Franklin - raised in WI orphanage for fatherless boys of Civil War vets. At age 12 he took a wagon train to SD, tried homesteading, then went to CA and finally to WA.

Frank Bibbins (came to Vashon 1884) began the first regular daily service to Quartermaster Harbor with the steamer "Sophia" - 42 ft long - two daily trips - stops at Yacht Club Boat House (Manzanita), Dry Dock (Dockton), Burrow's Landing? Bleeker's Brickyard (Burton Governor's Row), Hatch's Saw Mill (Assembly Point Burton Peninsula) "The brickyards and mill made considerable business for the little steamer..." Bibbins served the Harbor for 18 years - with the "Sophia" 1890-1899 and then the "Norwood"

In 1905 he was a co-founder, with Arthur Hunt, of Burton Navigation Co. He sold his interest in 1912 to Arda Hunt and LLoyd Hunt.

Vashon (steamer)

Capt. Chance Wiman, who had purchased a half interest in the steamer Sophia from W. H. Bibbins in 1894, bought out all his partner's interest in the firm of Wiman & Bibbins In 1904. It was understood that Bibbins would retire from the steamboat business.

Bibbins joined forces with A. M. Hunt to form the Tacoma & Burton Navigation Co., taking delivery of the new 93-foot steamer Burton from Crawford & Reid and placing her on an identical schedule with the Vashon. One of the most spirited and bitter rivalries in the history of Sound steamboating ensued. Rate wars, races and collisions were the order of the day. Pitched battles between the rival crews were not uncommon and every device was used to lure passengers.

A considerable description of Frank Bibbin's life is in "Van Olinda's History of Vashon-Maury Island" on p21.
