Hall, Daniel M.

Rome Sentinel
May 1, 1908

Was Under Treatment for Heart Trouble--Had Long Been a Resident and Business Man of Rome--Prominent in Politics and Popular with All.

Daniel M. Hall of this city, whose death occurred on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. had gone to Clinton just a week before and entered a sanitarium where he was under treatment for heart trouble. On Monday he took cold which developed pneumonia and pleurisy and caused his death.

Daniel Mills Hall was born in Verona Oct 22, 1849. In his boyhood he attended the district schools and later finished his education at the Oneida Seminary, Oneida. About 1871 he went to Minneapolis, Minn., and for several years was employed by the American Express Company as messenger. He was an expert bookkeeper and in 1878 he came to Rome and entered the employ of the late James S. Dyett, who then conducted a large grocery store on W. Dominick street. He remained with Mr. Dyett several years and later employed by the late Fred J. Brigge and also Contractor William J. Cramond. His last work in this line was for the wholesale grocery firm of A. Ethridge & Co., with whom he remained for six years. In 1909, a few months after the Rome Home Telephone Company’s plant was established, Mr. Hall took the position of manager. He was eminently successful in this capacity and did a great deal to build up the business of the company. In the spring of 1903 he resigned his position with the telephone company and went into business for himself. He bought the interest of William Newcomb in the metal sign business of Putnam & Newcomb, which then was located in Daniel O’Connell’s building at the foot of Court street, and the firm became Putnam & Hall. Within a few months thereafter they bought the two story brick factory at 420 W. Court street and moved there business there. About three years ago, the J. H. Matthews Company of Pittsburg, Pa., bought Mr. Putnam’s interest in the business and Mr. Hall became a member of the company. He took charge of the plant here and thus continued until his death. The business is a very successful one.

Mr. Hall was a member of Roman Lodge No. 233, F and A. M., Rome Council, No 150, R. A., Rome Tent, Knights of the Maccabees, of which he had been commander, Junior Order of American Mechanics, of which he had been councilor and senior past councilor, and Foresters of America, of which he had been chief ranger. In politics he was an earnest Republican, and was prominent in the councils of his party. He served the third ward as alderman, being one of few Republicans ever elected in that ward. Last year he was president of the Rome Republican Club and at the time of his death was serving his second year as chairman of the Republican city committee. He was an excellent public speaker and had made many nominating speeches in Republican conventions. His last appearance in a gathering of the members of his party was at Herkimer on Saturday, April 18, when he was made chairman of the Republican congressional district convention.

Mr. Hall was a man of keen observation and rare intelligence. He was a wide reader of good literature, both poetry and prose. He was one of the best Shakespearean students in the city, and often used quotations from the great playwright to emphasize his points. A man of the most kindly and genial dispositions, he made friends without effort and was very popular with all who knew him. He always looked on the bright side of things and was ever ready to assist a friend in trouble. His death is greatly regretted by all who knew him and the sincerest sympathy will be extended to the sorrowing relatives.

On May 12, 1875, Mr Hall married Miss Katie Kneaskern of Verona, who with one son, W. K. Hall, of this city survived. He also leaves two brothers and one sister, Harvey S. Hall of Verona, Jason Hall of Racine, Wis., and Mrs. Emma Maycock of Verona.

The remains of Mr. Hall were brought from Clinton today and the funeral will be held at the family residence, 739 Armstrong avenue, on Sunday at 1 p.m. (Note Burial in Verona Cemetery)

Mr. H. had been an employee of the Rome Watertown & Ogdensburgh Railroad company ever since the first train was run over the road.

October 14, 1938

For the second time within two weeks in this area, an accidental gun shooting proved fatal with the death last night of Jason Hilts, 11, son of Mrs. and Mrs. Henry W. Hilts, Blossvale, RD.

The Hilts youngster was accidently shot through the heart and died almost instantly when a shotgun was held in the hands of his brother, Raymond, 15, went off as three brothers and sisters looked on.

The five Hilts children were were gathered in the kitchen of their farm home when Raymond had prepared and served supper in the absence of their parents.

After the meal Raymond took down a rifle from a peg over a door leading into a bedroom, invesigators were told. He made sure it was unloaded and after pulling the trigger a few times went to another wall and took down a shotgun.

Working the bolt action model, Raymond pulled the trigger. There was a deafening roar and Jason slumped forward on the chair where he had sat holding the rifle. The older lad carried his brother into a bedroom and then ran screaming from the house. His parents arrived at the same time and rushed to the bedside just as their son died.

Questioned by Coroner Thomas A. Cox, Rome, Trooper Nelson Gydesen and District Attorney Theodore R. Davis, Camden, Raymond said he had not quarreled with his brother and that they had not been engaged in any cowboy ad Indian games.

Raymond told officials he was looking down at the gun and not in the direction he was pointing when he pulled the trigger. He said he had taken down the guns and played with them several times and also shooting the shotgun at tin cans.

Mr. and Mrs. Hilts left home early yesterday morning to spend a day at Sylvan Beach. They returned home late in the afternoon and then went out again to take friends home. it was during this interval that the tragedy occurred.

Hilts said he had inserted two shells in the shotgun early yesterday morning, intending to shoot at some crows which had been raiding his chicken yard if they appeared again. He said it was the first time he had left either gun loaded. The gun is owned by Mr. Hilts father, Raymond Hilts, Town of Ohio.

Raymond is an eighth grade pupil in the Pine School near Blossvale and Jason was in the fifth grade. The other children are Orin, 4, Caroline 5 and Freda 4.
