Je confirme: Naissance Gracien 2 septembre 1755
Naissance Pierre 23 août 1785. Il était lieutenant au commerce en 1802 et second capitaine en 1803; en aucun cas il n'aurait pu commander en 1798.

recherche dans geneanet.org : Gratien père de Pierre corsaires tous les 2
mais 2 généalogies donnent des années de naissance différentes 1785 et 1795 , d'accord qu'il ne peut pas commander sauf si né en 1785 ???

Le commandant était Gracien Desparmet et non Pierre qui encore trop jeune pour commander.
