Birth: unknown
Death: Mar., 1839, At Sea

Pilot, USS Sea Gull

Prior to the USS Sea Gull Isaac Percival was a member of the crew of the USS Relief, a supply ship in the United States Navy.

"The Sea Gull was last seen waiting out a gale in the lee of Staten Island off Cape Horn. After a month or so, the officers of the [US Exploring Expedition] assumed the Sea Gull was lost and took up a collection for a monument to their memory. That monument stands in the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It lists the names of the officers who were lost on the Sea Gull and the names of two officers who were killed during the survey of the Pacific Islands. No mention was made of the other 24 sailors and marines who died during the expedition." --- Wikipdedia
