What's the origin of the word "Together".

I was looking at the word today and I realised it contrains "To-get-her" o_O

I know, it's not the most witful observation but it made me wonder about the origin of the word, which probably won't have anything to do with what I just said :P

It's from Old English togædere, related to modern word "gather".
