Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships History: The first Rehoboth (SP-384), built in 1912 as a fishing boat by W. G. Abbott, Milford, Del., was acquired from W. C. Lofland, Lewes, Del., for service during World War I and commissioned at Philadelphia on 12 May 1917, Lt. (jg.) W. M. Bertrand, USNRF, in command.

Acquired originally for section patrol duty, Rehoboth was designated for distant service in June and, on 14 August, headed for Boston. Thence, at the end of the month, she continued on across the Atlantic. Steaming via the Azores, she reached Brest, France, on 18 September and began operations as a unit of Division 12, Patrol Force. On 4 October, however, while on escort duty, her hull began to leak. Her crew, unable to control the flooding, was taken off and Rehoboth was sunk by H.M.S. Castor.
