Cheshire County native Jonathan Davis Hale left New Hampshire to seek his fortune in the mid-1800s.  He gained wealth in his adopted state of Tennessee, only to lose it all when the Civil War began because of his support for the Union cause.  His amazing life story is the tale of wealth, happiness, patriotism, danger, loss, and finally, heartbreak and poverty.

 

Alan Rumrill has been executive director of the Historical Society of Cheshire County for 37 years.  He has written hundreds of articles and 8 books on historical subjects and has made more than 1000 local history presentations.  He is a native of Stoddard where his family has lived since 1770.
