    Dr. Porter, 2nd, the first of the name in Waterbury, and one of the original settlers of the town, was the eldest son of Daniel the "bonesetter" of Farmington, surgeon-general for the colony, and was born February 2, 1652-3. He was for a considerable time the only professional man in the Waterbury settlement, there being at the first no business for lawyers and no means of support for ministers. Besides practicing medicine and surgery - arts which he had learned from his father - he was also a land surveyor, and filled other offices for which something more than the usual amount of education was required. Beyond this, little is known of him. He had four sons and two daughters and died January 18, 1726-7, at the age of seventy-five, having lived in Waterbury a half century from the beginning of the settlement. He left property to the amount of the $6000, and gave much to his children during his life. His medical library consisted of "a bone-set" appraised at two shillings.
