  • Notes 
    • Lived briefly in Canada before coming to US

      His mother's brother was named Edwin George -- so he was presumably named after his Uncle.

      1917, working for Richardson and Company, EGH was appointed Engineer of the Line. Evidently a union member, EGH was elected an officer, Financial Secretary, of MEBA No 43 of Port Huron.
      I have noted that there was a Steamer Saturn on Great Lakes in 1905 with Engineer E Harris, Captain, George White. Gilchrist Transportation, Cleveland

      I know from a surviving photo and note (I think from Harris himself) that he was Chief Engineer of the Steamer Alex B Uhrig in the Great Lakes, see 1920 photo.
