The McDonald family liked to marry Halls. The first to marry in Bladen County was Charlotte Hall who married Smith McDonald. Very little can be found on Smith McDonald. An old Bladen County deed refers to a conveyence by Smith McDonald to Wiley Hall. Charlotte was a sister of a Wiley Hall who were children of Enoch. Wiley appears in a couple of generations of the Hall family. Enoch Hall's property was apparently in that portion of Bladen County that became a part of Cumberland County (Beaverdam Township)since Charlotte sold her interest in her father's estate which refers to Bladen County but is recorded in Cumberland County. Smith and Charlotte's son, John W. McDonald, married Lucy Ann Hall. Smith and Charlotte's grandson, William J. McDonald, Jr., married Alice Hall. One of the McDonalds that moved to Texas found a Hall in Texas to marry. A Hall become the executor of the Estate of Daniel Marshall McDonald in Fayetteville who was a relative according to Daniel's grandaughter. I have abstracts of census records and deeds on some of the Halls. Let me know what and who you are interested in.
