I came across this in a 1852 U.S. Navy pay chart:
"A.M. DeBree, passed midshipman, pay $511.63, Rations $50, Travel $44. Gross Amount $555.83 for Fiscal Year ending June 30, 1852."
A mighty rich man.
Also under the Confederate States Navy:
Bureau of Ordnance & Hydrography in Richmond.
Robert D. Minor 1861
Alexander M. DeBree
I'm guessing this would be from 1861 to 1865 and referring to the head of it?
