Was delegate from C. to the first provincial Congress so called in 1775, and was a leading member of the town committees of safety, correspondence and inspection. When Concord had raised two hundred men he was appointed muster master, was a participant in the engagement incident to the battles of Concord and Lexington, and at that time had a large amount of the public stores in his dwelling. Mrs. WHITNEY use to relate that on the day of the "Concord fight," she was being conveyed out of the way of danger with several of her children, when a bullet passed through the carriage, grazing the head of one of the boys. He removed to Castine about 1791, the year of its incorporation, where he successfully conducted many important enterprises and accumulated a handsome fortune. He was a man of great integrity of character, and of an enterprising spirit, but is represented to have been of a restless disposition. He was of fine personal appearance, of large size, and dignified in his bearing. His mind was of a thoughtful cast and he cultivated a taste for literature, accumulating for the day quite a valu- able library. In politics he was a federalist. He d. May 29, 1808; res.
