6 out of 15 are surnamed Hall! Sisters and/or cousins, I presume!
And the sad thing is that the family will be gone soon as the last Hall is an elderly lady I met by chance in Motueka, Nelson, New Zealand.  Her great grandfather and mine were best friends.  Chance meeting of descendants from Ireland in a small country town in New Zealand. How's that for luck! And only because she saw a photo of my Father and asked where it was taken - Kawakawa, the same place her great grandfather had emigrated to. She had valuable info about my family and I had an original letter her great grandfather had written in 1866.
