Anne's husband Frederic L. Hall

HALL, Frederic L. Frederic Learned Hall of Essex, CT died on May 5, 2010 in the Essex Meadows Health Center. Born in Winetka, IL on June 22, 1918, "Ted" was the youngest of four children by Elizabeth Thompson Learned and Robert Everett Hall. The family moved to Plainfield, NJ in 1928, which was his home for 50 years. A 1941 graduate of the University of Virginia with a B.S. in Commerce, Mr. Hall enlisted in the U.S. Navy Reserve on this graduation day and received a commission in December 1941. He saw action in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean theaters of operation on board the light cruiser, USS Philadelphia. After participation in the landings on North Africa, Sicily and Italy, as well as the invasion of Southern France in 1944, he was transferred as Communications officer to a new carrier, USS Bonne Homme Richard, based out of Pearl Harbor. Following his active role in the Japanese surrender signing in September 1945, Mr. Hall was honorably discharged from the Navy in January 1946 as a Lieutenant. Having been selected for Lt. Commander, he declined the offer in favor of signing on as a student engineer with the New Jersey Bell Telephone Co., where he spent his entire post-war professional career. Mr. Hall ultimately retired in 1978, having served as a general manager and department head. Since that time he and his wife, Anne, have been living in Essex, CT where he has continued his lifelong active commitment to community service. Among these activities are directorships with the Essex Historical Society, the Essex Congregational Church and the Old Lyme Country Club as well as serving as President of the River Road Neighborhood Association and also President of the "Friends In Service Here" (FISH) organization, an all volunteer free driving service for medical patients. During his many years in Plainfield, Mr. Hall served as President of the Muhlenberg Hospital Board of Governors, President of the Y.M.C.A., Director and Special Gifts Chairman of the United Fund, as well as being a tireless fund raiser for various projects in Plainfield and Newark, NJ. In addition, he was President of the Point O' Woods Assembly and a Director and Vice President of the Point O' Woods Association, a summer community on Fire Island, NY where he was a home owner for six years. Mr. Hall leaves his wife of 65 years, Anne Garrigues Wigton hall, a daughter, Susanne Hall Alford of Summit, NJ, a son Frederic Wigton Hall of Weston, CT, four grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Mr. Hall would have been 92 next month. A private family burial service will be held in Essex and a Memorial service, also in Essex, will follow at a later date, with a venue to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Essex Meadows Health Center, FISH, or the Point O' Woods Community Fund.

June 13, 2012 Email from Rick Detwiller

'Glad people are enjoying these as much as we are. Attached is the jpeg of Laura C. Detwiller. For some reason it was still in PhotoShop so that explains the download problem. It should be fine this time.

I thought you'd also like to see our Swiss cousin Alfred Seiler's cartoon of the 1928 Plainfield Horse Show It shows Freddie, Dad's sister Marguerite Detwiller (Harwood) , and I think one of the Wigton girls who fell off the horse and landed in the mud puddle. Also attached is a photo ca.May-June 1954 of Krolls, Detwillers, Campbells, Wigtons and Stuarts et al watching a neighborhood horseshow. Not necessarily Garden Club, but classics!

Email today from the Drake House:

There is a Netherwood House Tour on September 14, 2014, from 1-5PM. Details are on the attached flyer. [See Below]

One of the homes was designed by Evarts Tracy, architect. He also built the old Muhlenberg Hospital and the old Plainfield Police Station, and was the pioneering camouflage officer for the US government during WWI. It is spectacular on the outside.

Thank you for your support of Plainfield.

Historical Society of Plainfield


The Tracy Family had many many family members in the Plainfield Garden Club. They included:

Tracy, Mrs. Evarts '22
Tracy, Mrs. Howard Crosby (Minerva Bingham Lamson) '15
Tracy, Mrs. J. Evarts (Caroline Frederica Streuli) '22

These three women open the doors for many more familial Plainfield relations which include the Cox, Streuli and Perkins clans. The Tracy family also boasts a special architectural & artist relationship to Mrs. Mead. In fact, there should be a home tour just using these families' abodes!

The Tracy family lived at 1009 Hillside Avenue – which sits directly behind 1330 Prospect Avenue which is currently owned by Shakespeare Garden helper Virginia Carroll.

Interestingly enough, 1330 Prospect Avenue was said to have been built by Mrs. Streuli, who lived on the next block of Hillside at #1035. Mrs. Streuli also lived at 1331 Prospect Avenue. Yes, that's correct – the next house over! Mrs. Streuli's daughter, PGC member Caroline, married the Tracy boy at 1009 Hillside and well, lets just say, Caroline didn't get too far from both her PGC mother and mother-in-law. Did she have any choice about joining the PGC!?!

Eight homes in Netherwood are photographed on the flyer – does anyone know the addresses? It would be interesting for all of us to see if they once belonged to one of our members!
