That is my Rachel who married James H. Hall, Halifax Co., Va., 1821 (?) doing all this from memory. James was the son of John Robins Hall and Sally Hurt, the daughter of a well known Baptist minister: Philemon Hurt, Halifax Co. and Rev. war soldier. John Robins Hall was the son of Benjamin Hall who moved to Halifax Co., Va. circa 1760. He was originally from Gloucester Co., Va. When John Bruce Jr. died, John Robins Hall was appointed guardian to his unmarried girl children. Rachel was one of those girls and she later married James H. Hall, the son of her guardian. this Hall family moved to Carroll and Weakley Counties, Tennessee, circa 1835. James H. Hall became a Baptist minister, following in the footsteps of his grandfather" Philemon Hurt". the Hurt family moved with the Halls. this is a brief history of one of my families.
