See Robert Gray entry.

Born in Boston about 1745, Kendrick was killed in Hawaii by accident in 1800 when an English captain fired a charge of grap-shot from a cannon to return Kendrick's salute. After privateering in the Revolutionary War, Kendrick had sailed with Captain Robert Gray to the Pacific Northwest. He later sailed to the South Seas and Oceania, trading in sandalwood with China.
