    Excerpt from Burlington, Connecticut: Historical Address

    About 1774 Simeon Hart came from Southington, and settled at first in the southeastern part of the town, but soon removed to the geographical center. While he was build ing his first barn, the work was interrupted and the town thrown into excitement by the news that a battle had taken place between Massachusetts farmers and British troops at Lexington. Zebulon Cole and Zebulon Frisbie were prob ably ahead of him as settlers in the center, and these three men became most prominent in the early life of the com munity. Simeon Hart was chosen Justice of the Peace by the General Court in May, 1779,9he was one of the first deacons of the Congregational church, and when the town of Bristol was formed he was one of its first board of selectmen, and its first representative to the General Court. His wife died on January 11th, 1800; after her funeral in the church, Mr. Hart felt unable to go to the cemetery, and returned home. As he entered the vacant house, he fell dead. Mrs. Hart's body was thereupon brought back to thehouse, and on the following day they were buried in one grave. His third son inherited his name, and also his dis tinction as a public man. He was chosen town clerk eleven years in succession, and was for thirty or more years Justice of the Peace. Bliss Hart, second son of Simeon, Sr., was was also a Justice, and many times elected Representative.

    The houses of Zebulon Cole and Zebulon Frisbie, both in Shin Hollow, about half a mile southeast of here, were called taverns, which probably means little more than that they kept a supply of New England rum to sell to the neighbors and had house and barn room enough to lodge an occasional stranger and his horse; and the meetings of the ecclesiastical society were for many years usually held at one or the other of these two houses. There was not then thought to be any great incompatibility between spir ituous and spiritual refreshment. One of the early town meetings, held in the meeting house, was adjourned for fifteen minutes to the house of Zebulon Frisbie; whether this meant that they were to go on with the meeting there, or that a visit of fifteen minutes to the tavern would add to the spirit of the meeting, I do not know.
