Captain Phillip Francis Appell was an officer in the Confederate State Navy. He was born in Prussia in 1831. The Register of Confederate States Naval Officers says Appell was appointed Master's mate July 11, 1861, and acting sailing master October 14, 1861. He served on the C.S.R.S. St. Phillip at New Orleans Station in 1861. In September of 1861 he was detached from the C.S.R.S. St. Phillip and ordered to Galveston, Texas. That's where he commanded the C.S.S. Bayou City from 1861-1862. The C.S.S. Bayou City was a 165-foot side-wheel steamer that was built for commercial use. It was originally a mail boat that ran between Galveston and Houston. Bayou City was charted in September of 1861 by Commander W.W. Hunter and was taken over by the war department in October 1862. Phillip Francis Appell died, June 25, 1898, aged 67 years.
