(Note: The above introduction was written before I posted the information concerning the three separate British men-of-war that transported many of the individuals listed below to New York City as prisoners-of-war after the capture of the frigate South Carolina. Many of the men cited on the roster below are identified as being transported on board of one of these British men-of-war, either the HMS Diomede, HMS Quebec, or HMS Astrea. This constitutes additional information about them. Some of them we have located their "position" on board the frigate South Carolina or ascertained it as nearly as possible to predict what services they performed on board the frigate. Thus, it is irrelevant to recite the list below again with the posting of the three posts above this one. Instead, I have chosen to delete any individuals who names appeared on one of the transportation rosters of the three British men-of-war or who additional information has been located or guessed at by the writer of this blog. Those who are listed below are the remaining ones that we know nothing else about except their names as they appear in section of Dr. Lewis's work, Neptune's Militia, "Appendix: Crew and Marines of the South Carolina" pages 135-170. Yet, by their names appearing on the roster there is indication that they did serve on board the frigate South Carolina at some point in her two voyages.)
As usual, these individuals are cited alphabetically according to their last name. If a number in parentheses appears immediately after the individual's name, that indicates the number of citations of that specific name in the roster:
Mr. ------ Birck
John Baptiste Fetardo
Mr. ------ Gribett
Mr. ------ Moore
Sebron Philup Skepper
Mr. ------- Speairs
John Alleyne Walter
Originally, this list had just over 400 names on it. But, with the formulation of each of the prisoner-of-war rosters for the three British men-of-war, the HMS Diomede, HMS Quebec, HMS Astrea, the numbers decreased to 161 names. These men literally have nothing more known of them than their names. That is all. But, the fact that their names appear in Dr. Lewis's work, Neptune's Militia, "Appendix: Crew and Marines of the South Carolina", pages 135-170 they must have served on board the frigate South Carolina and thus have a space here in this history, even if only their name is all that is known.
As further information is accumulated on any of these individuals, their names will be placed on whatever post they belong on. This additional information is assumed by this blog writer to be in reference to their "position" on board the frigate South Carolina, any pension applications that may have been filed by themselves or their families in later years, or cross-references to other works of a more genealogical nature. But, some of these men may still elude any further reference and remain only a name on the roster of the frigate South Carolina. Still, they served on board this ship and their names will be recorded as such.
Many of the names contained in the above list can possibly be explained upon closer examination. One notices that frequently the same first name is seen and the the last name only differs slightly from another one on the list. These are almost certainly the same individual. Examples of this are: "John Egan and John Eagan", John Evins and John Evans", "Joseph Saullier and Joseph Soullier", "Francis Foussard and Francis Fonssard", "William McCasset and William McHasset". This occurs several times on the list and, once again, is almost certainly a repetition of the same man.
The second occurrence that is noticeable on the list is that some of the names are alternate spellings of names of individuals who already have an established "position" on board the frigate South Carolina. An example of this occurrence is "Jeremy Parse - Prizemaster". He is cited in the post dated "03/18/2015". On the above list, a "Jeremy Pierce" also appears but, nothing more is said of him. Also, there is the occurrence of "Joseph Dizamore - Captain, volunteer". He is cited among the "captains" on board the frigate South Carolina at some point during her two voyages and is referred to in the post dated "03/03/2015". On the list above, there is cited a "Joseph Dessamore" but, again, nothing more is given for him.
