GLS Downward Bound's

Ship Companies of The Great Lakes

I want to thank Ed Gaulin for submitting the following and 
starting off this page.

FROM:  "Edward H. GAULIN" EHGAULIN@worldnet.att.net

The following is a list of the vessels built in the shipyard of a French
Canadian, Louis-Elie GAULIN (aka Lewis Elias GOLER), at Gravelle Point,
Cape Vincent, NY after about 1830. Cape Vincent is located on Lake
Ontario at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River.

The list of his ships may be imperfect. Most were schooner rigged
(exceptions are noted) and the first master's name is given following
the name of the vessel.

Henry (John DAVIS)			V. LeRay (John DAVIS)
Hannalt (Peter INGALLS)			O. P. Starkey (Peter INGALLS)
L. Goler (LUCAS)			Victor (RIPLEY)
Free Trade (SHATTUCK)			Chief Justice Marshall (EDIE)
Merchant (a brig) (T. PHEATT)		Henry Crevolin (BELISLE)
John E. Hunt (Peter INGALLS)		Napoleon (CROUCH)
Merchant (J. HARRIS)			Amelia (SHATTUCK)
Roscoe (SHATTUCK)			Potomac (SHATTUCK)
Iowa (a brig) (SHATTUCK)		Eliz. Goler (a sloop) (CUMMINGS)
Patrick Henry (W. E. INGALLS)		Montezuma (SMITH)
Troy (ALLANSWICK)			Globe (Lewis GOLER)
Charles Smith (W. E. INGALLS)		Algomah (READ)
Silas Wright (FULLER)			Port Henry (J. JARVIS)

Lewis E. Goler is said to have built several other vessels, but he was
probably out of business by the time they were laid down:

St. Nicholas (propeller) (LITT)		
T. H. Camp (a steamer) (Wm HORTON)

Can anyone identify any of these vessels or masters.  I am especially
interested in the specifications and disposition of the ships.

Thanks in advance.
