Dr. Isaachar Snell

Among the early members of the Massachusetts Medical Society in Plymouth County, as we know it, was Dr. Isaachar Snell of North Bridgwater, graduated from Harvard College in 1797. He gave special attention to surgery and had performed the operation of lithotomy with great success. He moved from North Bridgewater to Winthrop, Maine, and later to Augusta, Maine, dying in the latter city in 1847, aged seventy-two years.
