Joseph Warren Revere (Fifty Years with the Revere Copper Co.)


 Joseph Warren Revere1


Joseph Warren Revere was born in Boston on April 30, 1777, and was the son of Paul Revere and Rachel Walker. In his youth, he was a member of the Boston Light Infantry; as Daniel TV Huntoon writes, "those who knew him at the age of ninety could well understand the commendation bestowed on him and his companions by General Knox, when they marched up State Street in 1798." At the time of his death, he was the last surviving member of the original Infantry. In 1801, he became a business partner with his father, and maintained this partnership until his father's death in 1818. In 1824, he sold water privileges, land, and real estate to the Boston Manufacturing Company. He was one of the incorporators, as well as the first president, of the Revere Copper Company in 1828, which he continued to be until his death. In 1833, he served on Boston's board of aldermen; at one point, he was a representative for its General Court. He was the father of Edward HR Revere, whom he outlived by six years. He died on October 12, 1868.
