thank you i didnt want to go off topic in the chapter discussion.
anyway, about thequestion you raise, i think that jozu and marco can infact be a part of his original crew due the fact the spoke like older people calling the other youngsters when shanks arrived, they seemed to know him personally too. about the other crewmates i think that save for ace all of the other fleet captains are part of the original crew, the others joined with time. i do believe that when roger ruled the sees both crews were kinda like luffy's and thats also why people see roger in luffy.
Dingoes ate them?
I'd like to propose a name like "Whitebeard pirates discussion thread" which would really be better for this kind of thread.
I would say that a part of them has died in battle or of old age and part of them have retired, probably living on some of the islands controlled by Whitebeard.
I don't think anyone is in jail, since we know how Whitebeard feels about that.
So, there were probably pirates that were older than Whitebeard in his crew, the same way that Luffy isn't the oldest. So, some of them could have died naturally I suppose.
But as for those that have supposedly died in battle. I don't think the period of stability was achieved easily. After Roger's death there was probably a lot of fighting, probably with other pirates just as much as with marines. A lot of blood was spilled, and after some time, after lot of fighting, 4 of the pirates rose over the others, and took control over most of the New World.
I'm guessing Whitebeard lost some men in the fighting after Roger's death.
I really don't think that roger ruled anything
I think that people started calling him Pirate King cuz he did the impossible, well he traveled around the gloge something that had never been done before.
and I think that they were different types of pirates
I don't realy see WB with a small crew, well maebe smaler but not like Ruffy's

Ups, did I say that?
Wait, I didn't say that Roger ruled anything.
What I said was that pirates fought some time after Roger's death, and the 4 of them rose above the others, each of them ruling part of the New World, WG calling them Yonkou because of that.
Also, when I was comparing Whitebeard with Luffy, I wasn't comparing the size of the crew, just to make it clear.
AND about the thread name I've got no Idea of how to change that.
razh i said that roger ruled the seas.
kal-elh try editing your first post.
also another thing taht might have happened:
seeing how one of the yonkous is a former jolly roger pirate i think that after roger died people thought to themselves that they want the title of pirate king next and defected (probably with WB's permission cuz if not their dead) to create their own crews. and as i said before some of the original crew are still here, seeing what their DF is it is possible that they are even older then WB himself.
They did say that the title of 2nd division commander has been missing for a while. Maybe he/she got killed in battle.
I think that all of the other crews that joined in the war were old crewmates of WB and leftto make a crew of there own
regarding the second division captain seat I think it belonged to Mihawk
(WB sait to Shanks that he remembers his duels with Mihawk - to me it implies that he was on his crew oderwise how could he have seen that it's not like there is a place for those to take place while people hang around to watch and enjoy the fight )
shoooting ur theory down Kal, imo i dont think Mihawke has really ever seen WB before.
1st the way they tested eachother, Mihawke Id expect wouldnt need to test WB if he'd ever seen WB in action before.
2nd they didn't exchange any words between eachother of familiarity.
This shanks and mihawke duel must have been quite a legend that made widespread news for the whole world to know about or something, like it might have decimated an area up like Black Beards vs Aces fight.
Also that pirate king stuff, didn't Rayleigh say that Rogers only got the Pirate King title when he was about to die? Sounded to me like it was a title they put on his death bed, he didn't really LIVE as the pirate king, but he's remembered as a pirate king.
On topic tho, maybe nothing ever did happen to WB's crew mates, Im gathering your using examples like Rayleigh to judge how old other pirates from Rogers days would look, but maybe Rayleigh was old even for Rogers crew, if rookies from Rogers days are ones like Shanks and Buggy, Mihawke maybe, perhaps Crocodile, even Moria and Kuma, Sengoku, and none of them look all too old.
Maybe most of the division captains are original crewmates and Whitebeard took them all in young, I mean he's quite big on his "children" theme.
Whitebeard might just be unhealthy, and Sengoku doesn't look that old.

He just says that he wants to know how far beheind he realy is.
On the issue of WB Pirates and former crewmates, division captains, I think it's just as Razh said, a number of things could have happened to them.
I think the likes of Marco and Joz have been around WB for a few decades since they both look well into their 30s.
