Born at Sea

Classification: Query
My g.g.grandfather may have been born at sea. At least his son in a 1910 census reported that his father was "Born At Sea" His name was Isaiah Mcdowell and possibly born abt 1795. I am looking for his birth and parents.

How do you search for some one born at sea? Do you put the birth place as the country of orgin, the United States or does the ship they are on determine the birth place.

I could not find his birth in Pennsylvania and think this may be the reason.

Thanks Steve
