Any help on this would be GREATLY appreciated. I've been searcing for this fellow for over 20 years now...

I am searching for a Christopher Hall "from NY". He married (wife possibly Olive) and his children were born in NY ca 1790-1800. This family, after 1810, appears to have left NY and went to Luzerne County, PA. Christopher is deceased by 1820 census. To date his heirs have been identified as: Calvin, Olive, Lucy, Sarah/Sally, all found in deeds as Heirs of Christopher Hall of NY. It is possible that he died in NY, and never actually made it to Luzerne County, PA with his family. It does appear that he died between 1814- 1820. (1820 census for Luzerne County does show son Calvin, and residing in the same location is an Olive who is of an age to have been their mother)

This name does not seem to be too common a name for the state and time frame. One close option I found is for a Christopher Hall that was found residing in Otsego, Otsego, NY on the 1800 census.
age counts: 020010-110100

He may be there in 1810 as well, but info shown on that census only uses intials for given names.

I would be happy to get any info for any Christopher Hall in NY during this time frame. Worse case it would allow me to determine who may or may not be mine...
