  • Notes 
    • Of the firm of Lombard & Whitmore, merchants.

      "Charles Octavius, after the death of his father, went to the West Indies and lived in Barbadoes with his uncle, Isaiah C. Whitmore. He returned to New England and resided in Boston from 1825 to his death in 1885. In 1826 he formed a partnership with Israel Lombard, which continued until 1855. He retired from active business in 1872, remaining President of the Market Bank from 1860 to 1885, and holding different offices in the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, Agricultural Club, and kindred societies. From 1852 to 1862 his summers were passed in Lexington, where he had an estate which he devoted to experiments in the cultivation of fruits, vegetables and landscape gardening. He was Vestryman and Warden of Emmanuel Church, Boston, for many years. He spent the last years of his life in the enjoyment of his large library, collection of pictures, and the society of his family and friends. He was a man of active mind, quick wit, and excellent memory, combined with honesty, integrity, and absolute fearlessness." [The Whitmore Genealogy]
