the second exchange opened in the world.
"Upon the consolidation of the Western Union
and the Bell Telephone interests, in 188 r, he was
oflfered the position of general superintendent of
the Connecticut Telephone Co., with headquarters

Zenas Brockett, son of Sanuiel (,3rd), was born
and reared in Wallingford, and when a young man
came to Waterbury, locating on what is now known
as Brockett Hill, near Pearl Lake, where he pur-
chased a large tract of land from the Indians for
a small consideration. He was a farmer by occu-
pation, and was well known and highly re-
spected as a man of sterling integrity, upright and
true in all his dealings, and he was beloved by ail
who knew him. He was one of the fir.st members
of the Baptist Church in the town of Waterbury,
in which he served as deacon. Before the Baptist
Church in Waterbury was organized, there being
no church of that denomination nearer than Wal-
lingford, he would go sixteen miles to that town
to worship, in the absence of roads finding his way
through the thick forest by marked trees. He
would transact no business on Sunday. He gave
a small piece of land for the cemetery now known
as the Brockett cemetery, and the first bodies buried
there were those of his grandchildren of the Potter
family. He died on his farm on Brockett Hill, and

Frank Potter, whose name introduces this re-
view, received a district school education, and at
the age of fifteen years began his business career as
a buttonmaker, working in the ivory button shops
of Union City, Waterbury and Bridgeport, Conn.,
for over a quarter of a century. Since then he has
given his entire time and attention to farming and
market gardening on the old homestead at Pearl
Lake, where he has made many useful and valuable
In Waterbury, Feb. 20, 1850, Mr. Potter was
united in marriage with Miss Lucy Chase, a native
of New Preston, and a daughter of Chauncey and
Clarissa (Clemens) Chase. She died of heart
trouble Aug. 6, 1898, and was laid to rest in the
Brockett cemetery. To them were born three chil-
dren: (i) Edna C. married William Snagg, of

ond husband she wedded Sajiiuel Clark, and they
make their home witli our subject. Their children

In early life Mr. Potter affiliated with the Dem-
ocratic party, but since the Civil war has been a
stanch Republican. He is a temperance man and
active member of the Second Baptist Church of
^\'aterbury, in which he has served as deacon for
the past five years. He has been a member of the
school committee, and has always given his support
to those enterprises calculated to advance the moral,
intellectual or material welfare of his town or coun-
ty. He is therefore numbered among the valued
and useful citizens of his community, and by all
who know him he is held in high regard.
JOHN JUSTUS WARNER, a well-known
farmer and highly-esteemed citizen of Cheshire,
New Haven county, was born in the town of
Hamden, this county. Sept. 8, 1840, son of Alonzo
and Ruth Ann (Chatfield) Warner, and grandson
of Simeon T. and Cynthia T. (Tuttle) Warner.
The grandfather was also a native of Hamden and
a farmer by occupation. His children were Alonzo ;
Emma ; James, a sea captain ; Truxon ; \'ina : and
Alonzo Warner, father of our subject, was born
iit 1812 in Hamden, and there passed his bo.vhood
and youth. He was married in Bethany, this coun-
ty, but continued to make his home throughout life
in Hamden, where he died in 1892. His widow is
still living, and resides in Birminghaju, Conn. In
their family were seven children, namely: Charles,
who was a member of the loth Conn. V. I. during
the Civil war. and now resides on the old home
farm in Hamden ; John Justus, our subject ; Sarah,
wife of Wales Chatfield, of Oxford ; George Will-
iam, of New Haven, now deceased; Emma, Mrs.
Daniel Holbrook, of Ansonia ; Frank, a resident
of Florida ; and Birdsey, a resident of Ansonia.
In the town of his nativity John Justus \\'arner
grew to manhood and attended school. Later he
engaged in farming there until after the Civil war
broke out, when he enlisted, in September, 1861,
in Company K, 6th Conn. V. I., for three years,
as a teamster. He was appoi!ite

