Dr. Walter Cary

Dr. Walter Cary (1818-1881), born in Batavia, New York, was the only child of Trumbull Cary, an agent of the Holland Land Company, and Margaret Eleanor Brisbane.

Dr. Cary attended Union College and the University of Pennsylvania Medical School.

In 1848 Cary married Julia Love, the daughter of Judge Thomas Cutting Love. Cary was a man of culture and refinement, and for many decades his house was one of the brightest spots in the social and cultural life of the city. It was also the home of Cary's vibrant sister-in-law,
Maria Love.
