Can't remember if we have written either. I have a copy of where the land of Barnabas Hall was distributed to his children in 1814. I believe he died between May 1811 and May 1812. In May 22, 1811 Barnabas Hall deeded land to William Hall for 150 acres, proven by a Jesse Nealms according to the court minutes of Sampson Co. On May 1812 William Hall was made administrator of the Barnabas Hall estate and it states that he is the son of Barnabas. Other children are listed as Nathan, Keziah (Owen Hall her husband drew her lot),Raiford, found in the Sampson Co census of 1850 and other years prior to that, he never left the state that I know of. Other children of Barnabas are Rachel,Hester, Catherine, Allen,(who died in 1829 and was married to Anna Mary Hair possibly the daughter of Martin Hair.) Tobias, Henry, and Matthew, (who sold his land to his sister Jane in 1832 and possibly left area.) I am looking for the father of Raiford Halls in the 1840 census of Sampson Co. He is either the son of William or Mathew, I believe but have no proof. He is on the same page with Duncan, Moses and Reddin Hall so I suppose they lived near by or were related in some way. In reference to your info on a Wilson Hall, I am not positive that this is the person your are referring to or not but it is possible. A Burrell Wilson fathered a bastard child on the body of a Sarah Hall according to the Sampson Co cout minutes of Aug 20 1810 and he offered as his security on the 200 pound bond a Phillip Tew and Matthew Strickland. Hope this helps you. I am trying to connect some dots in another area. By any chance do you know the father of Enoch Hall shown on the 1850 in Bladen Co as being 72 yrs old and a Thomas H. Hall in same census and county living with son James W. Hall. Thomas is abt 70 in that census. I wonder if they are brothers and if there are any others Halls in Bladen Co. related to these two. Thanks for any info on this as I think there is a connection somewhere up a generation or two, with Barnabas.
