"ORION J. HALLOCK, an extensive farmer and land-owner of Goshen and formerly a member of the Connecticut
legislature, was born in that town, September 9, 1831, son of Dudley F. and Anna M. (Bailey) Hallock. Mr. Hallock's grandparents were Denis and Lydia (Ford) Hallock, respectively natives of Durham, N.Y., and Cornwall, Conn. Denis Hallock was a tailor by trade, and followed that occupation until his death. His children were: Julia and Dudley F. Hallock.

Dudley F. Hallock, Mr. Hallock's father, was born in Durham, and accompanied his mother to Cornwall, Conn., when he was two years of age. He learned the trade of a shoemaker, which he followed until reaching the age of thirty years; and then he acquired the trade of a carpenter. He resided in Goshen after his marriage, and died in 1840, aged thirty-three years. His wife, Anna M. (Bailey) Hallock, who was the daughter of Joseph and Reigne (Hurd) Bailey, became the

BIOGRAPHICAL REVIEW

mother of five children, as follows: Orion J., the subject of this sketch; Orson, who died when eighteen months- old; Orson, second, who died aged five years; Dudley F., who died in the army, twenty-six years old; and Asahel, who married Sarah Merwin, and has two children, respectively named George and Edward. The mother died in 1894, aged eighty-three.

Orion J. Hallock commenced to support himself at the age of eleven years. He received his education in the district schools, and in early manhood adopted agriculture as an occupation, which he has since followed with success. Being possessed of an unusual amount of energy and ability, he found the high-road to success at the very start, and has followed it with increasing fortune, until he gained a position in life seldom reached by those depending upon their own individual efforts. He has long made the stock business a specialty; and he owns and conducts a valuable stock farm, which has a wide reputation on account of the extra-fine cattle bred there. He owns over one thousand acres of land, and is one of the most extensive and successful farmers in Litchfield County. In politics he is a Democrat, and in 1876 he represented his town in the State legislature. He has also served as Constable and Collector.

In March, 1859, Mr. Hallock was united in marriage to Caroline L. Austin, daughter of Nelson and Clerena (Apley) Austin, of Goshen. Mr. and Mrs. Hallock have three children, namely: Emma A., who is now the wife of Frank E. Cutler, and has one son, named Herbert H.; Tinnie E., who is the wife of William P. Lawrence, and has one son, named William; and Herbert Gay, who is at home. Mr. and Mrs. Hallock attend the
Methodist Episcopal church."

(Recap)
Harriet Stephens married Stanley Sanford Baldwin, had William S Baldwin 04/25/1831. Became widowed and married Almon Hallock, "of Gaylordsville". (New Milford vital records show this marriage 01/01/1844.)

Almon-7, Benjamin-6,5,4, John-3, William-2, Peter-1 Hallock

She would have been 42 years of age when she married Almon and probably had no children with him. If Almon had children by a previous marriage, they are unknown to date to this observer.

Portions of the Cortland D Cole Sketch:
Pp 321-2

CORTLAND D. COLE, a prosperous
farmer and successful business man of
Washington, was born in New Mil-
ford, Conn., August 2, 1846, son of Sumner
Benjamin and Eliza (Hallock) Cole. Mr.
Cole's father, who was a native of Scotland,
came to the United States when a child, and
passed most of his boyhood years in New
York. In early manhood he became inter-
ested in railroad construction, and was en-
gaged as contractor on the Housatonic and
Naugatuck Railways. He led a busy and suc-
cessful life, and died at the age of forty-five
years. His wife, Eliza Hallock, was a daugh-
ter of William Hallock, of Kent. She reared
four children, namely: Prudence, who is now
Mrs. Edwards, and has three children ; Cort-
land D. ; Cassius; and Ida, who is now Mrs.
Hoag, and has three children. Mrs. Sumner
B. Cole still survives at the age of seventy-
two years.

Cortland D. Cole received a good education,
and at an early age developed a taste and
capacity for business pursuits which have en-
abled him to conduct successfully various im-
portant ventures. He resided for eight years
in Roxbury. In 1874 he came to Washington
and settled upon his present farm, which is
pleasantly situated and consists of seventy
acres of well-improved land. Besides carrying
on general farming he has dealt extensively in
cattle. He also has business interests of an
important nature in Bridgeport and Torring-
ton. Conn., in Florida, in Union City, and in
San Diego, Cal. He is a Democrat in poli-
tics, and served as Selectman for two years,
having also acted as Assessor and Registrar.

Part of a larger sketch:

JOHN B. WHITEHEAD, of Washing-
ton, a veteran of the Civil War, who
now owns and conducts a valuable farm
situated in the vicinity of Washington Depot,
was born in New Milford, January 4,. 1824,
son of John B., Sr., and Emeline (West)
Whitehead.

Mr. Whitehead's grandfather,
Hezekiah Whitehead, who was previously a
resident of Kent, moved from that town to
New Milford, where he passed the remainder
ot his life. He married Olive Buckley, and
raised^a family of four children, as follows:
John B., Sr. ; Sarah, who became Mrs. Hal-
lock; Lucinda, who is now Mrs. Soule; and
Turney, who married Jane Hallock."

