GROTON. 249

For several years he was the president of the North
Middlesex Conference of Unitarian and other Chris-
tian churches. He died March 13, 1883, aged fifty-
four years.

A unique monument of his own design marks his
resting-place in the village cemetery.



LUTHER BLOOD.

Luther Blood was born at Groton, October 21,
1810, and is a son of Luther and Sally (Cook)
Blood. His grandfather, Caleb, married Hannah
Holden, November 1, 1753, and Elizabeth Farns-
worth, March 3, 1774. He had twenty-seven chil-
dren, of whom Luther was the twenty-fifth. Eliza-
beth, the grandmother, was a member of the old
Farnsworth family, whose name was among the first
settlers of the town. Caleb was born November 23,
1734, and was the son of John and .Joanna (Nutting)
Blood, who were married July 13, 1712. The first
ancestor in Groton of Luther Blood was probably
James, who was one of four by the name of Blood
who early went to the township and became original
proprietors, and are mentioned as petitioners for a
plantation at that place. The family name is a fa-
miliar one ; and while some who bear it have become
widely scattered in the land, there have yet been
those who have continued it in Groton and the adjacent
places, which were formerly a part of the ancient
town. The old homestead, where the subject of this
sketch was born, is situated in West Groton, near
Fitch's Bridge. It is on the west side of the Nashua



250 GEOTON.

Kiver, and is now owned and occupied by Augustus
Blood, a brother of Luther. This estate has for many
years been in the possession of the Blood family.
The grandfather of Luther came into possession of it
when it was wilderness land, and by his industry and
thrift it became a smiling homestead, where succes-
sive generations of the family have been reared. On
this farm the subject of this sketch spent his early
years, where his life was in accord with the customs
and ways of the rural and sparsely-peopled places of
our old Xew England towns. There was plenty of
hard, rough work on the farm, and that substantial
and wholesome fare, which may have been a condi-
tion of the robust health which he, at his advanced
age, now enjoys. The education he received was at
the humble school-house in what is still known as
District No. 4, and consisted in what could be ob-
tained in a course of six or eight weeks each year.

At the age of eighteen he left home and learned
the carpenter's trade. Two school buildings still
stand which were erected under his supervision, and
which, by their contrast, suggest the rapid improve-
ment in our educational means. One of these is a
small, unoccupied, brick school-house, in District
Ko. 4, built in 1835 ; the other the beautiful Law-
rence Academy, erected in 1870.

May 2, 1844, Mr. Blood married Sarah Park Stone,
of South Groton, now the town of Ayer. Miss Stone's
birthplace was about a mile from Ayer Junction ; but
her later home was the "Stone Place," on the old
road from Ayer to Groton. Mr. and Mrs. Blood have
no children. Their residence is pleasantly situated



GROTON. 251

on High Street, near the Lawrence Academy and the
Unitarian Church. Mr. Blood was an old-time Whig,
till the breaking up of that party, since which time
he has been a Republican. His habits have been
simple and regular. He has been temperate and in-
dustrious, and bears the marks of well-developed
old age.

SAMUEL A. GREEN".^

Samuel Abbott Green was born in Groton, Mass.,
March 16, 1830. He graduated at Harvard in 1851.
After receiving his medical degree, in 1854, he spent
several years in Europe. On his return he began the
practice of his profession in Boston. May 19, 1858,
he was appointed by Governor Banks surgeon of the
Second Massachusetts Militia Regiment, and at the
breaking out of the Rebellion he entered the service
as assistant surgeon of the First Massachusetts Regi-
ment, and was the first medical ofiicer in the Com-
monwealth mustered in for three years' service. Sep-
tember 2, 1861, Dr. Green was promoted to surgeon of
the Twenty-fourth Massachusetts Regiment, a posi-
tion which he occupied until November 2, 1864.
During this time he was on the stafts of various cavalry
officers. On the Burnside expedition to Roanoke he
had charge of the hospital-ship " Recruit," and later,
of the hospital-ship " Cosmopolitan," on the South
Carolina coast. He was also chief medical officer at
Morris Island during the siege of Fort Wagner.
He was appointed post-surgeon at Jacksonville and

St. Augustine, Fla., iu October, 1863, and from this
point went to Virginia, and was with the army when
Bermuda Hundred was taken. After the surrender of
Richmond Dr. Green was appointed acting staff-sur-
geon in that city, where he remained three months.

In 1862 he was successful in organizing Roanoke
Cemetery, one of ihe first regular burial-places for
Union soldiers, which was dedicated, with appropri-
ate ceremonies on February 23, 1862. Dr. Green was
faithful to his trust, and those characteristics which
have marked his later life shone resplendent in the
service, and in 1864, for gallant and distinguished
services in the field, he was breveted lieutenant-col-
onel of volunteers.

At the clo^e of the war he returned to Boston, where
he has filled various positions of trust and responsi-
bility. From 1865 to 1872 he was superintendent of
the Boston Dispensary. He was a member of the
Boston School Board in 1860, '62, '66 and '72 ; trustee
of the Boston Public Library from 1868 to '78, and
acting librarian from October, 1877, to October, 1878.
In 1870 he was appointed by Governor Claflin on the
commission to care for disabled soldiers. He was
city physician from 1871 to 1880, and also, in 1878,
he w^as chosen a member of the board of experts,
authorized by Congress to investigate the yellow fever.
He is now serving his fourth term as an Overseer of
Harvard College, and is also one of the trustees of
the Peabody Education Fund, which was established
by the late George Peabody for educational purposes
at the South.

In 1882 Dr. Green was elected mayor of Boston.



GROTON. 253

While Dr. Green has been active and prominent in
the affairs of Boston generally, the distinguishing
feature of his career, perhaps, is the time and research
he has given to historical studies, and the various
works which he has prepared and printed — many of
them privately — form an invaluable addition to the
historic literature of the Commonwealth.

Among his works may be mentioned the following :
"My Campaigns in America," a journal kept by
Comte William de Deux Fonts, 1780-81 ; translated
from the French manuscript, with an introduction
and notes (Boston, 1868) ; "An Account of Fercival
and Ellen Green and Some of their Descendants,"
(printed privately, Groton, Mass., 1876); "Epitaphs
from the Old Burying-Ground in Groton, Mass."
(1879); "The Early Records of Groton, Mass, 1662-
1677" (1880); " History of Medicine in Massachu-
setts," a centennial address delivered before the Mas-
sachusetts Medical Society, June 7, 1881 (Boston,
1881); "Groton during the Indian Wars" (Groton,
1883); " Groton during the Witchcraft Times " (1883);
"The Boundary Lines of Old Groton" (1885); " The
Geography of Groton," preserved for the use of the
Appalachian (Mountain) Club (1886); "Groton His-
torical Series," thirty-seven numbers, 1883-1890, and
the " History of Groton," in this work.
