Historical NoteThe Samuel Livingston Mather family of Cleveland, Ohio descends from Samuel Mather (1745-1809), a shareholder and member of the first board of directors of the Connecticut Land Company. His son, also named Samuel Mather (1771-1854), was also a shareholder of the Connecticut Land Company. One of his sons, Samuel Livingston Mather (1817-1890), settled in Cleveland in 1843. In 1847, he was one of the founders of the Cleveland Iron Mining Company (later the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company). His youngest son, William Gwinn Mather (1857-1951) later became president of the company. Samuel Livingston Mather's oldest son, Samuel Mather (1851-1931) helped found a rival iron ore firm, Pickands, Mather, and Company. He married Flora Stone, by whom he had four children, the oldest of which was Samuel Livingston Mather (1882-1960). Named for his grandfather, he graduated from Yale University in 1905, and began working for Cleveland-Cliffs. He also served on the boards of the Otis Steel Company, Cleveland Trust Company, the Bessemer Limestone and Cement Company, and the Lamson and Sessions Company. He was an active philanthropist, particularly interested in his alma mater, Yale, and the Holden Arboretum in Geauga County, Ohio. He oversaw the operation of his farm located near Mentor, Ohio, known as Mountain Glen Farm. He was first married to Grace Harman, and secondly to Alice Keith. He had two daughters, Flora Stone (husband Robert C. Hosmer Jr.) and Elizabeth (husband S. Sterling McMillan).
