Trying to find information on my grandfather.

Willie Hall
birth: 1908
death: 1963 (St. Louis)
Married: Pearline Lott (1930)

Also looking for information on a Lily Cunningham.

In the 1930 census there is a listing for Pearline Hall & William Hall. The birth dates match what I have. I am guessing the census people decided to write William instead of Willie. In the 1930 census it lists a niece living with them by the name of Lily Cunningham. I am hoping that Lily Cunningham will be a link to my grandfather because know one on my grandmother's side married anyone with the name Cunningham.

Any information will be helpful.

1930 is the last available searchable census at this time.

1940 census has been released but it will take several months before the transcription is completed.

Thanks for the leads, but I know that, Pearline Hall (nee Lott), father's name was Willis Sherman Lott. It is on her marriage certificate to Willie and it can be verified by her sister's obituary (Ethel Hicks nee Lott).

I am really trying to find more information about Willie Hall. We don't know much about his family.

1920 New Madrid Co. census:

Noah Hall, head, 43 Illinois
Jennie Hall, sister, 46 Illinois
Willie Hall, nephew, 11 Missouri [looks like name G----t entered and then crossed out]
Oliver Hall, brother, 33 Illinois

The inference as listed is that Willie was Jennie's son.


1910 New Madrid Co. census:
Edward D Hall 72 IL NC NC [should be Elisha D]
Anna Hall 65 TN NC NC
Noah Hall 30 IL IL TN
Jennie Hall 25 IL IL TN
Oliver Hall 22 IL IL TN

Willie is not shown 1910. There's a William W. Hall 10/12, son of Otto & Mary Hall 30, but Otto was born Indiana and Mary in Mo.


1900 Scott Co. Mo:
Elisha D. Hall, Jan 1836 IL, married 37 yrs
Annie Hall, Feb 1846 TN, 13 children, 10 living
Noah W. Hall, Apr 1874 IL
Oliver Hall, Aug 1881 IL
Pearl Grant, Oct 1887 IL, niece


1880 Gallatin Co., Illinois
Elisha D. Hall 42 IL
Hannah Hall 31 TN
James Hall 17 IL
Mary J. Hall 13 IL [Jennie?]
Elizabeth Hall 12 IL
Virginia Hall 11 IL
Carrie Hall 10 IL
Noah Hall 9 IL
Julius Hall 4 IL
Silas Hall 2 IL
Elisha Hall 3/12 IL
Charls Harris 11 nephew


James and Silas are also in 1910 New Madrid census, but have no son Willie.

Julius is in Mississippi Co. 1910 and also has no son Willie.


I think this is Jennie:

Informant J. H. Hall on Jennie's certificate was her brother Julius:

And their father Elisha D:

After looking at 1920 census I noticed that a name was scratched out in front of Willie (G---t). I remember a family story that my grandfather's real last name was "Grant". After looking at the 1900 census for Elisha D. Hall it shows a Pearl Grant listed as niece. I wonder if there is a connection.

Any information would be helpful.
