About Henry Codman

DAR Ancestor #: A023694 Surgeon

COD-CODMAN 2. HENRY COD studied medicine and practiced in Amherst; not liking his sirname (sic) he added another syllable to it and styled himself Dr. Codman. In his practice he used the remedies common among the people, and told marvelous stories which kept his patients in good spirits and contributed to their recovery. Toward the close of his life he became intemperate and met with many ludicrous adventures in his drunken fits. He was b in Middleton, Mass., 25 Jan 1744; d in Amherst 14 Mar 1812.

By his wife, Agnes, who d 19 Jan 1808, aged 69, he had one son and one daughter - Henry Codman Jr.; Catherine d 10 Jun 1781, age 2 yrs & 3 mos. [Secomb 540-541]

Henry Codman, son of Henry (sic, William) Codman, an Irish immigrant, was born in Middleton, Mass. His mother was a near relative of Rev. Mr. Wilkins. He practiced here nearly forty years, and died in March 1812. His son, Henry Codman, practiced in Mont Vernon a short time, but died young. [Secomb 469]
