17951824, Jun 23
a lieutenant in the United States Navy. What has been described as "a very interesting sketch" of his career was given by James Edmonds Saunders in his late 19th-century work Early Settlers of Alabama. John and other sailors (five killed by cannibals and two survived) had been marooned on the island of Nuku Hiva for two years surviving Cannibalism between the wars of the Typees against the Happhas. John Minor Maury was promoted to first lieutenant, 1811; made flag captain to Commodore David Porter's fleet engaged in suppressing West Indian pirates, 1824.
