The National Intelligencer, August 30, 1847

Lieut. Charles Wolcott Chauncey, United States Navy, commanding United States steamer Spitfire, died at Anton Lizardo on the 10th instant, from the effects of the prevailing epidemic (yellow fever). He was an officer of high reputation -- a man of worth, of noble and high-souled qualities, and ardently devoted to the profession of which he was an ornament. He has left many sincerely attached friends to mourn his loss -- a loss which his brother officers will feel and appreciate.

The National Intelligencer, February 29, 1848
