My ancestor, Captain Isaac Roach of the Pennsylvania Navy commanded the Hyder Ali during operations in Delaware Bay
in 1781. He participated in the recapture of the British prize, General Monk. This, according to records within the Pennsylvania Historical Society, Philadelphia, PA. Captain Roach also commanded "Hirt" "Congress" and "Charming Sally." He held commissions under Washington and Franklin copies of which are in my possesion.
