    THOMAS GOODWIN WELLS, many years a well known
    physician of Hopkinton, was born in Lebanon, November
    17, 1779, being a son of Thomas Goodwin Wells and Elizabeth
    Goodwin. The elder Wells was a farmer and weaver,
    like a number of his neighbors who came from Connecticut.
    When a young man, the subject of this sketch quitted

    the farm and read medicine with Dr. Phineas Parkhurat, of
    Lebanon, and subsequently attended medical and surgical
    lectures at Hanover. His first practice was in Sutton. In
    1807, he came to Hopkinton, locating on the place now
    occupied by Dea. David Tucker, in the west part of the
    town. Subsequently he moved to Bosoawen, where he
    practised for a time, and then he returned and lived in
    various places in West Hopkinton, one of them being the
    Lazaro Currier spot, where he built the present house.
    Afterwards he spent a number of years in Contoocook, and
    finally moved to Hopkinton village, occupying the house
    that stood many years on the site of the present summer
    cottage of Horace G. Chase. Dr. Wells was considered a
    superior surgeon for his time. . He sometimes received students
    of medicine into Ms office. One of his professional
    pupils was Dr. Moses Long, who practised in Concord,
    Goffstown, Enfield, Warner, and Rochester, N. Y. Another
    was Dr. Henry Lyman, who practised in Warner. While
    residing in Boscawen, Dr. Wells, being an intimate acquaintance
    of Daniel Webster, sometimes joined him in
    pleasure excursions. One day they went out hunting squirrels
    with a man named Clark, who wore a gray suit of
    clothes. Clark climbed a tree, and Mr. Webster, mistaking
    a portion of his gray clothing for the squirrel, fired,
    wounding him. The accident caused Mr. Webster much
    distress. His generosity caused him to make Clark a number
    of presents ; and although Dr. Wells probably charged
    nothing for attending professionally to the wound, the
    cause of it gave him a keg of oysters, a rare treat for those
    times.
    In 1802, Thomas G. Wells married Lucinda Lyman, of
    Lebanon, daughter of Elias Lyman and Ruth Griswold.
    They had eight children, - Thomas Goodwin, born 1804, in
    Sutton ; Lucinda Lyman, born 1806, in Sutton ; Phineas
    Parkhurst, 1 808 ; Marcia Emeline, 1810; Edwin Ruthwin,
    1814; Ruth Lyman, 1816; Elias Lyman, 1818; Rodwell
    Emerson, 1820, - all born in Hopkinton.
    Dr. Wells died May 2, 1849 ; Mrs. Wells, April 7, 1860.
    EDWIN R. WELLS, the son of Dr. Thomas G. Wells and
    Lucinda Lyman, was born in Hopkinton, October ii7,
    1814. In early life, he attended Hopkinton academy. He
    was many years a merchant, residing in Illinois from 1835

    to 1840 ; in Pittsburgh, Pa., from 1840 to 1850 ; in California,
    from 1850 to 1851 ; in Walpole, from 1851 to 1859 ;
    in Dalton, Ga., from 1864 to 1881. In 1881, he returned
    to Hopkinton and pursued farming, building the house now
    occupied by Charles J. Conner.
    Mr. Wells died March 20, 1882.

    THOMAS GOODWIN WELLS, many years a well known
    physician of Hopkinton, was born in Lebanon, November
    17, 1779, being a son of Thomas Goodwin Wells and Elizabeth
    Goodwin. The elder Wells was a farmer and weaver,
    like a number of his neighbors who came from Connecticut.
    When a young man, the subject of this sketch quitted

