The above is a time-line created from reading pages 167 - 170 from the â€œHistory of Shelby County Kentuckyâ€ by George L. Willis, Sr. in 1929. More information can be found about Moses Hall and his family in the referenced book.
My interest is the Treasury Warrant issued to Moses and Edward Hall. My great, great, great grandfather was Edward Hall who came to Kentucky in the Spring of 1779. From my research Edward Hallâ€™s father was probably William Hall (based on land claims). I can not tie my Edward Hall to Moses Hall and perhaps Moses Hall had a son named Edward?
A deceased relative of mine who did a lot of research on Edward Hall left me the following information, but not the reference source:
â€œEdward Hall, William Hall, and Jesse Oldham went with Boone to establish a station at Shelbyville.â€
It is known that Squire Boone, brother of Daniel Boone, established the Painted Stone Station in 1779. Edward Hall and his brother William Hall (killed by Indians during the Revolutionary War), and Jesse Oldham were at Ft. Boonesbourgh in the Spring of 1779.
