This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Freetown, Massachusetts to a large Quaker family, Rufus Hathaway trained in the family business of carpentry and ship building. By the early 1790s, he was working as an itinerant artist in the nearby Taunton area. By 1792, he made Duxbury, Massachusetts his permanent home, and he painted portraits of both family members and prominent community people. He painted miniatures, and only four have been located, and only three landscape paintings are attributed to him.

He married Judith Winsor, whose father dissuaded Hathaway from being an artist. Some time later, he became Duxbury's resident doctor, a profession with more predictable income. In 1822, he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Massachusetts Medical Society. That same year he died, and is buried in the Mayflower Cemetery of Duxbury.
