Hewitt, George D., M. D., was born in Denmark, Lewis county, N. Y., July 31, 1834, a son of Isaac Hewitt, a farmer of that town. His early education was acquired in the common schools and his medical education (for he is a physician of excellent standing in the county) was acquired in the University of Vermont, the Metropolitan Medical College of New York, and also in a medical college at Pittsfield, Mass. In 1861 Dr. Hewitt entered the army as assistant surgeon in the 33d Cavalry and served ten months, when he was discharged for disabilities. However, in 1864 he again entered the army and served in the hospital and medical departments until the close of the war. He first came to Carthage in 1863, and again after the final muster out in 1865. He has since practiced in this part of the county and lives on the West Carthage side of the river, in that pretty little village of which he has several times been president. In Champion Dr. Hewitt has held the office of supervisor nine years and always as the Democratic nominee. He is a member of the National, State and also Black River Medical Societies. In 1868 he married Elizabeth Easton, who died in 1875, and his second wife was Nettie M. Spencer.
