||First enrollment issued at Cleveland, OH, April 28, 1855.WILLIAM CASE was apparently sold Canadian briefly in 1901. Her Toledo enrollment issued on 5-11-1895 was surrendered at Detroit on 5-15-1901. A new enrollment was issued and surrendered on that same day because she was \"Renationalized.\" Yet another enrollment was issued on 5-15-1901 and she again became an American vessel. No other mention of her Canadian owners is made in the enrollment abstracts (actual certificates not being available at this time), but Merchant Vessels of the United States for 1901 lists her as the former \"British\" schooner WILLIAM CASE. No other indication of her foreign ownership was uncovered in Inland Lloyds, Beeson's Marine Directory, or other marine directories. Canadian shipping lists between 1890 and 1902 were not available at the time this research was conducted.
Research of Jerry Metzler and J.C.M., 1-5-1988.
