One of the greatest of the many industries that are located at Rome, Oneida county, New York, and that contributes greatly to the prosperity of the city and the Mohawk valley, is the Rome Brass & Copper Company, of which Barton Haselton is president. He was born in Rome, on January 12, 1877, the son of Jonathan Sawyer Haselton, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this history.

Barton Haselton obtained his elementary education in the grade and high schools of Rome, and then attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at Cambridge, Massachusetts, for four years. He then returned to Rome and entered the employment of the Rome Brass & Copper Company, starting to work in the factory and learning the business on its manufacturing side from the bottom up. Mr. Haselton left the shops to become assistant secretary and treasurer of the company, was promoted to the post of secretary and treasurer, and at the death of his father, in 1908, succeeded him as president and general manager, positions he has filled with success to the present time. He is also a director of the Rome Trust Company, of the Rome Manufacturing Company, and of the Rome Hollow Wire & Tube Company. During the World war Mr. Haselton served on the brass committee of the munitions board, and served as a member of the water board of the city of Rome for two terms.

On June 6, 1906, in London, England, Mr. Haselton was married to Miss Milicent F. Hogg, daughter of Robert Hogg of London, England. Mrs. Haselton is a member of the Rome Hospital board, the Old Ladies' Home board and the Woman's Club. Mr. and Mrs. Haselton have two children: Barbara, born January 14, 1910; and Joan, born November 7, 1913. Mr. Haselton is a republican in his political views, and in his religious convictions is a member of the Baptist church. Mr. Haselton is not affiliated with any secret societies, but is a member of the Rome Chamber of Commerce, of which he was one of the organizers and the first president. He also belongs to the Teugega Country Club, the Old Colony Club of New York, the Adirondack League Club and the Rome Club. He takes an active interest in civic affairs and his favorite recreations are fishing, shooting and golf.
