Excerpt from Business Men of the City of Hartford (Connecticut) In the Year, 1799: Men of the Printed From the Original Manuscript With Notes Believing the following list of former residents of Hartford engaged in business at the close of the eighteenth century, to be of some local interest, the manuscript has been printed with the hope it may prove useful in determining the occupation of some of the inhabitants of that period, and be of service in other ways. Many of the names on the list are familiar to the present generation, descendants of those who more than a century ago were in the fulness of life and the activities thereof, w, perhaps forgotten by those who have profited by their industry and success. Among the names, the reader may chance upon that of an ancestor, a relative far removed; give them a kindly thought in passing, and remember a century hence their own name may have been long forgotten, even unkwn, save to some antiquary delving among the records of the past.
