Eleazer Mather, Jr., M.D.
(1753-1837) was one of the five sons of Dr. Eleazer Mather, Sr. All five of the brothers became physicians. He came to Ohio in 1822 as one of the early settlers and became the first doctor in Boston Township, Summit Co., Ohio. The original house that he lived in until his death, though extensive remodeled, is still standing.
