CAHOONE, J. Benjamin, naval pay-director, born in Rhode Island, in 1800; died in New York City, 27 July, 1873. He was appointed purser in the United States navy, 12 November, 1830, and after sixteen years of sea service and as many of shore duty, he was retired in 1861, having reached the legal limit of age for active service. He was, however, assigned to duty during the exigencies of the civil war at the navy-yards of Boston and Portsmouth, was promoted to be pay-director, and was finally retired with the relative rank of commodore in 1868, after serving for thirty-eight years with exemplary diligence and faithfulness.
