My great grandmother was Nancy Hall, orphaned by her parents during Civil War. Through my own research of the 1840,50 & 60 Pittsylvania Censuses, I've concluded that her parents were a Nancy Shelhorse and James M. Hall, married in Oct. 29, 1846. Nancy Shelhorse was a sister of William H. Shelhorse. William and Mary Shelhorse signed on Nancy & James marriage certificate.
Nancy Hall was raised by an aunt and uncle and listed on the 1860 Census with them. Family tradition has it that her aunt was a Nancy Hall who married Azariah Bailey. I have copies of both these marriage certificates. Also James M. Hall was related as a brother I think to G. W. Hall listed next door to each other on the 1850 Census, the Shelhorse family were also neighbors.
