Hinman, Elisha 1734-1807 Naval officer; born in Stonington, Conn., March 9, 1734; went to sea at the age of fourteen years, and was a captain at nineteen, sailing to Europe and the Indies. He entered the navy of the Revolution, under Hopkins, in 1776, and was one of the first captains appointed by Congress. He was a very active officer. Captured when in command of the Alfred, thirty-two guns, he was taken to England, whence he escaped to France, and cruised successfully after his return, in 1779-80. President Adams offered him the command of the Constitution in 1798, but on account of his age he declined. From that time until 1802 he was engaged in the revenue service.
