Captain Leonard S. Tawes was born in Accomack County, Virginia in 1853. Her started his maritime career at the age of 15 as a cook on a Chesapeake Bay oyster dredging pungy.

In a group of hand-written journals he prepared in the 1920's he recorded his entire seagoing career so that his granddaughter would have some knowledge of his experiences. Unwittingly, he was documenting a phase of American shipping about which very little has been written.
