This is my Uncle Thomas Newman's Grandfather who I have heard was instrumental in instilling the love of steamboats into him as a young boy growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. He used to take young Tommy to the shipyards, stories that I hold dear to my heart when he talks of his childhood. Ironically Tommy joined the U.S. Navy after college, serving on the USS Archerfish out of Key West, Florida.

Information found on the site "Great Lakes Maritime History" has a detailed listing of the various vessels, captains and the early history of the steamboat industry on the Great Lakes. The following is a paragraph noted from the book "History of the Great Lakes, Vol.2 by J.B.Mansfield, Published Chicago: J.H.Beers & Co. 1899

THOMAS FRANKLIN NEWMAN
Thomas Franklin Newman was born in Cleveland, Ohio, April 8, 1853, at which port he was reared and obtained a liberal education. In 1872 he entered the employ of the Detroit & Cleveland Steam Navigation Co., as receiving clerk in Cleveland, and remained with the firm for twenty years, resigning to take the general management of the Cleveland & Buffalo Transit line. Mr. Newman's business career has been of a steady and successful growth, beginning as clerk with the Detroit & Cleveland line and working his way upward to the office of general agent at Cleveland, succeeding the late Capt. L.A. Pierce, in 1882, and ultimately resigning that position to assume the duties of the more important office in the new line of steamers.

In 1882, Mr. Newman married Miss Carrie L. Glover, daughter of Luther M. Glover, of Howell, Mich. He has resided in Cleveland since that time, and is highly respected by his business associates and widely known as a business-like and courteous traffic manager.
