      James Stinson suffered a similar but greater loss. Having assisted in the construction of Port George, he later became a crewman on a British privateer. During one
      of the privateer's raids along the nearby Maine coast, it captured an Amerloan patriot's vessel which was taken baolc to the British fort as a prize and sold. As a result, not only was Stinson's farm plundered by rebel raiders, but at war's end It was oonfisoated by Massachusetts authorities with no compensation and awarded to the patriot who had lost the ship.
