Parents of William Manning Hall?

+2 votes
80 views
Does anyone know who the parents of William Manning Hall were? He was born in 1872 in Illinois and died in 1928 in Pleasant Hill, Louisiana. He was married to Mabel Greenwood (1885-1959) and had several children with her, one of whom was my great grandmother. I've never known much about him other than his name. His nickname was Sully, though, which I find odd considering that's usually a nickname for "Sullivan" which was not his last or middle name.

                  Wow! I think you found him! Oh my gosh, YOU FOUND HIM! How did you do that?! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! That's his birth date and everything!!! There's no way that couldn't be him! So is this Zalmon Hall the same Z M Hall then?
                  Zalmon good to go. Middle initial of M may be transcription error.
                  Oh, okay! I see, thank you so so much! This has been a huge help! I've been looking for William's parents for three years now and have had no luck. I can't believe you found it, this is great!!
                  Eddie, I have another question about the birth record you found - I noticed it doesn't list a name on it. Is that only because you have to be an Ancestry member or is it just not listed on the record itself?

                  Yes, that's the same man right there. Although sadly, it doesn't his parents name on the grave listing or in his obit...
