158. Dr. Charles WHITMAN.[4] Born in 1731 in Stow, Middlesex Co. Mass.

Dr. Charles Whitman was a man of great dignity of manner and very particular in his dress. He always wore a long dark green coat with silver buttons, silver knee buckles, and his hair in a cue, of which he was always very exacting in the braiding thereof. He always had to have the hair braided a particular way and always with fresh ribbons which had to be three and one half yards long. During his last sickness, his daughter, weary of the care of the braid, cut it off; an act for which he never forgave her. He had a slight speech impediment which caused him to speak with great deliberation. When he would prescribe for a patient, he would speak in a formula such as, "I think, madame, upon the account, upon the account of it, that you need so-and-so." HIs first wife died in 1785 and the next year he married Catherine Davis, the widow of Rev. Dr. Swift of Billerica. During the last years of his life, his mind became impaired and his propperty was placed in the hands of a committee by Order of the Court. His son, Dr. Charles, Jr., was appointed his guardian. He died in 1807 aged 76, and his wife survived him many years.
