HARADEN, Jonathan, naval officer, born in Gloucester, Massachusetts, in 1745; died in Salem, Massachusetts, 26 November, 1803. When the war of independence began, he joined the " Tyrannicide" as 1st lieutenant, and shortly afterward was promoted captain, and appointed to the command of the "Picketing." In a night assault in the Bay of Biscay he captured a British privateer of 60 men and 22 guns, beat off a London privateer with 42 guns and 140 men, and on another occasion came upon three armed vessels in a line, and captured one after the other, with no loss of life on his own vessel. He is said to have taken nearly 1,000 cannon from the British during the war. At the close of 1781, with all his vessels and prizes, he was captured by the royal commander, Rodney, at St. Eustatius, West Indies. The "Julius Caesar" was his last command.
