Elisha L. Hall - VA, TN, MS, LA
Posted by: Ronald C. Hall (ID *****2191) Date: February 04, 2010 at 15:54:23
  of 94

From Obituaries of Early Tennessee Newspapers: Mr. Elisha L. Hall formerly of Franklin, TN. died near Martinsville, LA - printed Nov. 8, 1830 in National Banner and Nashville Whig

I have found a mention (no date) of a Dr. Elisha Logan Hall who married Fanny Eastin in St. Martin's Parish, LA.

From a transcript of Bedford County, TN Deed Records Vol. X-BB, 1 Dec 1831, property (in LA) was distributed on behalf of Elisha S. Hall to the children of William Hall of Yazoo, MS. (son of John of Bedford, VA) An Elisha S. Hall does appear on an 1825 tax list in Yazoo, MS. Interestingly, Wm. was still alive at the time. He died in 1838. I have not seen this original record yet, but a handwritten "S" or "L" could be confused for one another.

Does anyone have information on this family or ideas regarding where to look next? -- Thanks
