An account of the life of Jeremiah Lee (1721-1775) and the genealogy of his family. Lee was a wealthy merchant and an ardent American patriot, serving as a member of the Committee of Safety, and for twenty-five years Colonel of Marblehead's town militia. He imported weapons and ammunition from Spain in preparation for the war with England, smuggling them out of Boston to nearby caches. He died from the effects of exposure, having fled to a field from the Black Horse Tavern in Concord, where he had met with John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and a few others as the Provincial Congress. They had been warned by Paul Revere in his historic ride, but Lee did not leave soon enough and had to hide as the British soldiers marched through towards Lexington. He was much lamented.
His mansion in Marblehead is today a National Historic Landmark and museum.
