P. Markoe arrived Boston on Brig Prize 1825 from Matanzas, Cuba. Age 46, birth about 1779. Occupation cooper. A descendant of this line stated these Markoes were in the cooperage business in Chili. 1779 birth matches that reported for Philip Markoe (AKA de la Marck)
Benj. Markoe, age 16 born about 1809, also a cooper. On image name appears to be "Benj" but could be something else.
1825 date is from Ancestry.com but there is no date on the record itself.
P. Markoe's birth approximates that of Philip de la Marck - supposed son of Peter and Sarah Markoe of St. Eustatius. Benj. Markoe's birth is about same as Philip's son Frederick who died about 1840 in Chili.
A George Markoe has Seaman's Potection Certificate 8123 issued 1824 Salem, MA. Age 16, birth about 1808
A Philips [sic] Markoe has Seaman's Protection Certificate 10157 issued 1829 Salem, MA. Age is 23 and birth about 1806.
Also, Geo H Markoe

Again, birth date parallels that of Frederick Markoe.
Protection certificates were issued to people traveling at sea for the purpose of preventing impressment.
Coincidentally, Markoe Point on Cooper's Island, BVI, is reportedly named for a Markoe plantation that was there - or possibly a Markoe cooperage?
I am trying to identify these people.
