(VII) Nelson Gershom Hinckley, the subject proper of these lines, was born Aug. 20, 1820, in Hartford, Conn., and has always resided in that city. ln 1854, as above stated, he succeeded to his father's dry-goods and millinery business, and continued same until 1875, in which year he retired, the establishment having retained the same name for over half a century.
On Sept. 19, 1849, Nelson Gershom Hinckley was married in New Hartford, Conn., to Minerva Rossiter Hotchkiss, who was born at New Hartford June 3, 1826, and is a direct descendant of John Marsh, a first settler of Hartford; of Gov. Webster, the fifth governor of the Connecticut Colony; and of Joseph Wadsworth, of "Charter Oak" fame. Òî this union was born, Sept. 28, 1850, one son, Howard Nelson, who on Nov. 2, 1871, married Belle Eliza, daughter of Dwight Slate, of Hartford, and five children have been born to them, their names and dates of birth being as follows :
Harriet Rossiter, May 19, 1874 (she married Nov. 2, 1898, Ferdinand Favor Norris, of Dedham, Mass.) ; Clara Belle, Sept. 17, 1879; Robert Horace, March 28, 1882; Lena Howard, Dec. 29, 1885; and Samuel Dwight, May 13, 1888 (died 1àï. 23, 1891).
Nelson G. Hinckley has for many years been prominently identified with military and civic societies. In 1840 he was a member of the First Company, of Governor's Foot Guard, in 1845 was elected captain, and was also captain of the Veteran Association; in 1864 was commissioned a lieutenant in the Putnam Phalanx, under Major Allyn. In 1854 he was appointed, by the General Assembly. quartermaster-general of the State, on the staff of Gov. Dutton; and in 1876 was tendered the oñîce of division quartermaster, on the staff of Brig.-Gen. Guyer. He was foreman of one of the old volunteer ñre companies, and a member of the Board of Fire Department; in 1880 was elected president of the Firemen's Benevolent Society, in which incumbency he remained until 1899. 'He was elected a member of the city council for four successive years (187882), and a member of the board of relief of the town for ñve years in succession, 1880 to 1884, both inclusive.
Fraternally Mr. Hinckley is one of the prominent Freemasons in the State, and his connection with the craft has been distinguished for rare enthusiasm throughout. The following is a brief record of his career in Masonry: Initiated in St. John's Lodge, No. 4, Jàï. 18, 1860; worshipful master, 1865; treasurer of the lodge from 1872 to 1887, when he was again elected worshipful master; was exalted to the degree of Royal Arch Mason, in Pythagoras Chapter, No. 17, Feb. 1, 1862; elected high priest in 1869; was elected one of the trustees of the Grand Chapter of Connecticut in 1870, and has held that oñìce until the present time. In May, 1870, he was elected one of the trustees of the Grand Lodge of Connecticut, and has held that position thirty years (still serving), acting as chairman, having custody of the funds of the Grand Lodge of Connecticut, and also the funds of the Masonic Charity Foundation until the incorporation of the Masonic Home at Wallingford. He was received and greeted in Wolcott Council, No. I, at Hartford, Nov. 12, 1863, but never served that body in a. working capacity, his interest centering more in the lodge and chapter.
Mr. Hinckley is a typical representative of the good old school, and, in his bearing among men, and his companions and associates, he retains many of the qualities which distinguished his early ancestors as men of gallantry, loyalty and courtesy, and he holds the respect of those who know him for his thorough manhood, dignity of character, honesty of purpose, and gentlemanly bearing. In his business or Masonic relations he has always been distinguished for method, persistence, and a uniform correctness in all things; while in private life he is held in high esteem and regard.
