Polly, my husband and I are truck drivers and we do get around to different areas. We have been to Hall county. You can find him in the 1900 censes with his mother Mary, and a brother Fletcher. I also have and obit from the St. Paul Neb. which they took from the Salt Lake newspaper. Hall county is Grand Island. Mary and his father (Thomas) were diviorced. I think, I do not have positive proof, Thomas was the son of Alfred which is the son of John from clark county, Indiana. If you would like copies of what I have please send me your address or call me. I have more info.
