Biography

Nathaniel B. Hall died June 7, 1892. Mr. Hall was born at Bennington, Vt., September 2, 1826, and was consequently nearly 66 years of age. He grew up in the Green Mountain state and engaged in business there. At the breaking out of the war he gave up his private business and for two years gave his entire time to the work of organizing military companies and sending them to the front. In 1864 he enlisted as major of the 14th Vermont volunteers, and did valiant duty at the front until the close of the war, participating in the battle of Gettysburg and other noted engagements.

In 1870 he came to Jackson and engaged in the insurance business with the late James Gould and N. C. Lowe. He was a lawyer by profession and was a member of the Jackson county bar, but seldom practiced in court. He was not a politician in any sense of the word, and although often urged to accept nominations to office persistently declined. He was, however, prevailed upon to accept an appointment at one time as a member of the board of public works, a position which he filled with honor and integrity. A year ago he was appointed a member of the board of police commissioners, but tendered his resignation several weeks ago, which, however, was not accepted until last Monday night. Mr. Hall was a member of Jackson Chapter R. A. M. He leaves a wife and three children, Mrs. Harriet Kennedy, Harry R. Hall, and Mrs. Dolly Blanchard.

Mr. Hall was a gentleman of high attainments and of the greatest integrity. His sense of honor was always of the most pronounced type and he was among Jackson's most progressive business men. His estimable qualities made for him hosts of friends who will sincerely mourn his loss.
