I am trying to trace Thomas and Nancy Ann HALL in Nelson Co, KY c1800.

Nancy Ann BARTLETT was born about 1769, probably in Fauquier Co, VA. She was one of 10 surviving children of Thomas BARTLETT c1730-1806 and Anne, who were raised in Richmond Co, VA; and lived in Fauquier Co, VA 1768-1785, and then Thomas BARTLETT moved his family to Harrison Co, VA. In a 1798 Deed in Harrison Co, VA, Thomas BARTLETT gave a "Negro slave woman named Abigail to his daughter Anne HALL of Nelson Co, KY, then to her daughter Elizabeth HALL". In 1816 Harrison Co, VA, "Thomas HALL and Nancy, his wife" were named in a suit about the Thomas BARTLETT estate.

I have not been able to find any record of Thomas HALL in Fauquier Co, VA or in Harrison Co, VA, so it is unclear whether Thomas HALL was from Fauquier Co, VA and he and Nancy Anne BARTLETT married there or if Thomas HALL was already in Harrison Co, VA and they married soon after Thomas BARTLETT and his family arrived there in 1785.

In any case I'm hoping someone has any scrap of information about Thomas and/or Anne HALL, or their daughter, Elizabeth HALL, in Nelson Co, KY. Any record, or even a family story, would be appreciated.

TIA, Jim Bartlett
