Central Burying Ground Cemetery
Suffolk County,

March 20, 1739
September 29, 1809

Ebenezer DORR III was one of the riders sent out by Dr. Joseph WARREN to warm Massachusetts that "the British Are Coming!. He did the exact same actions as Paul Revere but thanks to Henry Wadsworth LONGFELLOW Paul Revere gets almost all the credit despite the fact multiple riders including Ebenezer DORR III also rode to warn the colonies of the impending British attack.

The mother of his 12 children born between 1762 & 1781 was Abigail CUNNINGHAM 1739 - 1798. Elizabeth FLINN was the 2nd wife who he married 12 January 1800 in Boston, Suffolk Co., MA.
