John Williams

Captain of maintop on board of the U. S. S. Pawnee, in the attack upon Mathias Point, June 26, 1861; “gallantry cannot be spoken of in too high-terms; though wounded by a musket ball in the thigh, he retained the charge of his boat; and when the staff was shot away held the stump in his hand, with the flag, until we got alongside the Freeborn.” (G. O. 11, Apr. 3, 1863.)
