Pirates of Devil's Cove (UN-C-739)
However, for a pirate crew to continue to add to their fame and wealth even after their deaths is the sole claim of one particular pirate crew of the 1660's.
Though history has long ignored them, the pirates of Devil's Cove, under the captaincy of the villainous William Jones were arguably the most successful pirate crew of the 17th century and the most vicious.
This murderous crew carried out an 11-year reign of terror on the seas off the West Indies, and hundreds lay murdered in their wake.
The following report explains how the crew of the Bloody Molly were so resilient they didn't even let a small matter of being dead stand in their way of accumulating riches.
