1. Who was the captain of the ship when she was commissioned 12 June 1781?
2. Was he in command later in 1781 when the ship was captured by the British?
3. What happened to the captain and crew when they were captured?

I should add that there was at least one other privateer called the Rattlesnake during the American revolution. One other was reported in a Philiadelphia newspaper and that ship was run aground in 1779 or 1780 and burnt. The MS kit is based on the lines taken off the ship that was built in and captured off Boston as per the website above.
