Samuel Whittemore, Esq., died suddenly July 15, 1806, aged seventy-three. He was a native of Cambridge. He graduated at Harvard College in 1751, and commenced teaching in Gloucester the next year; from which time he became a permanent resident. He served the town as a representative, and held many other offices usually conferred upon prominent citizens; in all of which he was esteemed for an honest and faithful discharge of his duties. He was twice married: first to Margaret, daughter of Rev. Joshua Gee of Boston; and next to Mrs. Sarah Parsons of Gloucester. One son and three daughters, all by the last wife, still survive. A grandson (George) graduated at Harvard College in 1857, — more than a century after his grandfather. (Babson)
