Thanks to Tammy Orr, Marcie Cimfl, Sharon Rhodes Miller, & Layla Kauffman, for their generous donations to help with the genealogy research. I also want the thank Mary Harrell-Sesniak for her input in finding databases in which to search. While looking for the parents of William Rhodes, (1745-1825), we are following several different locations with some results. Much of the information isn’t indexed so one has to methodically go through each database in hopes find something of use. Though we haven’t hit the jackpot yet, but not giving up.

Below is the genealogy research log results:

Samuel Whittemore, the Revolutionary War’s 78-year-old Badass

On April 19, 1775, after Whittemore killed three of the redcoats, other British soldiers left 78-year-old Samuel Whittemore in a pool of blood alongside a stone wall in Menotomy, Mass. As they retreated from the Battles of Lexington and Concord, they had shot the old farmer in the face. Then they bayoneted him at least six times and clubbed him, apparently, to death, but this is not the end.

Whittemore was born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, in 1696, the second son by that name of Samuel Whittemore and Hannah Rix, also of Charlestown. He served as a private in Col. Jeremiah Moulton’s Third Massachusetts Regiment, where he fought in King George’s War (1744–48).[2] He was involved in the capture of the French stronghold, the Fortress of Louisbourg in 1745. He moved to Menotomy, Massachusetts (present-day Arlington). Recent sources suggest he fought in the French and Indian War (1754–63) at the age of 64, once again assisting in the capture of the Fortress of Louisbourg, and later in a military expedition against Chief Pontiac in 1763. None of them offer documentation to support such claims, though a nineteenth century reference mentions that he had served as a “Captain of Dragoons.”


Battles of Lexington and Concord


On April 19, 1775, British forces were returning to Boston from the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the opening engagements of the war. On their march they were continually shot at by American militiamen.
Whittemore was in his fields when he spotted an approaching British relief brigade under Earl Percy, sent to assist the retreat. Whittemore loaded his musket and ambushed the British Grenadiers of the 47th Regiment of Foot from behind a nearby stone wall, killing one soldier. He then drew his dueling pistols, killed a second grenadier and mortally wounded a third. By the time Whittemore had fired his third shot, a British detachment had reached his position; Whittemore drew his sword and attacked. He was subsequently shot in the face, bayoneted numerous times, and left for dead in a pool of blood. He was found by colonial forces, trying to load his musket to resume the fight. He was taken to Dr. Cotton Tufts of Medford, who perceived no hope for his survival. However, Whittemore recovered and lived another 18 years until dying of natural causes at the age of 98
