    Notes 
    • [Byrne.FTW]

      Samuel R. Hall, probably came to Croyden, to see about some land owned by his father, and settled there as a farmer. He held the offices of constable, collector, tithingman, moderator etc., and was a soldier from that town in the revolutionary war. He had surveyed in 1794, some of the eastern townships of Canada, and purchased the half of one of them, of fraudulent parties, and on Jan. 20, 1796, he started from Croydon, with his family, to go to Canada and take possession of his purchase, and proceeded as far as Guildhall, Vt., before he knew of the fraud. The swindlers had been paid, and Mr. Hall found himself in Guildhall (which was nearly a wilderness at that time), without the means to make any more purchases. He lived in Guildhall several years, and was a great spiritual blessing to the town; the people were destitute of the preached gospel, and Mr. Hall gathered them together and conducted prayer meetings, with exhortations, and his gifts and usefulness, appeared to justify his becoming a preacher of the gospel, and he was accordingly ordained as a Congregational minister. In 1807, he removed to Rumford, Me., where he was the means of gathering a church, and became its pastor, and continued such until his death. Mrs. Hall was a feeble woman in the later years of her life.
