Hi Rebecca - we were in touch earlier this year. Good to hear from you. Elizabeth (Barley) Hall, Isaac Hall, and their son, Amos Hall all converted to Mormonism and as part of that, emigrated to the US and specifically to Utah in the early 1870s. It's fascinating to me that a mother and father would leave their children (granted they were all adults when they left) but still....I believe they were not doing well financially - Isaac was a shepherd and perhaps there were promises of a better life in the US? We can only speculate but there is info out there about the history there...http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/mormon/history/uk.sh...
I am not Mormon but was in Salt Lake City on business this summer and drove the 2 hrs to see their graves.
Merry Christmas Rebecca from your distant cousin, Lauren
