Besides her being listed as a ship of the Union Navy during the American Civil War, only two facts concerning this vessel have been found: first that, at some unknown date, her name was changed from A. Childs to simply Childs; and, secondly, that her hull was sold at Mound City, Ill., on 29 March 1865 for $1,625.
