Biography

Viola Amelia Hall was born near Almena, Kansas on April 2, 1888.(a) She was the daughter of Wilson Hall and Lizzie Graner, and grew up with the family, first in neighboring Phillips County and then in Almena.[1][2][3]

On March 25, 1908, Viola married A. C. Thompson in Almena.[4] The couple raised their three children on a farm outside of town.[5][6][7][8][9] Around 1935, the family moved to Bogue, Kansas, about 40 miles south of Almena.(b)[10]

Viola died on May 21, 1965 (age 77) at Graham County Hospital in Hill City, Kansas.[11] She was buried the following Monday in Wildhorse Township Cemetery, just south of Bogue.[12]

Research Notes

  1. Viola's middle name and precise date and place of birth aren't mentioned in any published sources, only in a few family possessions. This information may be recorded in her marriage license or death certificate.
  2. The family may also have lived in Texas for a short time. Her husband A. C.'s and son Rex's Social Security Numbers were issued in Texas sometime before 1951, and a grandson was born in Houston in 1937.
