Andrew Pacetty is described as "a Spanish youth known to be a foreigner" in a charge brought against Customs Inspector Archibald Clark of Camden County In November 1821. Clark failed to report Pacetty's origins, and illegally hired him at reduced wages of 12 1/2 ¢ per month. Clark is accused of charging the US Government his full pay.
A similar fraud charge is filed against Clark in March 1822, when witnesses attest that Pacetty is a Spaniard who is occasionally a fisherman and makes cigars. In the deposition, colleagues say that his language suggests that he is foreign to the United States, and that he is the son of a Spanish woman in Saint Marys.
Joseph Arnow takes off a piece of Pacetty's ear in a scuffle "entirely by accident". The fight requires testimony to a justice of the peace in May 1825.
