Genealogy help requested!

  1. Col. [[Hall-33245|Abel Hall]] b. 1775 d. 30 Dec 1836, bur. at Union Cemetery,  Easton, CT
  2. Col. [[Hall-33244|Abel Hall]] b.1803 d. 22 Dec 1836, bur. @ Tashua Burial Ground, Trumbull, CT

These two cemeteries are only a few miles apart. Furthermore, there's this guy, also buried @ Tashua in Trumbull:

I came to this because of my ongoing cemetery photo project. I've got pictures of the gravestones of both Capt. Abel Hall (already connected) and Col. Abel Hall, both buried @ Tashua. I mention Abel buried at Easton because they're easy to confuse. I've got a will probated in early 1837, but which man does it go to? This is why I made a rejected match between the two Col. Halls. The birth years are far apart, but they died almost in unison and be confused in carelessness.

I haven't gotten very far with this yet. I've made profiles for all three, and one is connected. This is an open invitation for assistance in improving and connecting the other two, the ones who both died in December 1836. Much appreciated!!

The birth years are so separted, they are possibly relatives.

Yes indeed. They are about two generations apart. I'm just getting back to it this morning. We shall see.
