The author's 4th Great-Grandfather
www.heritagepursuit.com - History of
Washington County - Adams Township states that William's son Alfred was born in West
Virginia in 1802 and did not move to Adams Township until 1822. In as much as
Alfred's brother William R. Hall married Mary Missouri Sprague in Washington county, Ohio
about 10 years later, it appears likely that the entire family moved into the area in 1822
if the information in the History of Washington County is correct.
