The history of the Macedonian had more twists than I indicated (should read fully before writing). The frigate was broken up in 1828, but the keel was used to build the second Macedonian, put in service in 1836. It was the rebuilt ship that carried famine relief to Ireland, transporting 12000 barrels.
