Sheldon Truman Hitchcock, son of Benjamin
Truman, and the subject of this memoir, was bom
Dec. 13, 1822, at the homestead in town of Water-
bury, and received his education in part at the dis-
trict schools, and in part at a private school. Un-
til he was thirty-three years old he worked for his
father, and then bought the Maple Lake farm, on
the old turnpike near Judge Hill, town of Wolcott,
known first as the Lewis farms ; it is a tract of 400
acres, and the house was formerly a hotel owned
by Reuben Lewis. Here Mr. Hitchcock has lived
for forty-five years, during which time he has made
vast improvements and has added "300 acres to the
original place, so that the farm lies in the towns of
Cheshire and Wolcott. Besides general farming,
including dairying and stock raising, he deals
largely in wood, and he is noted for honesty and in-
tegrity in all his transactions.

On Oct. 26, 1855. Shelton T. Hitchcock was
married to Cornelia C. Andrews, who was born in
the town of Wolcott, Aug. 22. 1833, a daughter of
Chester and Olive L. (Bassett) Andrews, and
granddaughter of Luther and Martha (Thomas)
Andrews. She is a lady of refinement, a good
mother, wife and helpmeet in every sense of the
word. Children were born to this honored couple
as follows: Jennie J., born ^larch 25, 1857. mar-
ried William "R. Steele, of Waterbury; Xettie C,
born Aug. 22, i860, married George J- Alexander;
Eva, born Sept. i, 1862. died Sept. 8, 1862; and
Elbert, bom Nov. 7, 1867, died Jan. i, 1888. The
last named was a young man of excellent repute,
highly educated and clever, and his taking away
so early in life was a sad bereavement to his par-
ents and friends. Mrs. Martha (Thomas) An-
drews, grandmother of Mrs. Hitchcock, was a sis-
t-er of Scth Thomas, the noted clock manufacturer
of Thomaston, Conn., while the wife of Setii
Thomas was Laura Andrews, a sister of Luther

-Viidrews, and daughter of William Andrews, a
captain in the Revolutionary army. Albert A. An-
drews, brother of Mrs. Hitchcock, served three
years in the Civil war, and now lives in Brooklvn,
New York.

In politics 3,1 r. Hitchcock is a stanch Democrat,
and has filled several positions of honor and trust

■ in the gift of his party, but at all times represented
the people, regardless of politics. He was elected
to the State Legislature six terms, namely : 1859,
1 87 1, 1872, 1874, 1878 and 1879, and sat in the old
house at Hartford the last time, and at the first
session in the new house, also the last session in the
old New Haven house. For twelve years he served
as a member of the board of selectmen for the town
of Wolcott, during several of which years he was

i its chairman ; was a member of the board of relief ;
has served as assessor; and was elected grand juror
and justice of the peace, but declined these offices.
He is very domestic in his life and habits, and tem-
perate in all things. In business matters he is con-

' ceded to be the most successful farmer in Wolcott,
and by hard work, judicious management and
sound judgment he has earned a comfortable com-

George Benjamin Hitchcock, brother of Shelton
T., was bom Sept. 16, 1838, on the home farm, in
the town of Waterbury, and all his life has engaged

■ in agricultural pursuits on the ^Meriden road. He
married Helen Alexander, daughter of John Alex-

I ander, and sister to George J. Alexander, of Wat-
erbury, and three children have come to their union :
Irving, born in 1869, died in 1881 ; Warren B., born
in 1872, was married in 1892 to Helen S. Frost,
adopted daughter of Mrs. Charles Frost ; and Fan-

HENRY B. GRISWOLD, retired, who during
his active years was one of the best known bu?iness
men of Guilford, was born in that town Nov. 25,
1824, son of Joel and Polly (Bartlett) Griswold.

Mr. Griswold commenced his studies in the
home district, and completed his studies with two
terms in a select school. As he was the eldest son,
he had to help his father in the work, and remained
at home until he reached his majority, when he mar-
ried and removed to Clinton, where he was a farmer

•■ for some years. Returning to Guilford he became
employed on a tract of land near the old homestead,
on which he made extensive improvements and also

I took up the lumbering business. At first he cut and
furnished ties and timber for the New York, New
Haven & Hartford Shore Line. He cut and shipped
timber for the construction of the largest sailing ves-
sel built in America, and in all furnished timber for
more than thirtv shios. Later he branched out more
extensively, organizing the Griswold Lumber Co.,
with headquarters at Chicasro. of which he was
president and his son H. W. secretary and treas-



urer. The company did a business of more than
$100,000 a year, furnishing more than ten miihon
feet of white oak timber for the Michigan Central
railroad ; considerable for the Grand Trunk rail-
road ; and also supplying the World's Fair with a
large quantity of timber. They thoroughly investi-
gated the lumber resources of the West, from Win-
nipeg to Texas, and had altogether twenty-five
mills in different parts of the country, their mill
products going to all parts of the world. Our
subject furnished piles for a number of docks in
New York, and timber for many of the elevators
of that city. During the time he was in business
he dealt with many railroad men in the United
States and Canada, and has met many of the lead-
ing men of the country. He refused an offer of the
Canadian Pacific railroad to look after their lum-
.ber interests, at a salary of $3,000 a year. He
spent one winter and part of several summers in
the Adirondacks, in the interest of Thomas C.
Durant, the builder of the Union Pacific railroad,
locating an old survey for a railroad from Saratoga
to Sacket's Harbor, on Lake Ontario, stocking his
mills, and looking over timber lands, of which he
had six hundred thousand acres. During the Civil
war Mr. Griswold furnished the government with
timber for war vessels then building, as well as for
docks. Mr. Griswold is a reader of character, antl
a keen judge of men and events. He worked hard
at whatever he had in hand, and commanded the
respect of his fellow men in every walk of life.

Mr. Griswold married, Nov. 25, 1845, Miss
Polly E. Wilcox, who was born Oct. 21. 1825,
daughter of Selah Wilcox, of Clinton. She died
Aug. 19, 1866, and was buried in the Alderhood
cemetery. To this union came two children: (i)
Emelyn, born Sept. 26, 1847, '^ the widow of
James A. Dudley, who died in 1897, and was buried
in Alderhood cemetery. They had five children —
Lillian E., born Oct. 21. 1871 : Harry C. born July
31, 1878, now a student at Harvard; Ernest Gris-
wold, born in August, 1880, now at Leland Stan-
ford University : Alice Griswold. born June 22,
1883; and Laura Eliot, born Feb. 14. 1886. (2)
Henry Wilcox, born Feb. 21, 1850, received a good
business education, and was engaged in the lum-
ber business with his father as partner. He is now
the general manager of three cold storage ware-
houses — located respectivelv in Jersey City. Spring-
field, Mass., and Albany — of the Eastern States Re-
frigerating Co., whose home office is in New York
City. He is a thorough business man and has
been very successful. He married Mettie M. Mor-
rison, who had more than a local reputation in
music and art, and to this union came one child,
Ruth, who is now in the Guilford high school. Mrs.
Henry Wilcox Griswold died April 18, 1896, in

known citizens of Madison, Conn. To this union
came one child, Herbert H., who was born Jan. 2,
1876, and died xMay 6, 1882.

Mr. Griswold is a Republican, with strong in-
dependent proclivities. He was selectman for two
terms, and has lieen justice of the peace and grand
juror of the United States Court. In rehgion he

took a deep interest in its work. In his home he was
an indulgent father, a kind and devoted husband,
and liis genuine worth and manly virtues were wide-
ly recognized. He never acted except from honest
liictives, and in all his varied relations, in business
