Henry P. Coburn Esq. 1790 - 1854 Massachusetts & Indiana 6th Plate DAGUERREOTYPE Photo Son and Grandson of REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETS! Circa 1852 PRE CIVIL War Antique Photography Revolutionary War Veteran Lineage Image Henry Peter Coburn Esquire 1790 - 1854 REVOLUTION TIE-INS Peter Coburn (Grandfather) commanded a Dracut Company and led them to Lexington April 19, 1775. After seven days' service, he returned home, and when, in June, the men were again called out, he, with his Company of Dracut men, were present at the Battle of Bunker Hill. He is said to have been the last man to speak to Gen. Warren before he fell. As the Americans were about to retreat a British officer sprang upon the breastworks and waved his sword, encouraging his men. Capt. Peter, hurling a stone, knocked him backwards, and then followed his men in the retreat. Captain Peter Coburn died on 08 May 1813 aged 74 years and was buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Dracut.Peter Coburn (Father), son of Capt. Peter Coburn, is named in the "Minute Roll of Capt. Peter Coburns Co. in Col. Bridges Regiment at Battle of Bunker HIll June 17 1775 and in the siege of the British Army in Boston in the Autumn of 1775." Peter Coburn, Jr., was the youngest member of the Company, being only ten years old. His presence was due to the fact that after his father's company had marched, he ran away from home and joined them while on the road to Cambridge.
