In the previous post, I wrote that the USS Susquehanna, under Captain John C. Chauncey captured a blockade runner.
I also have a War of 1812 blog called Not So Forgotten, and have written a lot about American Naval commander Isaac Chauncey who led operations at Sackets Harbor New York in the struggle for Lake Ontario.
I got to wondering if the two were related, perhaps John was Isaac's son?
Genealogy says that Isaac Chauncey had a son named John St. Clair Chauncey born 1805, died April 10, 1871.
Most likely, John S. is Isaac's son.
