    Bethel Mather was born in Torrington, CT on Oct 6, 1771 to parents, Charles and Ruth (Kelsey) Mather. His father was a farmer in Connecticut. Very little is known of his mother other than she lived a long life, dying at the age of approximately 88 years old. When Bethel was of age, he moved to Amenia, New York. It was there, he met and married Miss Huldah Smith and moved to Schaghticoke, New York to ply his trade in the mercantle business. He soon bought a farm and like his father before him, became a farmer. He was described as a man with "more than ordinary abilities, of great firmness and decision and energy of character." (Obituary from the Horace Mather's book entitled "Lineage of Rev. Richard Mather")
    Col. Bethel Mather and wife, Huldah Smith, had 14 children. Some of them are buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
