The man on the right is Mr. Samuel Parker of E. Cambridge. He adopted two of the donor's great aunts. Their name had been Eaton but they changed it and took the name of Parker. He married a granddaughter of Cotton Mather, possibly named Hanna Mather, who was widow Crocker at the time of her marriage to Parker.
