John Contee entered the United States Navy, and, for gallant conduct, received a vote of thanks from the Maryland Legislature, which presented him with a sword and medals. He retired from the navy with rank of lieutenant, and died November 15, 1839, at his home, "Pleasant Prospect," which he devised to his son John.
