Yes, great point!As a student of the American Revolution when I hear Josiah Quincy my first response is the lawyer along with John Adams who defended the British soldiers involved with the Boston Massacre. He was Josiah Quincy II. You have his son Josiah Quincy III but that is still a huge letter for a collection.
Congratulations on the purchase.
