Jewett, Carlton Rogers, M. D., Buffalo, is a lineal descendant of Edward Jewett of Bradford, England, who was born in 1604, and whose grandson. Joseph Jewett, came to America and settled at Rowley, Mass., in 1638. Capt. Joseph Jewett, son of Capt. Nathan and great-grandson of Joseph, was born December 13, 1732, and on the breaking out of the Revolutionary war became captain of one of the companies of Colonel Huntington's 17th Continental Regiment of Connecticut. At the battle of Long Island he was mortally wounded and taken prisoner, and died August 29, 1776. He married Lucretia Rogers. Their fourth son, Deacon Josiah Jewett, was born at Lyme, Coun., December 29, 1773, and married Elizabeth Smith, of the same place. Their son, Guernsey Jewett, was born at Moravia, N. Y., July 1, 1816, and died there May 3, 1893; his wife, Eliza Carter, still survives. Carlton Rogers Jewett, M. D., son of Guernsey, was born at Moravia on March 5, 1852, and received his early education in the district school. About 1868 his father met with business reverses, which caused young Jewett to temporarily abandon his studies and go to work, first at surveying, later on the farm, and finally in the store of his father, who had resumed business at Moravia. Dr. Jewett spent four years at these various occupations, another year in the local school, and then entered the preparatory school of Wilbert Perry in Morristown, N. J., where he remained one and one-half years. In 1874 he entered Yale University and was graduated with the degree of A. B. in 1878; he then entered the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New York city and received the degree of M. D. in May, 1881. In April he had passed the examination and was admitted to the Charity Hospital on Blackwell's Island, where he remained about eighteen months. Dr. Jewett came to Buffalo in October, 1882, and began the general practice of his profession, in which he has continued with eminent success. He succeeded the late Dr. Sylvester F. Mixer. Dr. Jewett is a member of the Erie County Medical Society, the Buffalo Academy of Medicine, the Buffalo Medical Club, the University and Saturn Clubs, and the Sons of the American Revolution. He is also a 32' Mason, holding membership in Ancient Landmarks Lodge F. & A. M. October 8, 1885, he married Jessie Clark Holland, daughter of Nelson Holland, of Buffalo, and they have three sons: Nelson Holland, Canton Clark, and Theodore Carter.
