A patriot of the American revolution, was born in Roxbury, near Boston, in 1741. In June, 1775, the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, of which he was then President, made him Major-General of their forces. At the battle of Bunker Hill, he was slain within a few yards of the breastwork; his loss was deeply felt and regretted. In 1776, his remains were removed from the battle ground and interred in Boston. [P. 22.]
