Master's Mate, CSS Alabama, was born on March 21, 1841, at Kingston-upon-Hull, in England. Joined the CS Navy at the age of 21, and signed aboard the Alabama on July 29, 1862. After the war, joined the merchant marine and commanded the steamer Marlborough, which was lost with all hands, at or near the Bay of Biscay, in November or December, 1879.
