    BIOGRAPHY: Deacon Thomas Hichborn also ran the Hichborn Wharf during the
    revolution. In February of 1743 Paul Revere parents and his aunts, Mary
    Marrett and Frances Douglas (daughter of Thomas, Jr.) sold their shares to the
    Hichborn Wharf to this Thomas.
    Boston records show that Thomas and Hannah were remarried in 1734 but the
    record was changed later to show that the 1730 date was the date for their
    listed intentions of marriage.
    Thomas and Isanna belong to the Brick Church (Unitarian Church) and all their
    children were baptized there.
    Thomas was with Paul Revere at the meeting to discuss where to hand the lamps
    in North Boston when the British arrived.
    According to The Daughter of the American Revolution, Thomas was a member of
    the Boston Committee of Correspondence and Safety.
    Thomas was listed as Fire Warden in 1769 and as a Scavenger (One who cleans
    the streets of cattle) in 1763 & 1765. (Seybolt's: Town Officials of Colonial
    Boston). In the town records of Boston he's also listed as an informer of deer
    for the incoming year.
    Thomas is buried at the Old Granary Burial Ground, alongside of Paul Revere,
    who died at the age of 51. "Mother Goose", family member and other patriots.
    His timbstone reads:
    Dean'n Thomas Hichborn
