Abstract: Papers relating to American Revolutionary officer Jeremiah Fogg, his wife Lydia Hill Fogg, and their family.
Major Jeremiah Fogg, Jr. (1749–1808) was from Kensington, New Hampshire, the son of Rev. Jeremiah Fogg (1712-1789; Harvard AB 1730) and Elizabeth B. Parsons Fogg (1718-1779). He received an AB from Harvard College in 1768 and an AM in 1771. Fogg practiced law before the American Revolution in Newburyport, Massachusetts. He served as adjutant of the 2d New Hampshire Regiment in 1775 and was appointed a second lieutenant and quartermaster in the 8th Continental Infantry Regiment in January 1776. He became paymaster of the 2d New Hampshire Regiment in November 1776, serving in that post until October 1779, and was promoted to captain in October 1777. Fogg transferred to the 1st New Hampshire Regiment in March 1782 and left the army in June of the following year. He married Lydia Hill Fogg (1750-1847) in 1785. Fogg also served at various times during the war as brigade major and aide-de-camp. Fogg's journal of Maj. Gen. John Sullivan's expedition against the Six Nations in the summer of 1779 was published as Journal of Major Jeremiah Fogg during the Expedition of Gen. Sullivan in 1779, Against the Western Indians (Exeter, N.H., 1879). [Source: Founders Online, National Archives].
