Long Description:
Samuel Taft was born September 23, 1735 at Upton, Worcester County, Massachusetts, and died in 1816 at Uxbridge Worcester County, Massachusetts, in his 80th year.

In 1789, Samuel Taft was the proprietor of a tavern in Uxbridge. This tavern is now known as Samuel Taft House. Newly elected President of the United States, George Washington, stayed one evening with Mr. Taft and his family. The President wrote a letter to Mr. Taft, from his next stop, on November 8 at Hartford, thanking him for his service and giving some gifts to Samuel's daughters.

The famous Taft family from Uxbridge and Mendon, has produced a line of politicians throughout the USA, including another President, William Howard Taft, whose grandfather, Peter Rawson Taft I was born in Uxbridge in 1785..
