Charles D. Mather

The Vermont Journal, April 20, 1928

Charles D. Mather, 80, a prominent retired business man of Montpelier, died at the Boston City hospital April 10 as the result of a fractured skull, never regaining consciousness after being struck by an automobile on Boylston street, Boston, on April 7.

Mr. Mather was born in Weathersfield December 15, 1847, the son of Charles and Mary (Wait) Mather, and spent the early years of his life in that town and in Windsor. He went while a young man to Boston where he entered into the drygoods business, which he followed all of his active business life. As a salesman he became well known throughout New England. He became a member of the firm of Walker, Stetson Company, retiring from business some 20 years ago.

For a few years he was the senior member of the firm of Mather and Temple in Montpelier.

Toward the close of the Civil war, Mr. Mather enlisted in the 3rd Vermont battery of artillery and served until the close of the war. He was a member of the Brooks Post, G.A.R. of Montpelier.

Mr. Mather was a devoted member of the Unitarian church of Montpelier, active in the laymen's league. He was president of the Fisher Home for the Aged of Montpelier, a trustee of the Wood Art Gallery, a member of the Vermont Historical society and of the Apollo Club of Montpelier. He and Mason Stone were the two honorary members of a study and discussion club known as The Club, one of the unique organizations of the capital city.

His first wife was Clara Fifield of Montpelier, who died in 1900. He was married in 1902 to Mrs. Lucy (Barrows) Moulton, who survives him. He also leaves a stepson and stepdaughter, Harry B. Moulton and Mrs. Nellie M. Lowe, both of Montpelier, a sister, Mrs. Frank W. Adams of Chester, and a nephew, Paul W. Adams of Chester.

Mr. Mather was a brother-in-law of Mrs. Mary Mather of State street. Many years ago he worked for a time for the old firm of Tuxbury and Stone and in later years was often in Windsor, the last time being last August when he was here to attend the Sesqui-Centennial celebration.
