  Villalobos
Ruy Lopez de Villalobos—a 16th century Spanish navigator and explorer—was given command of a force sent out by the Viceroy of Mexico to explore unknown islands in the southern seas of the Pacific.
Captured by the United States Army along with near-sisters General Alava and Quiros, Villalobos was acquired by the Navy on 21 February 1900 and commissioned at Cavite on 5 March 1900, Lt. Edward Simpson in command.
Villalobo remained deployed on the Yangtze for the next 23 years, through various reorganizations and designations of what eventually became known as the Yangtze Patrol of the United States Asiatic Fleet.
