I have a litle bit of info for you. First, John A. Hall had 5 children with Matilda, according to my records. 1. James Hall 2. Robert Henderdon Hall and twin 3.Catherine Hall ( b. Mar. 31,1835) 4. Thomas Hall, and 5. Jehu "Hugh" Hall.
John married Sarah Jones in Scott Co, VA. )ct. 15, 1839. They had a daughter Elizabeth. I was under the impression that Thomas and James were Matilda's children, but no proof. So you are probably right. I have the spouses of these children. I will list here.
Robert H. Hall m. Sarah Elizabeth "BETT" Wilson
Catherine Hall m. _____Jones
Thomas Hall m. Martha J. Leach
High m. Eliza Nunn
Elizabeth Hall m. John Kivett
do not have spouse for James.
Robert was in the Union Army. He was gone for over 2 years and came back to his home where his wife had killed and fed all the livestock and chickens to her family and burned most of the out buildings for fuel. His brothers Thomas and Hugh joined the Confederacy. Both were killed and are buried in the Veterans Cemetery in Knoxville, TN.
According to the records , John A's father was from England and his mother a Cherokee Indian. Robert Henderson Hall is my GG grandfather. I have photo of him. (real cute) NOT. You can write me direct at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I got part of this info from Bernice Maddox who is also a descendant of John A. Thanks for your reply, Linda
