Alexander M. DeBree, CSN-- Part 6:Passed Midshipman Pay and the Bureau

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?
