallace during the season of 1897, and was assigned to the new steamer built at F. W. Wheeler's West Bay City shipyard for the Bessemer Steamship Company, considered the largest on the lakes; Mary R. is the wife of D. K. Patterson, of Davisville, Cal.; Sarah E. is the wife of G. E. Brooks, of Mentor, Ohio.

    The grandparents on the paternal side were Joseph and Sarah Ingraham, and on the maternal side Henry and Mary Brooks, all of old New England stock, and pioneers of Mentor and Fairport townships.
