mith's Address, pp. 37-39. Jason Winship, son of Jason Winship (who was drowned Dec. 26, 1762), was baptized June 28, 1730. Jabez Wyman, son of John Wyman, was born at Woburn July 24, 1710, but had long resided here. The two last named were slain at Cooper's tavern. They had come up to inquire the news, and were surprised there. The landlady, Mrs. Cooper, who was just mixing flip at the bar, with her husband fled to the cellar. Ibid., p. 45. A month afterwards, Benjamin Cooper and Rachel Cooper deposed that in the afternoon of the 19th day of April last, the King's regular troops under the command of General Gage, upon their return from blood and slaughter, which they had made at Lexington and Concord, fired more than one hundred bullets into the house where we dwell, through doors, windows, &c.; then a number of them entered the house where we and two aged gentlemen were all unarmed; we escaped for our lives into the cellar; the two aged gentlemen were immediately most barbaro
e tavern, by the British, who entered the house. The following deposition gives an account of the event: Cambridge, May 19, 1775. We, Benjamin Cooper and Rachel Cooper, both of Cambridge, aforesaid, of lawful age, testify and say that in the afternoon of the 19th day of April last, the King's regular troops, under the commandbsolutely certain; but take them to be Jabez Wyman, who used to work for Mr. Cooke, and Jason Winship, killed in the tavern that Captain Adams formerly owned, now Cooper at the corner. Wyman was certainly killed there, and I think Winship, but am not certain they were unarmed; but it is likely enough they were; they were drinkingguard and left for dead, being the one wounded man of Menotomy mentioned in the lists of the American losses on that day. He was struck down nearly in the rear of Cooper's tavern, about where on Russell Park a monumental tablet has recently been erected (1878), with this inscription: Near this spot Samuel Whittemore, then eighty y
unded northeast on a road leading to part of Lexington. Jabez Wyman and his brother-in-law Jason Winship were both killed by the British in Cooper's Tavern, in Menotomy, on 19 Apr. 1775, the site where the Arlington House now stands. The troops fired more than a hundred bullets into the house on the afternoon of that day; then a number of them entered and slew the two men named above, stabbing them through in many places, breaking their skulls, scattering their brains, &c.—Benjamin and Rachel Cooper's Deposition. 4.
