  • ID: I19975
  • Name: Charles Wetherill
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 17 DEC 1798 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Death: 1 NOV 1838 in Pennsylvania
  • Note:
    Charles Wetherill, was averse to trade, and only contented himself with it under the control of his father, and until that parent's death. He then quitted the family firm, at great pecuniary disadvantage it is said, yet not before wealth had
    assured ease and the opportunity to indulge in his favorite pursuits and studies. He purchased a handsome estate and built on the banks of the Wissahickon, near Philadelphia; and there he passed the remainder of his life in the enjoyment of his
    manifold collections in art, literature and science. He had considerable skill in modeling in clay; he had dreams of discovering perpetual motion; but his favorite science was astronomy, for which he built a tower at his seat, and placed in it
    a superb telescope of great power at that period,--which, after his death, his widow gave to the University of Pennsylvania. He was one of the most genial, gentle, unassuming of men, and perhaps it was a pity, that his tastes for higher
    intellectual pursuits were thwarted in early life, when he was involuntarily forced into manufactures and trade.
