Sidney Houghton Mather
(1819-1852) was born in Marlboro, VT, and moved with his parents to Niagara County, NY as a child.
As many people did during the 19th century, Sidney went west as a young man, settling in Lenawee Co.,
Michigan. Sadly, Sidney died while still very young, leaving a widow and young children.
Following are some documents, pictures, and letters that survived his family.
