Rear Admiral Sylvanus W. Godon
I am searching for any information about Sylvanus W. Godon. He was born in Pennsylvania and was commissioned as a Captain in the Union navy in 1861 and ordered to command the sloop-of-war Powhatan, one of the vessels of Dupont's Expedition to Port Royal, South Carolina. He was promoted to Commodore in January of 1863. Any information about his Civil War career, or his familywould be gratefully recieved.
