The USS Roebuck was a bark rigged clipper ship, acquired and commissioned by the Union Navy in 1861. She was assigned to the Atlantic Blockade, and later to the East Gulf Blockade. In late 1863, she was reassigned to the Indian River area of Florida, where she intercepted numerous blockade runners. In late July of 1864, because of weakened rigging, the Roebuck proceeded to Tampa Bay where she acted as a storeship. There, yellow fever broke out among the crew. It is likely that was the cause of death for William Bradford, given the date and place of his death.
