Mather, George, was born on the homestead farm in the town of Adams, October 4, 1824. His father, William Mather, came to Jefferson county in 1813 from the town of Marlboro, Vermont, and in 1820 took up a tract of land from the Bostwick Land Company. He married Polly, daughter of Josiah Dudley; he died in 1859 in his seventieth year. George Mather was educated at Union Academy, Belleville, N. Y., and in 1867 married Jane Murray. They have one daughter, Jennie. Mr. Mather is one of the practical and successful farmers of his town. In 1882 he helped to organize the Adams National Bank. Withdrawing from this bank in 1889, he assisted in organizing the Citizen's National Bank of Adams, of which he has been president since it was founded. He is a man of sterling integrity, whose judgment has ever been sought and respected by all who know him.
