Introduction

The Church Collection was donated to the Institute by Henry N. Barkhausen on October 5, 1984. The Instrument of Gift was signed at the time of transfer.

Literary and property rights have been dedicated to the public and duplication is permitted. Final processing was completed in November 1991 by Mark J Barnes.

Biographical Sketch

Jesse Wells Church was born in Byron, Genesee County, New York on September 8, 1838 and died on June 7, 1911 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Church's parents, Philetus and Elizabeth, brought their family to Mackinac Island, Michigan in 1845 and moved to Sugar Island in the St. Mary's River near Sault Ste. Marie in 1846.

Philetus Church began the shipbuilding company that Jesse Church later operated. Many of the early Church employees were Ojibwas and Jesse learned their language as a child. An interest in the welfare of the Ojibwa caused Jesse Church to combine his varied talents in forms beneficial to his lifelong friends. When Jesse Church ran the shipbuilding company, Ojibwas learned carpentry and other skills. When Church became a doctor, he spent much of his time treating Ojibwa patients. After marrying Rosalie LaSage in 1865, the Indian ancestry of his wife prompted an interest in education for Ojibwa children while he was raising what became a family of four daughters and four sons. Later in life Church published Ojibwa legends told to him by friends to preserve that part of traditional Ojibwa culture.

Church's shipbuilding career was characterized primarily by designing skiffs and other vessels of less than fifty feet in length. Many of the Mackinaw boats used for commercial fishing and hauling small freight cargoes were built by Church's company. Working with Ned Pero and other French Canadians, Church designed new variations on Mackinaw boats to meet requirements for sailing on the St. Mary's River and the open lakes. Church did build some steam vessels as well as sailing vessels. An interest in the development of propulsion systems led to an active correspondence with the editor of The Scientific American magazine regarding screw propeller design.

In other sidelines Jesse Church was a census enumerator and deputy customs collector. Church measured boats for official registration purposes. Participation in Republican Party activities marked his political interests.

Scope and Content

The Jesse Wells Church Collection contains a journal maintained for the Church family shipbuilding business on Sugar Island, Michigan from 1853 to 1895. Church resided in Church's Landing on Sugar Island and in left by the Church family give details and specifications for boats that generally were skiffs or other small sailing vessels under fifty feet in length. Many of the Mackinaw boats were built by the Church family.

The collection frequently records sail rig plans, vessel sketches, account statements for projects, and notes on whether a boat was patterned after an earlier design. For example, on page 150 it is noted that hull no. 28 was built on the same frames as hull no. 10. Use of hull or boat histories can be complicated in that some boats were built from parts salvaged from other vessels. Sails and planking were frequently transferred from one Mackinaw boat to another.

Appearing with the vessel materials are sketches of the buildings at Church's Landing and related floor plans. Photographs of the Sugar Island structures dating from the early twentieth century are available in the HCGL's photograph collection. A few houses at Harbor Island and Traverse City were also sketched in the collection.

The journal has been microfilmed and was disbound for the procedure. The pages have been separated into leaves with four pages per leaf. Each leaf has been encapsulated for conservation purposes. The leaves are stored in a one-half cubic foot container.

Series Description

LITERARY PRODUCTIONS

JOURNAL
1853-1895
Series contains a business journal kept by Jesse Wells Church and other family members to record progress on shipbuilding projects at Church's Landing, Michigan on Sugar Island near Sault Ste. Marie. The journal dates from 1853-1895 and 1903. Ship sketches, specifications, and cost tables frequently are the components of entries. The journal is chronological in that earlier entries do generally reflect earlier years for projects. There are irregularities present, so it must be noted that an exact chronological arrangement is not always followed. Descriptive terms for vessels also can be idiosyncratic. Combined terms such as Mackinaw boat yacht or barge yacht appear occasionally.
