How many of the founding fathers were lawyers?
There are many different occupations of the framers of the constitution like soldiers, planters, educators, ministers, physicians, financiers, and merchants. But of all of these occupations being a lawyer was the most popular. 35 out of the 55 were lawyers. Many of the framers of the constitution actually did more than one of these jobs. All of the framers were educated in their own ways. Some went to law school, some went to medical school, and some didn't even go to college! They learned all they needed to know from their up bringing. Some had fathers that were very interested in politics and taught them everything they needed to know.

Several of the founding fathers were lawyers, but the best known was John Adams.
Many people would have different definitions of what determined the title of Founding Father. When I did extensive research I came up with seven key Founding Fathers that were… instrumental in establishing the United States and were leaders in the early years of the republic. Recently I was gratified to find to credible sources that confirm these seven. The Franklin Mint just came out with a commemorative set of coins on the Founding Fathers...the same seven. Richard B. Morris has written many fine books on the early U.S years. One of them is titled: Seven Who Shaped Our Destiny : The Founding Fathers As Revolutionaries. The seven are: George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. My research shows proof that George Washington was #1and Alexander Hamilton was #2.
The Founding Fathers were the political leaders who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, or who participated in framing and adopting the U.S. Constitution in 1787-1…788, putting the new government into effect.
Father Serra found 9 missions. 1 one of them is san francisco de asis
Quite literally, they founded the United States of America. They were the leaders of the American Revolution. They expressed people's frustration and resentment with British …rule. They acted on that anger to declare independence and lead the country through eight years of war to achieve it. They wrote the constutution and persuaded people to accept and ratify it. They formed the first government under Washington and served in the first congresses. They wrote the Bill of Rights.
He found nine missions.Father Fermin Francisco de Lasuen Founded Nine MissionsFather Fermin Francisco de Lasuen was born on June 7, 1736 at Vitoria in Cantabria, Spain. He bec…ame a Franciscan priest in 1752 and volunteered for the American missions in1758. He was described as a man of symmetrical build with light, somewhat ruddy skin, a pockmarked face, dark eyes and dark, curly hair. He arrived in Mexico in 1761 and was sent to lower (Baja) California in 1768. In 1773, he again moved to "upper" California, arriving in San Diego on August 30. Father Lasuen stayed in San Diego until June 1775 when he moved to Monterey. Lasuen was unhappy in California. He often asked to leave and wanted to become the personal chaplain of the commander at the presidio in Monterey, but after a long negotiation he finally refused the job. In 1775, Lasuen and Father Gregorio Amurrio were appointed the first missionaries at Mission San Juan Capistrano. When they arrived, he said Mass, establishing the mission, but he did not remain there for long. When news arrived that the mission in San Diego had been attacked and Father Luis Jayme had been murdered, the soldiers and missionaries hurried back to San Diego. He built a new church there and enlarged the mission compound. In the summer and fall of 1776, the missions were re-opened and Father Lasuen went with Father Serra to San Luis Obispo, where he stayed until 1777 when he was appointed minister of Mission San Diego. He served there until he became Father-President of the missions in 1785, after Father Serra died. He then moved to the Carmel Mission and stayed there until he died. He was Father-President for eighteen years, and he personally founded nine missions in California. He also expanded many older missions and he was responsible for much of the missions as we know them today. Because of his office, Father Lasuen met a number of people who wrote about him. Captain George Vancouver described him in 1792 as having gentle manners and a placid face, Alejandro Malaspina praised his good manners in 1791 and Charles Chapman described him as a worthy successor to Father Serra. Father Serra himself called Lasuen as a religious man of exceptional example. Lasuen never adjusted well to life in California and he repeated asked for retirement or transfer, stating that only obedience kept him here. Even as he grew older, he kept asking for a transfer or retirement. He never left California, though, and he died at the Carmel Mission on June 26, 1803. He was buried in the sanctuary there.
14 Presidents have been Mason's. Of these were Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison. If you compare the constitution of the United States to the Masonic constitution you will… find some things that are alike. Washington was buried with a Masonic funeral and was past Grand Master and Master of his lodge.
