Charles Heberle (1862-1956) was sent at age 13 from Virginia to Essex, where for three years he was indentured to the Essex Tannery. Once free, he worked nearby for a dairy farmer, Caleb Cogswell.
Soon, Heberle chose waterfront over farm and shoveled coal aboard tugboats. Earning a post as Captain, he risked his life to tow a flame engulfed gasoline barge. He founded the Gloucester Coal and Lumber Company, now the Building Center, with the salvage fee.

The City archives contain apprenticeship papers for 373 children in Gloucester from 1739 to 1852. See more historical gleanings from the Archives Committee at City Hall.
