John, disguised as a fisherman, rowed a skiff to Nantasket (up the beach from Cohasset). He joined Sarah and the children in Cohasset where they hid until the British left Boston later in the war. The family had fled with very little in the way of belongings, and had only each other. John was never caught, but his life was changed. A traitor to the Crown, his property was seized and he lived as a fugitive, in hiding and suffering, until his death nearly twelve years later. He died at age 51 and is buried in Boston.
