Note for:   Robert T. HALL,   20 JAN 1914 - 7 AUG 1988         Index

Burial:   
     Place:   Sulphur Springs Cem.

Individual Note:
     Frank died shortly after his sons' births and Margaret raised the boys with the help of their unmarried aunts Eva and Lena Hall. After Frank's early death, it is thought that the Lowry boys helped farm the land till son Robert was old enough to take over.
Robert was a farmer all his life. After his father's untimely death, Robert lived in the house built by his father in Talkington Twp. The farm driveway (at Twp. Rd 13 S) runs along the border between that township and Loami Twp. The farm lies approx. 1/4 mi. west of county road 10.5W. His great grandfather "Thomps" had built his house on the Loami Twp. side to the north. It was home to Eva and Lena Hall till their deaths and was torn down in 1948. Much of the lumber was used to build the corn crib, which was converted to shelled corn storage in 1986. The calf confinement barn is now located on the site of the Thompson Hall home-stead and uses the same well. The original barn (west of the home) was torn down in 1979 and a metal storage shed sits on that site.
Electricity first came to the farm in 1938 when Robert and Irene ran a Holstein dairy farm. Robert and Irene ran a home delivery milk service for a time, but eventually shipped to a dairy instead. The concrete block dairy stanchion barn was built by Robert and Irene in 1938 and has been used as a milking parlor since 1958, with cattle sheds built on the south side of the farm, west of the dairy building.
The address of the farmstead is RR Auburn. Richard W. and Jane Hall currently farm 150 acres of the original Thompson Hall farm. Records show it was originally purchased from Gibson in the 1850's.

     According to the History of Sangamon County: James accompanied his family from TN to Sangamon County in 1851 remaining home until his marriage in 1859. He rented 120 acres of his father's land in Loami Township, on which was located a three-room house where he resided until 1866. He moved to Greene County, MO and then Lawrence County, MO but in 1867 returned to Sangamon County, buying 80 acres in Section 11 Talkington Township.
For 12 years he served as school trustee and treasurer of Talkington Township, was supervisor for 10 years, and served as Commissioner of Highways in both Loami and Talkington Townships. He was one of the original nine members of Loami's Masonic Lodge #450.
According to Lucy Dodd Miller's notes: "Uncle Jim would rather tell a joke than eat and folks say he could stop the thresher when he got a good one started because everyone wanted to hear Uncle Jim's stories. He always said he was like the little boy that said he and his dad were very much alike. His dad could tell if it was going to rain and he could tell after it rained."