    the farm and read medicine with Dr. Phineas Parkhurat, of
    Lebanon, and subsequently attended medical and surgical
    lectures at Hanover. His first practice was in Sutton. In
    1807, he came to Hopkinton, locating on the place now
    occupied by Dea. David Tucker, in the west part of the
    town. Subsequently he moved to Bosoawen, where he
    practised for a time, and then he returned and lived in
    various places in West Hopkinton, one of them being the
    Lazaro Currier spot, where he built the present house.
    Afterwards he spent a number of years in Contoocook, and
    finally moved to Hopkinton village, occupying the house
    that stood many years on the site of the present summer
    cottage of Horace G. Chase. Dr. Wells was considered a
    superior surgeon for his time. . He sometimes received students
    of medicine into Ms office. One of his professional
    pupils was Dr. Moses Long, who practised in Concord,
    Goffstown, Enfield, Warner, and Rochester, N. Y. Another
    was Dr. Henry Lyman, who practised in Warner. While
    residing in Boscawen, Dr. Wells, being an intimate acquaintance
    of Daniel Webster, sometimes joined him in
    pleasure excursions. One day they went out hunting squirrels
    with a man named Clark, who wore a gray suit of
    clothes. Clark climbed a tree, and Mr. Webster, mistaking
    a portion of his gray clothing for the squirrel, fired,
    wounding him. The accident caused Mr. Webster much
    distress. His generosity caused him to make Clark a number
    of presents ; and although Dr. Wells probably charged
    nothing for attending professionally to the wound, the
    cause of it gave him a keg of oysters, a rare treat for those
    times.
    In 1802, Thomas G. Wells married Lucinda Lyman, of
    Lebanon, daughter of Elias Lyman and Ruth Griswold.
    They had eight children, - Thomas Goodwin, born 1804, in
    Sutton ; Lucinda Lyman, born 1806, in Sutton ; Phineas
    Parkhurst, 1 808 ; Marcia Emeline, 1810; Edwin Ruthwin,
    1814; Ruth Lyman, 1816; Elias Lyman, 1818; Rodwell
    Emerson, 1820, - all born in Hopkinton.
    Dr. Wells died May 2, 1849 ; Mrs. Wells, April 7, 1860.
    EDWIN R. WELLS, the son of Dr. Thomas G. Wells and
    Lucinda Lyman, was born in Hopkinton, October ii7,
    1814. In early life, he attended Hopkinton academy. He
    was many years a merchant, residing in Illinois from 1835

    to 1840 ; in Pittsburgh, Pa., from 1840 to 1850 ; in California,
    from 1850 to 1851 ; in Walpole, from 1851 to 1859 ;
    in Dalton, Ga., from 1864 to 1881. In 1881, he returned
    to Hopkinton and pursued farming, building the house now
    occupied by Charles J. Conner.
    Mr. Wells died March 20, 1882.

    THOMAS GOODWIN WELLS, many years a well known
    physician of Hopkinton, was born in Lebanon, November
    17, 1779, being a son of Thomas Goodwin Wells and Elizabeth
    Goodwin. The elder Wells was a farmer and weaver,
    like a number of his neighbors who came from Connecticut.
    When a young man, the subject of this sketch quitted

    the farm and read medicine with Dr. Phineas Parkhurat, of
    Lebanon, and subsequently attended medical and surgical
    lectures at Hanover. His first practice was in Sutton. In
    1807, he came to Hopkinton, locating on the place now
    occupied by Dea. David Tucker, in the west part of the
    town. Subsequently he moved to Bosoawen, where he
    practised for a time, and then he returned and lived in
    various places in West Hopkinton, one of them being the
    Lazaro Currier spot, where he built the present house.
    Afterwards he spent a number of years in Contoocook, and
    finally moved to Hopkinton village, occupying the house
    that stood many years on the site of the present summer
    cottage of Horace G. Chase. Dr. Wells was considered a
    superior surgeon for his time. . He sometimes received students
    of medicine into Ms office. One of his professional
    pupils was Dr. Moses Long, who practised in Concord,
    Goffstown, Enfield, Warner, and Rochester, N. Y. Another
    was Dr. Henry Lyman, who practised in Warner. While
    residing in Boscawen, Dr. Wells, being an intimate acquaintance
    of Daniel Webster, sometimes joined him in
    pleasure excursions. One day they went out hunting squirrels
    with a man named Clark, who wore a gray suit of
    clothes. Clark climbed a tree, and Mr. Webster, mistaking
    a portion of his gray clothing for the squirrel, fired,
    wounding him. The accident caused Mr. Webster much
    distress. His generosity caused him to make Clark a number
    of presents ; and although Dr. Wells probably charged
    nothing for attending professionally to the wound, the
    cause of it gave him a keg of oysters, a rare treat for those
    times.
    In 1802, Thomas G. Wells married Lucinda Lyman, of
    Lebanon, daughter of Elias Lyman and Ruth Griswold.
    They had eight children, - Thomas Goodwin, born 1804, in
    Sutton ; Lucinda Lyman, born 1806, in Sutton ; Phineas
    Parkhurst, 1 808 ; Marcia Emeline, 1810; Edwin Ruthwin,
    1814; Ruth Lyman, 1816; Elias Lyman, 1818; Rodwell
    Emerson, 1820, - all born in Hopkinton.
    Dr. Wells died May 2, 1849 ; Mrs. Wells, April 7, 1860.
    EDWIN R. WELLS, the son of Dr. Thomas G. Wells and
    Lucinda Lyman, was born in Hopkinton, October ii7,
    1814. In early life, he attended Hopkinton academy. He
    was many years a merchant, residing in Illinois from 1835

    to 1840 ; in Pittsburgh, Pa., from 1840 to 1850 ; in California,
    from 1850 to 1851 ; in Walpole, from 1851 to 1859 ;
    in Dalton, Ga., from 1864 to 1881. In 1881, he returned
    to Hopkinton and pursued farming, building the house now
    occupied by Charles J. Conner.
    Mr. Wells died March 20, 1882.