FOUND: Jane Who Married David T Whitehead 1833

Jane-7 md David T Whitehead, Amos-6, Benjamin-5,4, John-3, William-2, Peter-1

This couple seems to fit the Turney Whitehead who married Jane Hallock in the Whitehead sketchh of Bios of Leading Citizens of Litchfield Co. (could Turney mean Turner?):

David T Whitehead married Jane Hallock, 27 Nov 1833, (New Milford, Litchfield, CT Vital Records)

Jane (Hallock) Whitehead died 04/13/1837, New Milford, Litchfield, buried Long Mountain Cemetery, New Milford, Litchfield, CT. Inscription on headstone:

"Jane C, wife of David T Whitehead & daughter of Amos & Eunice Hallock, died 04/13/1837, aged 25 years.".

See FAG Memorial and photo of headstone:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Wh...;

They were only married four years.

David T Whitehead remarried Mary Jane Seeley, 03 Apr 1843 (New Milford VRs). They are found in the 1850 census in Burlington, Bradford, Pennsylvania, USA, with no children. This suggests that David and Jane (Hallock) Whitehead did not have children, although it is possible that they did.

WILLIAM A. SULLIVAN, a pros-
perous farmer and native resident
of New Milford, Litchfield County,
Conn., son of Henry and Maria (Smith) Sulli-
van, was born on July 3, 1820. Mr. Sullivan's father
was a hatter by trade, and was
an expert workman upon silk hats. He fol-
lowed that occupation until his death, which
occurred at the age of forty-nine years, and
was caused by consumption.

His wife (Henry's wife), Maria
Smith Sullivan, who lived to the age of eighty
years, was the mother of ten children, as fol-
lows: William A., the subject of this sketch;
Betsey, who was born March 26, 1822; John
W., born June 24, 1824; Elmira J., born July
21, 1826; Mary, born in September, 1828;
Charles E., born in 1830; Angelina E., born
May 24, 1833; Olive, born August 7, 1835;
Harriet, born March 2, 1838; and Sarah, born
July 2, 1840.

William was the eldest of this large family.
His early opportunities for schooling must
have been limited, as, when only eleven years
old, he went to work for Nathan Peet, with
whom he remained until reaching the age of
seventeen. He then learned the mason's
trade, an occupation which he followed suc-
cessfully for some years, being a contractor.
He finally purchased the old Buckley farm of
fourteen acres, upon which he now resides;
and h'e later added a tract of ninety acres.
He enlarged his residence, built a new barn,
set out a large number of fruit trees, all of
which has greatly improved the appearance of
his place and enhanced its value; and he now
possesses one of the finest and best-managed
farms in this vicinity. He takes a great in-
terest in his stock, and owns some choice
cattle and sheep. He is a Democrat in poli-
tics, and has served as Assessor and member
of the School Board.

On December 25, 1846, Mr. Sullivan mar-
ried Ann Hallock, daughter of Adolphus and
Laura (Morgan) Hallock and a descendant of
Benjamin and Phebe (Prindle) Hallock, who
were the first of the family to settle in New
Milford. Her great-grandparents, William

444

and Lucy (Church) Hallock, and her grand-
parents, Benjamin and Clarissa (Pease) Hal-
lock, who were prosperous farming people
and lifelong residents of this town, were all
active members of the Congregational church. [Note -
this book gets the Hallock line a bit confused here. William
and Lucy (Church) Hallock was a son of Benjamin and Phebe (Prindle)
Hallock and brother to Benjamin and Clarissa (Peet) Hallock. Adolphus
was:

Adolphus-7, Benjamin-6,5,4, John-3, William-2, Peter-1 Hallock]

Mrs. Sullivan's father, Adolphus Hallock,
lived to reach the age of eighty-eight years.
His children were: Ann, Mrs. Sullivan; and
James M.

Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan have had
nine children:
1) the eldest, Henry, born No-
vember 7, 1847, died in 1851;
2) Charles, born
February 26, 1849, married Anna Northrop,
and has four children, namely — Margaret,
Ada, Howard, and Lottie;
3) Helen, born January II, 1852, married Gorge Marsh, and has
one child, named Mabel ;
4) Henry, born December 27, 1855, died in 1865;
5) William, born
October 14, 1856, married Mary Hoyt;
6) Ella, born October 27, 1857, married Frederick
Richmond, and has two children — Millie and
Leona;
7) Minnie, born August 25, 1859, widow
of Orrin Plumb;
8) James, born October 15,
1862, married Katie Fenn, and has four chil-
dren — Susie, George, Ruth, and Minnie; and
9) George, born June 8, 1867, married Lulu Cap-
well, and has two children — William and
Ethel.

Mr. Sullivan is a progressive and en-
ergetic farmer, who by the exercise of sound
judgment and by practical painstaking has
made his agricultural operations a pronounced
success. Both he and his wife are communi-
cants of the Episcopal church. "
