Hello, I'm new here. Just found out that there is actually a message board for pirates. I'm looking for a pirate, in fact a whole family of pirates, who ran afoul of The Law and were sent to Georgia...only when they arrived the ship was flying the Jolly Roger and the former crew was no longer in evidence.
They went on from Savannah to New Orleans and joined LaFitte fighting the British in the Battle of New Orleans. Things got hot for them afterwards and most went "honest" starting plantations, etc. Some went The Texas. Head of the family liked pirating and stayed with the sea. Probably came to a bad end. No dates on this except for The Battle of New Orleans, which was 1815. Anybody heard of pirates named "FORD" or JFORD" or FORDE"? My husband goes by "Foul Frank". Maybe they all have aliases! ;o)
