excerpt from A Slice of History: A Story of a Hall Family of America Compiled by Roderick A. Hall January, 2001

"In 1670 three of his sons, John, Samuel and Thomas, joined the company that settled Wallingford, CT, and the father, John, went along also. His home lot in the new town was on the SE corner of Main and Center streets, opposite the site of the present Congregational church.. To even be accepted to reside in the town meant you had to be a planter and come with a recommendation! The town wanted to 'live in love and fear and enjoy the presence of the God of love and peace amongst us'. (This was done before freedoms were granted after the Revolutionary War). John Hall, Sen, was one who signed this agreement. John Hall Sr,. and Jr. both helped lay the foundation of a church there. In 1675 John Sr. was elected deacon of the church and selectman of the year before his death." [1]

John was born in 1605. John Hall ... He passed away in 1676.
