Descendants of William Hall

One reason I am putting this information up is because I have long felt that this William Hall is kin to our Leonard Hall, b. in Maryland ca 1730.  Who were William's brothers?  Where did they live?   Note the names of William and Kizah!    (In an recent e-mail, Norma Harris said that our Leonard is not related to this William)

Norma Harris, a descendant of Hezekiah Hall,   recently published a book, BEFORE & AFTER THE HOUSE OF FOURTEEN HALLS,  A Hall Family History of Bedford and Franklin Cos. VA. 

Please remember, use the following information as a guide and research tool only.  We do not know that the information is entirely correct.  This information was forwarded to me by Diane C.

If you would like to add more to this Hall family, I would be happy to put the information up and give you credit. 


1. WILLIAM1 HALL was born 1710 in England, and died May 01, 1757 in Franklin Co. Va..
    Notes for WILLIAM HALL:

William and his mother and three brothers came from England to Chester Co. Pa. about 1725, when William was 15 to avoid conscription into the English Army and later moved to Va. They lived on Gill's Creek in Bedford Co. but early records list it as Franklin Co.

William was killed by Cherokee Indians on the bank of the Staunton River, and his oldest son, John, who inherited his estate, testified in connection with William's death in Bedford Co. This hearing placed the time of the first Indian engagement, which lead to William's death.
