Ginie ,

You should not have trouble with my email. I have never changed it. Same as many years ago.
I will get out my Comanche Co., books and see what I can find. Did the Aunt Alva live in Comanche Co., Also?

I found Thomas W. Hall and wife Gurtrud in the 1920 census for Comanche Co., TX. He was 52 born AL and she was 38 born TX. Do you know Alva and Trudy maiden name?

The Hall's I am researching is not my family. My brother Jerry Grisham and I are in the process of doing a book on the small Rock Bluff Bapitst Church members and people buried in the Rock bluff Cemetery from 1878 through 1920. Rock Bluff Baptist Church is located in the far Northeast of Comanche Co., TX. A few miles from Gorman, Eastland Co., TX. Our Great Grandfather William Julius Skaggs and his wife Francis Smith Skaggs were Charter members of this church and he was also a Baptist Minister. Our Grandfather Willie and his brother Frank were also Baptist Ministers.

The Hall family that were members was Wyatt Alber Hall and his wife Sarah Judith Crawley Hall. Wyatt parents were James Hall and Jerusha Mullican. James and Jerusha had 3 children, Roland born April 26, 1845 in Simpson Co., MS, Celeste born August 11, 1847 in MS and Wyatt Albert Hall born May 29, 1850 in Simpson Co., MS. James Hall died between 1850-1853 and Jerusha married 2nd. Joseph N. Ragland and he died between 1863-1870 and she married Christopher Stratton Crawley probable about 1870. Christopher is buried in the small Rock Bluff Cemetery and he was the father of Sarah Judith Ctawley Hall.

I will get back to you after I research the Comanche Co., books. I still go back home to Deleon, Comanche Co., TX a few times a year so maybe I can help you. Do you know where Thomas Hall is buried. Maybe he was a cousin to Wyatt Albert Hall. Wanda Sparkman
