Death: Oct. 29, 1775
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Abijah White, a descendant of Pilgrim Peregrine White, was a Selectman of the Marshfield in 1774. He became Marshfield's representative in the Province legislature in 1775. He was wounded in a battle at sea near Boston Light while fighting alongside British forces. The battle occurred on July 30, 1775. The British forces, aided by Marshfield Tories, were attempting to repair Boston Light. They were attacked by Major Benjamin Tupper leading 20 whale boats and 200 Patriot forces. The Patriot forces shot Representative Abijah White in the back. He died not long afterwards.

A cenotaph in his memory shares the stone that marks the grave of his wife.
