William Thomas Minor1

b. October 3, 1815, d. October 13, 1889
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • William Thomas Minor was born on October 3, 1815 in Stamford, Connecticut.1
  • He was the son of Simeon Minor and Catharine Lockwood.2,1
  • William Thomas Minor was graduated in 1834 from Yale College then taught, and studied law; was admitted to the bar of Fairfield county iu 1841, and forthwith gained recognition as an able and conscientious lawyer and a popular debater and orator. His standing with his fellow citizens of Stamford is indicated by his election and re-elections —- seven in all -- to the Connecticut legislature. In 1853 and 1854 he was state senator, and in 1855 was nominated for governor on the American or Know nothing ticket. He received 738 more votes than the Democratic candidate (Ingham), and 18,866 more than the Whig candidate (Dutton). There being no electiou by the people, he was chosen governor by the legislature, and at the eusuiug gubernatorial election a similar state of facts was followed by similar results. When the civil war broke out ex-Gov. Minor was especially distinguished for his zeal in support of the government and by his kindness to Federal soldiers. In 1864 he became U. S. consul-general at Havana, Cuba, by appointment of Pres. Lincoln; but resigned his work at the end of three years. It was his prompt intervention with the Spanish captain-general which secured the detention of the Confederate ram Stonewall Jackson until he could communicate with the nearest U. S. admiral. By his further representations and efforts, however, the vessel was finally surrendered to the Spanish officials before the arrival of the U. S. naval force. In 1854 he received his first judicial appointment in his election by the state house of representatives to the judgeship of the Fairfield county court. Iu 1868 he was appointed a judge of the Connecticut superior court, and served as such until 1873 with marked ability. He was then nominated for U. S. senator on the Republican ticket, and Stamford gave him the largest majority she had ever given any candidate; but he was less fortunate elsewhere, and was defeated by William H. Barnum. In 1874 he was nominated to the state senate from the 12th district; but was defeated by a fellow-citizen, Galen A. Carter. Gov. Minor was one of three commissioners appointed by the legislature in 1879 to meet a similar number from New York, to agree and decide upon the boundary line between the two states. Their report was duly accepted by both states.1
  • William married Mary C. Leeds in 1849 in Stamford, Connecticut.1
  • William Thomas Minor was jurist and twenty-first governor of Connecticut from 1855 to 1857.1
  • William died on October 13, 1889 in Stamford, Connecticut, at age 74.1
