I am hoping to find a living male descendant of Brian Hall (1727-1778) who still has the surname Hall. Brian was born in Raynham/Taunton MA to John 3rd Hall and Mary (possibly Britton). He died and is buried in Norton, MA - married Abiah Crossman - he had a son Silas Hall who m. Nancy Stanley - I believe this is the only line with male Hall descendants. Most seemed to stay in the Bristol County, MA/Providence RI area.
Silas had 6 male children - Chandler, Silas, Benjamin Stanley, Dexter, Soranus & Richard Hutchins Hall.
Chandler m. Susan Wyatt Gillet and had males Chandler Monroe Hall & William Henry Hall
Silas m. Julia Ann Smith and had males Charles Henry Hall, Silas Smith Hall, Stephen Smith Hall & George Edwin Hall
Benjamin Stanley m. Caroline J. Hodges - no male children identified
Dexter m. Abby B - no male children identified
Soranus m. Sara Ann Williams - no male children (seems to have had 3 girls)
Richard Hutchins m. Mary Ann Bates and had males Richard Henry Hall, Horatio Hutchens Hall, Silas Hall & George Edwin Hall
Please contact me if you know of any living male Hall descendants!
Kentucky was still a part of Virginia when John (no middle name) Hall was born, probably in northern Kentucky between 1823-1826. No parents or other info. identifiable at this time. He crossed the Ohio River into southern Indiana, and married and lived near Folsemville, Indiana.
I'm looking for information on my grandmother, Dora Bell Hall, she was from around Perote, al. , or the unionsprings, al., area. She was married one time to Henry Lane. Any information contact me at the above email address.
