Re: Researcher help needed Carroll Co. VA

Rose Mary,

I am aware of the Thomas P. Hall/Malinda Henley marriage, but he is not the same Thomas Hall as my ancestor. As I understand it, Thomas P. died in Kanawa County, WV.

Thomas Hall, Sr. who married Nancy Semones had a son, Thomas, Jr. born abt 1810, who married Tabitha Webb in Grayson 28OCT1833. He died in Carroll in 1881 according to church records.

I have never been able to connect my Thomas Hall, Sr. to any of the Hall family in Franklin, Pittsylvania or Halifax. A good number of them moved into NC as well. My Thomas moved to Carroll from Franklin County about 1813 and died in Grayson in 1827.

It was due to this dead end that I began researching all families in Carroll County. Now that my database is about 134,000 people, it's sort of like a crossword puzzle now.

As I understand it, James B. Henley and Elizabeth Dodd were the parents of Frances Henley who married Oliver Dishon. My knowledge of the Henleys is not very deep.

best regards,
Ron Hall
