William Maine

Rank(s): Carpenter's Mate

Dates of Service: 8/4/1811 - 12/29/1812

Early Life

Maine’s date and place of birth are unknown. Maine sent an allotment of $12 per month to one Hannah Maine between 1812 and 1814. Her relationship to Maine is not known, but she was probably his wife or mother.

Maine entered Constitution on August 4, 1811 and was rated a carpenter’s mate. At some point in early 1812 he was disrated to ordinary seaman. He left the ship on August 26, 1812 at Washington, DC, but he seems to have immediately re-enlisted, and served as a carpenter’s mate again. It is not known when he left the ship again, but he was gone by 1814.

Battles and Engagements

During Mahoney’s service on board, the ship made a diplomatic mission to France and Holland. Later he participated in the battles with HMS Guerriere on August 19, 1812 and HMS Java on December 29, 1812.

Maine’s place and date of death are unknown.
