InfoJosiah Quincy, Jr. (1802-1882 and pronounced /ˈkwɪnzi/) was mayor of Boston (December 11, 1845 - January 1, 1849), as was his father Josiah Quincy III (mayor 1823-1828) and grandson Josiah Quincy (mayor 1895-1899). He was the author of Figures in the Past (1882). As a member of the Massachusetts State Legislature in 1837, he was instrumental in the establishment of the Massachusetts Board of Education. He built the Josiah Quincy Mansion in 1848.[1]

His brother Edmund (1808-1877) was a prominent abolitionist, and author of the biography of his father and of a romance, Wensley (1854). His sister Eliza Susan (1798-1884) was her father's secretary and the biographer of her mother. Josiah Quincy (1802-1882) had two sons — Josiah Phillips (1829-1910), a lawyer, who wrote, besides some verse, The Protection of Majorities (1876) and Double Taxation in Massachusetts (1889); and Samuel Miller (1833-1887), who practised law, wrote on legal subjects, served in the Union army during the Civil War, and was breveted brigadier-general of volunteers in 1865. Josiah Quincy (1859-1919), a son of Josiah Phillips Quincy, was prominent in the Democratic party in Massachusetts, and was mayor of Boston in 1895-1899.
