Most recent update: April 13, 2016.


Gardner G. Deering was active in the industry as both a builder and an operator for 55 years.  Initially he teamed with William T. Donnell, as Deering & Donnell, but split with Donnell in 1886 and took over the nearby Flint & Chapman yard, which he operated as G. G. Deering Company until 1919.  If anyone has any corrections or additions to this table, please send them to timcolton@aol.com.
