George S. Weeks built ships in Clayton NY in 1840s then moved his yard and family to Oswego, NY. He later continued up the Great Lakes to Buffalo, Chicago and Detroit. I have the names of some of the ships he built. The Comely, Racine, and a few others. He was in Oswego from the 1850s and 1860s. I have heard that one of his ships was used in the Civil War at the battle of New Bern, NC. I have been on a few wreck dives in Ontario Lake...around Penetanguishene.
