These are approximate dates of birth, taken from "Virginia Marriages"-LDS website:
Wm. S. Hall-1837
Joseph M. Hall - 1837
Elisha Henry 1840 or 1846
James Hall 1843
Most of the time they were living in Franklin County, later on some of Wm.'s descendants moved to Roanoke. Several are buried in Fairview Cemetery. I am trying to tie this Elisha to the other Halls living in Southwest Virginia. It seems that Elisha was a popular name among the Halls, but in all the records I have looked at I cannot connect him to any of them. He could have been a son of a William or a descendant of Asa or his brother Jesse who supposedly moved to the Roanoke Valley after the Revolutionary War from New York. I am stuck with this Elisha and can't go beyond him. My wife's line is from William S. Hall, who seems to have dropped off of the face of the earth by 1880. He married Mary Abigail Lavender, who is either divorced or a widow on the 1880 census of Rocky Mt, Franklin County;107 HH #7. So Elisha and William S. Hall are my thorns in the side. Thanks for answering my query.
