Need the birthdate and/or parents of Capt. Atherton Wales who sailed out of Bath, ME circa 1800-1830. He was born in MA. There were a total of three males named Atherton Wales born in Mass. between 1761 and 1772 and he could be any one of the three. Atherton married Caroline Sprague in Bath before 1798. I have a considerable amount of information on the Wales family I will share.
