Comments: George Privateer Roberts (Nee: ) | Baltimore Md United States | 1851-1900 | Comments: George R. Roberts (1766 – 14 January 1861) was an American privateer in the War of 1812. He began his career as a privateer in July 1812, a month after the start of the war, sailing from his native Baltimore on Captain Richard Moon's privateer Sarah Ann. The next month, in the Bahamas, their ship attacked and captured a British ship transiting from Kingston, Jamaica to London, England and brought its cargo of sugar and coffee to Savannah, Georgia. Back in the Bahamas on 13 September 1812, the Sarah Ann was captured by the HMS Redbridge. Roberts was among six sailors accused of being British deserters, but Captain Moon asserted him "a native born of the United States [with] every sufficient document, together with free papers."