    OBITUARY.— Phineas Parkhurst Wells, M.D.
    Dr. Wells, a prominent homoeopathic physician, died at his residence in Brooklyn, N. Y., on November 23, 1892, in his eighty-fourth year. From his youth Dr. Wells cherished the idea of devoting himself to medicine, but the opposition of his parents induced him to give up the plan and take up the printer's trade instead. He followed this business for a time, but the old desire overcame him at last, and he began the study of medicine. After some preliminary study he entered the Dartmouth Medical College, where he graduated in 1833. During his college course, feeling the need of an acquaintance with other languages than the English, he gave much
    labor to Latin, Greek, and French, becoming especially proficient in the
    latter. Besides this, when converted to homoeopathy in 1841, he took
    up the study of German and mastered it. Dr. Wells moved to Brooklyn
    in 1843, where he speedily built up what was at one time the largest
    homoeopathic practice in the city. He took an active part in his earlier
    days in the organization of different homoeopathic institutions, and was
    always ready with his advice and aid to any of his professional associates.
    He was one of the founders of the American Institute of Homoeopathy,
    and in 1867-68 delivered a course of lectures at the New York
    Homoeopathic Medical College. He was a firm believer in the Hahne-
    mannic law, and if some have thought that the value of his writings was
    impaired by the dogmatic and bitter tone sometimes employed, all believed in his sincerity and zeal. He left six children. His wife died in
    1873-

    THOMAS GOODWIN WELLS, many years a well known
    physician of Hopkinton, was born in Lebanon, November
    17, 1779, being a son of Thomas Goodwin Wells and Elizabeth
    Goodwin. The elder Wells was a farmer and weaver,
    like a number of his neighbors who came from Connecticut.
    When a young man, the subject of this sketch quitted

    the farm and read medicine with Dr. Phineas Parkhurat, of
    Lebanon, and subsequently attended medical and surgical
    lectures at Hanover. His first practice was in Sutton. In
    1807, he came to Hopkinton, locating on the place now
    occupied by Dea. David Tucker, in the west part of the
    town. Subsequently he moved to Bosoawen, where he
    practised for a time, and then he returned and lived in
    various places in West Hopkinton, one of them being the
    Lazaro Currier spot, where he built the present house.
    Afterwards he spent a number of years in Contoocook, and
    finally moved to Hopkinton village, occupying the house
    that stood many years on the site of the present summer
    cottage of Horace G. Chase. Dr. Wells was considered a
    superior surgeon for his time. . He sometimes received students
    of medicine into Ms office. One of his professional
    pupils was Dr. Moses Long, who practised in Concord,
    Goffstown, Enfield, Warner, and Rochester, N. Y. Another
    was Dr. Henry Lyman, who practised in Warner. While
    residing in Boscawen, Dr. Wells, being an intimate acquaintance
    of Daniel Webster, sometimes joined him in
    pleasure excursions. One day they went out hunting squirrels
    with a man named Clark, who wore a gray suit of
    clothes. Clark climbed a tree, and Mr. Webster, mistaking
    a portion of his gray clothing for the squirrel, fired,
    wounding him. The accident caused Mr. Webster much
    distress. His generosity caused him to make Clark a number
    of presents ; and although Dr. Wells probably charged
    nothing for attending professionally to the wound, the
    cause of it gave him a keg of oysters, a rare treat for those
    times.
    In 1802, Thomas G. Wells married Lucinda Lyman, of
    Lebanon, daughter of Elias Lyman and Ruth Griswold.
    They had eight children, - Thomas Goodwin, born 1804, in
    Sutton ; Lucinda Lyman, born 1806, in Sutton ; Phineas
    Parkhurst, 1 808 ; Marcia Emeline, 1810; Edwin Ruthwin,
    1814; Ruth Lyman, 1816; Elias Lyman, 1818; Rodwell
    Emerson, 1820, - all born in Hopkinton.
    Dr. Wells died May 2, 1849 ; Mrs. Wells, April 7, 1860.
    EDWIN R. WELLS, the son of Dr. Thomas G. Wells and
    Lucinda Lyman, was born in Hopkinton, October ii7,
    1814. In early life, he attended Hopkinton academy. He
    was many years a merchant, residing in Illinois from 1835

    to 1840 ; in Pittsburgh, Pa., from 1840 to 1850 ; in California,
    from 1850 to 1851 ; in Walpole, from 1851 to 1859 ;
    in Dalton, Ga., from 1864 to 1881. In 1881, he returned
    to Hopkinton and pursued farming, building the house now
    occupied by Charles J. Conner.
    Mr. Wells died March 20, 1882.
