Governor of Maine. Born in Lewes, Delaware, he was educated in Delaware and at age 19 became a Methodist minister, eventually settling in Maine, which was then part of Massachusetts. A Democratic-Republican, he served in the Massachusetts legislature from 1814 to 1819. Maine became a state in 1820, and Hall served in the Maine House of Representatives from 1820 to 1821. Governor Enoch Lincoln died in 1829 and was succeeded by Senate President Nathan Cutler. When Cutler's Senate term expired in January, 1830 he also had to vacate the governorship. Hall, who had been elected to the Maine Senate in 1829, had been named Senate President, and so succeeded Cutler. Hall completed the remainder of the Lincoln/Cutler term, serving until February, 1830. Once Jonathan Hunton, the winner of the 1829 election was sworn in as Governor, Hall returned to the Senate, completed his term. Hall then resumed a career in the ministry, remaining active almost until his death in Frankfort, Maine.
