I read somewhere that Stephen Pope Pilchard died at sea. Does anyone have any information on this. Was he a fisherman? I show that he died in 1809 at his last voyage at sea.I show he was born in 1784 in Snow Hill, Worchester Co., Maryland.His wife, Sally Watson married Eli Blades after he died. I am decendent from Stephen and Sally's daughter Harriett S. Pope Pilchard.From Harriett S. Pope Pilchard's birth date, she was born on 2-27-1810, which means she was born after he father had already passed away.
I'm really just curious, but any help would be welcome.
