Noted United States Naval officer. Entering the Navy as a midshipman in 1800, he served from 1802 to 1807 on ships engaged in the Tripolitan War. Commanding the "Peacock" in the War of 1812, he captured the British brig "Epervier" off Florida in 1814 and then embarked on a voyage around the North Atlantic in which 14 more prizes were taken. Undertaking a new voyage to the Indian Ocean in late 1814, he took several more prizes, some after the war had officially ended. He commanded ships in the Mediterranean Squadron from 1816 to 1821, the Norfolk Navy Yard from 1821 to 1824 and again from 1830 to 1840, and the "Mosquito Fleet," fighting piracy in the West Indies from 1824 to 1826. He served as acting Secretary of the Navy in 1844 and became Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance in 1846. (bio by: Garver Graver)
