The following March 6, 1952, Lowell Tribune article was found on page 1, column 3:
Lowell Doctors of the pastů
A Series of Articles contributed by Attorney Schuyler C. Dwyer, lifelong resident of Lowell
Our second physician, the above subject, who established his home and office in a "one and a half story" frame house on the lot at the present site of the present Methodist church parsonage. This property for many years after his passing was referred to as the "Yeoman property." He probably occupied the first story of his house as his family residence, and the upper half story for his office, for it was the latter portion which Doctor Gerrish later occupied. He had a barn on the south end of the lot, facing the present Union avenue. Nothing could be gleaned of his characteristics, as all who knew of him have long since passed on to their eternal home, but he must have had an extensive practice for that early time, as he had no practical competition. He must have been in practice here during the 1860's, and was well spoken of those who were left later.
