Josiah /2 Quincy "The Patriot"

M, b. 23 February 1744, d. 26 April 1775
     Josiah /2 Quincy "The Patriot". Lawyer and political leader. He was born on 23 February 1744 in Boston, Massachusetts. He was the son of Josiah /1 Quincy and Hannah Sturgis. He graduated from Harvard, A.B., 1763, A.M., 1766, when he delivered his master's oration "Patriotism," his first oration in English, in which he demonstrated unusual power as an orator. He studied law under Oxenbridge Thacher in Boston and practised in Boston, 1766-73. His political views rendering him obnoxious to the Supreme Court of the province, his name was omitted in the distribution of the honours of the gown.
On March 5, 1770, the difficulties between citizens of Boston and the British soldiers, known as the Boston Massacre, occurred, and the citizens were clamorous for vengeance against Captain Preston and the accused soldiers. Although sympathizing with the citizens, Mr. Quincy was selected by Captain Preston to defend his cause and that of the soldiers in the courts, against the earnest remonstrance of his father. This difficult task he shared with John Adams, who joined him as elder counsel. The trial began on 24 October 1770, and concluded with the acquittal of Captain Preston six days later. Two of his men, however, were found guilty of manslaughter and branded in the hand. The popular resentment against Quincy and Adams was intense and publicly manifested whenever they appeared in the streets of Boston. In 1773 illness necessitated a change of climate, and he took passage by sea to Charleston, S.C., Feb. 8, 1773. On his return he journeyed through North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, being much benefited in health. In November 1773, the British tea ships arrived in Boston Harbor, and the Committee of Correspondence held a meeting at the Old South Meeting house on 16 December 1773, where Quincy and Samuel Adams spoke against the obnoxious measures of the British government. While the speaking proceeded, forty or fifty men, disguised as Indians, marched past the Meeting house to take possession of the tea ships and cast three hundred and forty chests of tea into the bay. As they were passing, Mr. Quincy paused a moment and then said: "I see the clouds which now rise thick and fast upon our horizon, the thunders roll, the lightnings play, and to that God who rides on the whirlwind and directs the storm, I commit my country."
On 28 September 1774, he embarked on board the Boston Packet on a confidential mission to London in behalf of the patriot colonies. He arrived in London on 16 November 1774, and had conferences with Dr. Franklin, Jonathan Williams, Jr., Lord North and Lord Dartmouth. In his appeal for justice he was sustained by Lords Chatham and Selden, and his influence in the British councils was apparent. His health again failed, and in obedience to the wishes of his political friends, but contrary to the advice of his physician, he set sail for America, 16 March 1775.
He is the author of the articles signed "Hyperion" (1767), and "Tertius and Nubibus," "Edward Sexby," and "Marchmout Nedham" in Edes and Gill's Gazette (1774-75); Draught of Instructions to the Boston Representatives in May, 1772, and Report of a Committee Chosen by the Inhabitants of Petersham, 4th January, 1773 (1773); Observations on the Act of Parliament commonly called the Boston Port Bill, with Thoughts on Civil Society and Standing Armies (1774). Josiah /2 Quincy "The Patriot" married Abigail Phillips, daughter of Hon. William Phillips and Abigail Bromfield, on 4 October 1769 in Boston (Oct. 26, 1769 according to Sprague).1,2 Josiah /2 Quincy "The Patriot" made a will on 28 February 1774.1 He died on 26 April 1775 near Cape-Ann of tuberculosis on board ship within sight of Boston at the age of 31.

Probate on his will was granted on 31 July 1781 Executor William Phillips.
