In Reply to: Josiah Batchelder, Jr., ship owner by Stephen Herrick of 893

Pierce's book names a Capt. Josiah Batchelder b. Beverly, MA, 25 Sept 1736; m. 18 Feb 1760, Hannah Dodge

It does not name his ship, but says, "He early began a nautical life, and by energy of character soon rose to the command of a vessel. In 1761, on his passage from Georgia to St. Christopher, with a cargo of lumber, he was taken by a French privateer, and after being detained 24 hours succeeded in obtaining release of his vessel for two thousand three hundred pieces of eight. ..."

Is this the Josiah you are looking for?
