Whaling captain Matthew Stetson took the money and ran in Valparaiso in 1845. He subsequently returned to his family in Fairhaven, MA in 1847 and was arrested. I would like to know if there is any family lore about why he did this, where he went, and why he later decided to return, since most captains who did this did not return.
