    !Doctor Samuel Mather graduated at Harvard College in 1698, and was

    license is as follows:

    (L.S.) Count. ss.
    At the General Assembly Holden at Hartford, May 14, 1702, upon the
    recommendation of the Reverend Samuel Mather, Doctor Thomas Hooker, and
    Mr. John Fisk, this Assembly doth license Mr. Samuel Mather, Jr., of the
    town of Windsor, to be a Practitioner of Physick and Chyrurgy in this
    Colonie.
    In testimony that the above written is a true copy, I have caused
    the seal of his Majestie's Colonie to be hereunto assigned and subscribed.
    ELEAZER KIMBERLY, Sec'y.

    "After a life of professional usefulness, during which he held various
    civil and military offices of trust and honor, he died Feb. 6, 1745, in
    the 68th year of his age. He was the father of Mr. Nathaniel Mather of
    Windsor (who lived upon the island), who was the father of Elijah Mather;
    and also of Colonel Oliver Mather, late of Windsor."
    "Doctor Mather studied with Doctor Thomas Hooker of Hartford. He was the
    contemporary and intimate friend of Eliot, and was greatly distinguished
    as a scholar and physician. At the time of his death no man stood so high
    in the public confidence or had so extensive a medical practice in the
    State as Doctor Mather. He visited every section of the country in a
    circuit of forty or fifty miles as a counsellor, and was as greatly
    venerated for many excellent virtues as for science and skill as a
    physician. He married Abigail Grant, a descendant of Matthew Grant, the
    emigrant. His second wife was Hannah Buckland, grand-daughter of Thomas
    Buckland, the emigrant. He left a number of descendants who were
    distinguished men, amongst others his grandson, Doctor Charles Mather,
    formerly of East Windsor, but more recently of Hartford, who was a
    distinguished and successful accoucher. Doctor Charles Mather died in
    Hartford in 1823, at the age of 81 years.."
