I certainly hope you can "figure" out this ancestry? I say that 'cause findagrave memorials in Williamson, IL are definitely confusing. According to findagrave, Pettus died in 1864.(lol) He also had three other kids that do not appear, on any census, with parents: Pettus and Nancy. Illinois death certificates identify Pettus and Nancy as parents of Henry Pettes Priddy (1860-1928) and Paulina Priddy Gill Burk (1859-1941). There is no reference to the Hall siblings. I'm not related otherwise I'd be tempted to travel to Illinois and/or Missouri to learn more.
