    Captain for the "Hampton" steamship. 

    • Built at Hampton in 1894, the Hampstead made daily trips
      between Indiantown and Hampstead, Queens County, under Captain
      J. Gillis Mabee until his death in 1897, and then under his son
      Arnold. This vessel was relatively small, with a high
      superstructure that made for challenging navigation. For
      example, when approaching a wharf, large numbers of passengers
      commonly moved to one side preparing to disembark. To prevent
      capsizing, hogheads of sand were rolled to the opposite side of
      the hull. The 94-foot Hampstead was the first screw propeller
      passenger steamer on the St. John River. In 1916 the Hampstead
      fell victim to a fire, a common misfortune for the riverboats.
