Isaac Newton Hall



Isaac Newton Hall was born to Susan Perkins Burnham and Henry Hall III on June 3, 1808, in Rumney, Groton, New Hampshire.  Isaac was married twice: (1) Louisa Webster, and (2) Elizabeth Taisey.  Elizabeth was born on February 9, 1811 and she died on November 11, 1873.  Elizabeth's parents were William Taisey, born in Scotland, and Judith Darling, born in Vermont.


Isaac was a member of both branches of the Vermont legislature several times. President of the Montpelier and Wells River Railroad,  Director of a bank in Newbury. He was looked upon in his hometown of Groton, Vermont as the leader of town affairs. He was also a district judge and was known for many years as Judge Hall.

He was engaged in several pursuits - farming, lumber, sawmill, cattle trading and in whatever business that he could make a dollar. He had a very judicial air about him and yet he was very gracious, softened easily to the appeals of the needy, always generous and with few enemies. He was strictly honest in all his business transactions and I heard many time from the lips of Groton residents that his word was as good as his bond.


Isaac died on November 23, 1893, in Chicago, Illinois
