My GG Grandfather was Jason Thomas Hall, b. 1820 at SC and died in 1877 at Choctaw County, MS. He was a blacksmith by trade. He only appears in one record that has been discovered so far, the 1870 US Census. Family legends are that he lived at Fayette, GA for several years and then lived in Fayette County, AL before moving to Choctaw County, MS. He was the correct age for Confederate service, though no record has been found. He died of pneumonia in 1877 upon his return from the area of the MS River Delta which had suffered a flood in that same year and is buried in the Greensboro cemetery 1.5 miles from my present home, though the grave marker (along with many others) was destroyed by a timber company in the 1970's.
Several of my Hall relatives and I have submitted DNA samples for testing and we all match the descendants of Drury Hall, Francis Marion Hall, and Hosea Hall - all believed relatives or descendants of this Thomas Hall.
