I am seeking parents of Capt. Mordecai Prindle b 1775, married Lucy Moss b 1778, had 5 children before apparently perishing at sea, perhaps in the great September Gale of 1815.His son Abram b 1796 is likely to have perished with him, as there is a death record for him dying "at sea" age 19.
Other children's names are Janette, William A., Eliza, and Mordecai (d. unm).
A Derby, CT history mentions Joseph Prindle as Mordecai's brother and a fellow seafarer.He apparently survived to old age.Can't find the "right" parents for Joseph, either.
William A. is my g-g-gfather.
Would appreciate any insights.happy hunting,nancy miller
