||William Rawson, third son of Edward, was educated to a mercantile life, and became a prominent merchant and an importer of foreign goods. up to the time of his marriage, in 1673, he resided with his father in Rawson's Lane, now Broomfield Street, Boston, where he kept a dry goods store. At the age of 22 years he was married to Anne Glover, only daughter of Mr. Nathaniel and Mary (Smith) Glover of Dorchester, Mass., as the following certificate, copied from the ancient Bible, will show:|
"This may certify all whomsoever it may concern,e that on ye 11th day of July, 1673, on a certificate I received, that William Rawson and Anne Glover, ye daughter of ye late Mr. Nathaniel Glover, had been duly and legally published, I joined them in marriage at the house and in the presence of Mr. Habackuk Glover, his wife, Mr. Edward Rawson, father of ye sd William Rawson, and friends. As witness my hand, this 31st of July 1673.
Edward Tyng, Ass't."
It seems they were faithful to the great and first command given to man - to be fruitful and multiply - for in the space of twenty-five years they had twenty children. Only five sons of them, however, living to grow up and have families of their own. He purchased a house of Mr. John Glover of Boston (an uncle of his wife), and must have resided in Boston some years.
In 1689, he sold his estate back to Mr. Glover, of whom he purchased, and removed with his family to Dorchester, where he resided upon a portion of "Newbury Farm", inherited by his wife. he afterwards purchased of the heirs of his great uncle, the Rev. John Wilson, a tract of land situated in Braintree, "being a portion of the land granted to this most worthy and distinguished Divine by the General Court of the Colony," which he made into a homestead, and which is now known as the "Ancient Rawson Farm." It is situated near Neponset village, adjoining the homestead of the Hon. Josiah Quincy. It has been passed down from father to son, unto the fifth generation. From William to his son David, who left it to his son Jonathan in 1760, then to Jonathan, Jr., and his sister Mary, in 1782, between whom it was divided. In 1819, Jonathan, Jr., left his portion to his son Samuel, who died in 1854, unmarried; leaving it to his sister Clarissa, now 75 years of age, and the only one of the children of Jonathan, Jr., still living. The other portion, owned by Mary and her husband, Mr. Lemuel Billings, passed into the hands of their son, John Billings, who left it to his son, Lemuel, who now owns the whole estate, having recently purchased of Clarissa Rawson her interest in the same. His house is on the same spot, where the house of William Rawson once stood. Here, upon this spot, sacred to their memory, William and Anne lived nearly forty years; here they died. He, Sept. 20, 1726, in his 75th year. She, about 1730, aged 74 years.

The will of the latter man dated June 26, 1651, and proved October 30 following, speaks of William as being then in New England, but he must have come over very lately for he deposed on December 28, 1697, that he had come to this country about 1652.

||William Wetherell was of the educated class in England, where he was born in the year 1600. His education was completed at Cambridge, where he graduated with the degree of A.B. in 1623, and three yeas later he took the degree A.M. at the same university. In 1625 he was married to Mary Fisher, who was born in England in 1602.|
With his wife, three children and one servant, he emigrated to New England, coming in the ship HERCULES, and in the ship's register he is recorded as "Schoolmaster," from Maidstone, England. He arrived in 1634 or sooner, and in 1635 he was employed in a grammar school at Charleston, Massachusetts, and in Cambridge during the two years following that.
In 1638 he removed to Duxbury, Massachusetts, where he purchased a house, but it has not been discovered what his occupation at that time was. In 1644 he moved to Scituate, Massachusetts, and on September 2, 1645, he was ordained as the first minister of the church organized there, and from that time the church records are in his handwriting until 1674. As his pastorate did not terminate at the latter date we conclude he was compelled by some infirmity to permit others to write the records after that. He died at Scituate April 9, 1684, aged 84 years.
He seems to have been a man of marked personality, and to have given the impress of his strong character on the community in a way that has left its legacy of legendary lore. One anecdote handed down by tradition will serve to illustrate alike the quality of the man and the customs of the day; customs so different from our own in church matters that it is difficult to fully realize it. One of his congregation had entered church after service had commenced, and at the close of his prayer Mr. Wetherell thus addressed him:
"Neighbor Bryant, it is to your reproach that you have disturbed the worship by entering late, living as you do within a mile of this place, and especially so, since here is Goody Barstow, who has milked seven cows, made a cheese, and walked five miles to the House of God in good season."
Dean's "History of Scituate, Massachusetts," gives some account of him, and credits the tradition that his mother was the daughter of John Rogers, the martyr of Smithfield. Beside attending to his schoolteaching and later to his ministerial duties, it would seem that he found time to court the muse, for it is recorded of him that he "was one of the best of the early colonial poets.

||William's father wanted his son to become a farmer, but he did not like farming, and chose rather to be a silversmith. His father yielded at last to his desire and sent him to learn the trade. He did not learn much of it in the regular way, for his master died before his apprenticeship was ended. William, however, clung to the trade and was devoted to his work.|
William was living at Bennington, VT. during the Revolutionary War, and, during the battle on Aug. 6, 1777, he was taken prisoner by the British twice, and twice escaped. From Bennington, he later removed to Easton, Washington Co., NY, where several of his children were born. Around the turn of the century, he removed to Utica, NY, where he died. His wife, Sarah, and her youngest child, Daniel, moved westward to Alabama, Genesee Co., NY, an lived with her son, James, "the pioneer."

||William's wife, Mary, descended from the leading families of Nobility and Royalty of England. She was a direct descendant of King Edward III of England, and of thirteen former kings, prior to King Edward's reign.|
She also was a member of the illustrious family of the Lords of De la Warr, who were connected with the early settlement of America. Sir Thomas West, 3d Lord De La Warr, and his brother, John, both were among the early Governors of the Virginia Colony. Her great-grandfather, General John Humphrey, a lawyer by profession, was one of the founders of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the Colony's first Deputy Governor. He was prominent in the foundation of Cambridge College, familiarly known today as Harvard University.
Mary's father, Capt. Samuel Avery, was the son of Capt. James Avery and Joanna (Greenslade), and grandson of Christopher Avery, progenitor of the Avery family in New England. He was born Aug. 14, 1664, and on Oct. 25 1686, married Susannah Palmes, dau. of William Palmes and Ann (Humphrey), of Swanzey, Mass. Capt. Samuel Avery operated a large farm and was chosen moderator upon the legal organization of the town of Groton in 1704, and its first townsman at the first town meeting in 1705, an office which he held until his death, which occurred May 1, 1723.

REUBEN GATES, farmer, has been a resident of St. Charles since 1860; having purchased eighty acres of land on Sec. 23, in 1859, he settled here with his family the following year. He subsequently bought eighty acres more on Sec. 26, adjoining the first purchase; his farm lies half on either side of the St. Charles and Winona road; is very nearly level, and is a sight with its neat buildings and other improvements, to delight the vision of a tidy agriculturist. Willis Gates, father of this subject, was born in Ackworth, New Hampshire, and married Miss Almira Hulett, of Weathersfield, Vermont. He settled on a farm in Elizabethtown, Essex county, New York, where Reuben Gates was born on July 28, 1826. He assisted his father on the farm and in the operation of a sawmill, attending the common school of his native town. At twenty four years old he purchased a farm, and has always been a tiller of the soil. On March 11, 1851, he was married to Eliza Wakefield; her father, Johnathan Wakefield, was born in New Hampshire. and her mother, Rebecca Haven, was a descendant of Richard Haven, Who emigrated from England to America in 1640, and was born at Newport, Rhode Island.
