in the Republican Journal, Thursday, March 6, 1873, Searsport:
“Captain Phineas Pendleton, senior, closed his long, useful and eventful life
at his home in this town on the 27th, at the ripe age of ninety-two years and
five months. His father, Peleg
Pendleton, was born in Connecticut, whence he emigrated to this place in 1783,
bringing his wife and ten children. The
youngest of these was Phineas, whose death this sketch notices.
Capt. Pendleton married Nancy, daughter of John Gilmore, of Belfast, and
had twelve children, the youngest of whom is now 41 years of age.
He leaves 64 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren.
Like most of the name, Capt. Pendleton followed the sea as a business.
In 1813 during the war with England, while master of the schooner
Belfast, he was captured by a privateer off Martinique, and taken to Liverpool,
Nova Scotia, where he was released. The
crew were taken to Dartmouth Prison. Capt.
Pendleton was an old school Democrat, having voted for Thomas Jefferson.
In the record of his whole life he leaves a legacy of which his
descendants may well be proud.”

last was the 79th birthday of Capt. Phineas Pendleton, of Searsport,

were present his three brothers, James, John and Frank, all sea captains; his
four sisters, Mrs. Woodman Carver, Mrs. James H. Pendleton, Mrs. William H.
Parks and Mrs. Nancy Colcord; and three daughters, Mrs. William Nichols and
husband, Mrs. Field, who is a widow, and Mrs. Nichols whose husband is in San
Francisco with a ship. His son,
Phineas, is in command of a fine new ship now in San Francisco.
Capt. Pendleton has been a commander of vessels for fifty years.
He never had any trouble with his men and never lost a vessel or a man. A fair illustration to show his kindness of heart is
that he hove his ship to in mid ocean when he was making eight knots an hour at
12 o’clock at night to pick up a monkey that a vicious boy threw
