Biography of Dr. Jared W. Fitch
Madison County, NY Biographies





Fitch, Jared W., M. D., who died in Oneida, December 8, 1881, in the seventy fourth year of his age, was for years a prominent and highly respected citizen of this village. He was a native of Clinton, Oneida County, N. Y., where he was born in 1807, a son of Dr. John Fitch, a practicing physician of that village. He was graduated M. D. at the Berkshire Medical College, Mass., in 1829, and soon thereafter commenced practice about thirty miles east of St. Louis in Illinois. Thence, after a few years, he removed to New York State, and engaged in a manufacturing enterprise in the city of Rochester. In 1851 he removed to Oneida, being interested for a time in the manufacture of the Northrup printing press. Later he resumed the practice of medicine which he continued almost up to the time of his death, being at the same time associated with two of his sons in the manufacture of drain tile. The foregoing covers the general record of his active life, a life that won for him a large measure of the respect and esteem of his fellows. Few men have secured a more honored name in this community; possessed of a warm social nature, he naturally drew the affection of others; honorable and upright he was trusted by all; a Christian man, conscientiously but firmly discharging his duties, his influence for good was widely felt, and as an exemplary member of the Presbyterian church he was always active in all that pertained to its prosperity.
