Biographical Sketch of Edward Hall

Roscoe F. Hall, supervisor of Ontario county, New York, and prominently identified with a number of measures for the improvement and advancement of the community in which he resides, is one of the wellknown farmers of that section of the country. His forbears are to be found in England, and members of the family emigrated to this country in the early colonial days and are now (1910) to be found in all parts of the United States.

(I) Edward Hall, grandfather of the above mentioned, was born in England, and emigrated to America in 1800. He purchased the land on which Roscoe F. Hall now (1910) resides and which became the family homestead, having been in uninterrupted possession of the family since that time. Mr. Hall built the first dwelling-house himself, of logs which he himself felled and prepared for this purpose
