Note for:   Henry HALL,   ABT 1774 - 24 DEC 1846         Index

Burial:   
     Place:   Campbell Cemetery

Individual Note:
     Recent DNA evidence shows that descendents of Juniper match Reuben's descendents on all 37 markers exactly, and is only one marker off on Henry. This indicates a strong likelihood that Juniper, Henry and Reuben were close relatives, probably brothers, based on dates of birth.

According to Hall family lore, Henry was born "near Hagerstown, Maryland, around 1774." I have yet to find a record linking Henry to Maryland, although there were several Hall families who owned property in the Hagerstown area. Lucy Dodd, who did much research on the Halls, had access to two of Henry's daughters, who lived into their nineties; yet, she produced no reference to Henry's parents. This tells us that he either didn't know his parentage or would not talk about it.

The earliest reference of Henry is a personal property tax record for 1793. In it, he is living with a George Shively, who was an overseer on one of the Lee farms in Cameron Parish, Loudoun County, VA. The Shively family was known to take in orphans, so Henry may have been one, too. By 1795, Henry is listed alone on the same tax roll. Thomas Harper is also listed on these tax rolls and Henry's 1800 marriage to Thomas' daughter took place in Loudoun County, also.

Henry probably followed Thomas to Pittsylvania County, VA around 1801, when Thomas Harper purchases over 1,000 acres of land in one year. In 1805, Henry purchased 420 acres from Howson Clark and, in the next month, another 50 acres from his father-in-law. In 1806, Henry sold 219 acres to Reuben Hall, who probably was a brother to Henry. This could indicate the "splitting" of an estate or something similar.

According to the book, Early Settlers of Sangamon County, and Lucy Dodd Miller's notes, Henry Hall lived in Pittsylvania Co, VA with his wife till 1816. Children Nancy, Aaron, Thomas, Washington and Thompson were all born there. The family moved to Martin Co, IN (near Loogootee) in 1816 and Sally Ann, Henry Jr. and Emily were born in Indiana. The Henry Halls arrived in Loami Twp. in October, 1828 and settled about 200 yds. East and 100 North of the old South Fork Church location, near the South Fork branch of Lick Creek, in what is now Section 26 (W2SW) of Loami Twp. The oldest son, Aaron, settled 1/4 mile north and Washington (called "Wash") settled west of the old church.