term of enlistment he was honorably discharged in
\'irginia, in September, 1864, and later served in
the government employ as a civilian wagonmaster
until the close of the war, looking after teams,
having wagons painted, and keeping everything in
order. When hostilities ceased and his services
were no longer needed he returned to Hamden
and resumed farming. For some time he made his
home in Bethany, where he still owns a good farm,
but in 1896 he came to Cheshire and purchased the
Daniel Humiston farm, upon which he has since
successfully engaged in agriculture.
In 1866, in Hamden, Mr. Warner was united
in marriage with Mrs. Mary E. Smith (widow of
Edgar Smith), who was born in Bethany, a daugh-
ter of Kneeland and Ann (Andrews) Down?, na-
tives of Wolcott and Bethany, respectivel) . Mr.
Warner and his wife have four children : John.
who is married and lives in New Haven; Minnie,
now Mrs. Harry Munson, of Cheshire; Burton ; and
Marshall. Socially Mr. Warner is a member of
.\dmiral Foote Post, No. i, G. A. R., of New
Haven, and politically he is identified with the Re-
publican party. He served as assessor in the town
of Bethany, and his duties of citizenship have al-
ways been most faithfully and conscientiously dis-
HENRY BEVERLY HALL was born May
31, 18.^5. in South Main street, Wallingford, a son
of John Parsons Hall, whose birth occurred Nov.
18, 1808, in Wallingford, where he died June 4.
The father of our subject was a farmer, and at
one time in his life manufactured razor strops and
combs. A Whig in early life, he became a Re-
publican on the formation of the party, and served
on the school committee. A member of the Con-
gregational Church, he stood well in the comnuuiity.
A home man in every sense of the word, the do-
mestic virtues strongly prevailed in his character,
and to his family he was all a husband and a fa-
ther should be. Mr. Hall and Miss Eunice Hotch-
kiss were married Oct. 20, 1833. Mrs. Hall was
born July 9, 1812, a daughter of Timothy Ilotcn-
kiss, of \\'olcott. To Mr. and Mrs. Ilall were
born the following children: (i) Henry Beverly
is mentioned below. (2) John Randolph, born in
1837, died in Chicago June 4, 1893, while in at-
tendance upon the World's Fair, representing the
William Rogers Mfg. Co. For many years he was
a wholesale dealer in notions and hosiery in New
York. (3) Frederick Hotchkiss, born July 28,
1849, lives in New York City, where he is con-
nected with the wholesale house of Porter Broth-
ers. He married Miss Agnes Hall, daughter of
Joel Hall. (4) Charles S. is mentioned below.
Dr. Rice Hall, the grandfather of the above
named children, was Iwrn in Wallingford May 8.
1784, and followed farming. Me was also exten-
sively engaged in teaming, before the era of rail-
roads, running an express between between \\'al-
lingford and New Haven. A man of strong con-
victions, he was a stanch Whig, and a devout mem-
ber of the Congregational Church. It is said that
he only missed one service in fifty years, and tliat
was caused by an accident which compelled him to
stay at home.
Henry Beverly Hall was born in Wallingford,
where he received his education in the common
school. For one vear he was a student in Rus-

sell's Military School, New Haven. Leaving school
when nineteen vcars of age, he helped his father on
the farm for about two years, when he went-to the
city of Xew York to take a ])Osition as entry clerk
with the jobbing house of Jolin I. Hinchnian & Co.,
later on becoming a partner in the concern. In
1874 he returned to Wallingford to clerk for Leon-
ard B. Bishop, the proprietor of an agricultural im-
plement store in New Haven, Conn. After a year
with that gentleman Mr. Hall secured a position as
traveling saleman for the R. Wallace & Sons Manu-
facturing Co.. being the first representative of that
company to go on the road. For ten years he re-
mained with them, covering the territory from
:Maine to Kansas City, and from Canada to Ken-
tuckv. Mr. Hall's next engagement was with Simp-
son.'Hall, Miller & Co., and he was their representa-
tive in Xew York, I'hiladelphia, Washington and
Baltimore. After one year spent with that house,
Mr. Hall went on the road in the interest of the
Bristol Brass & Clock Co., continuing with them for
four vears. At the present time he is devoting all
his thought and care to his extensive real estate in-
terests. In i8()3 Mr. Hall was one of the origina-
tor.- of the Biggins-Rodgers Co., manufacturers
of all kinds of hollow ware, and employing about
fiftv hands. Mr. Hall is .secretary of that corpora
tion. ()ur sul)ject is a strong Republican, and ac-
tive in political affairs. He was elected warden in
i8y6. again in 1897, and a third time in 1899. An
attendant of the First Congregational Church, he
takes a deep interest in the welfare of the church,
and is a liberal supporter of its principles.
Mr. Hall and ^liss Susan Parker were married
t. 17, 1866. They had no children. Mrs. Hall
