Jacob Hallman

Driver for Felton Fire Company

Photo courtesy of John Pennington

 

Notes: Jacob "Jake" Hallman was believed to be Chester's oldest fireman in 1924. He had been a driver since 1902.

Jacob Hallman is my Great Grandfather; my mother's maternal grandfather. He was born in 1860 and died in 1940. He lived on 4th street just off the corner of 4th and Yarnell, about a half block from the Felton Fire House, if I recall. I have attached a photo of Jacob in the driver's seat of his fire truck ... but I do not know the name of his horse. he was a driver for Felton, my mother still has his badge.
