Research Progress

1850 United States Federal Census Record of Jackson County, Alabama, Household of Henry HALL[1]

Household in 1850:

RESEARCH NOTES: Individual was indexed as Henry HALL, but on image it looks more like Hosey HALL
Mary HALL (Age: 30 Years, Born in Virginia)

1866 Alabama State Census Record of Jackson County, Alabama

FamilySearch only has a database for this census record, Ancestry.com has images of the census record.
Note: There is a record for a Hosy HALL[3], but this is not the right household as he only had 2 white male children listed as being under 10 years old and no white female children listed in his household. The only other individuals in the household were the white male over 30, who presumably was Hosey HALL, and the white female over 30 who was presumably his wife. In 1866, Hosea HALL would have had at least four to six children living in his household according to the list of children in the household in 1860 and depending on when they married and / or moved out of the parent's household. According to the list of children in 1860, the children of the correct Hosea HALL in 1866 probably would have been:
  1. Nancy HALL (Approximate Age: 20 Years)
  2. Lucinda HALL (Approximate Age: 17 Years)
  3. Wm HALL (Approximate Age: 14 Years)
  4. Thomas C. HALL (Approximate Age: 12 Years)
  5. James HALL (Approximate Age: 9 Years)
  6. John HALL (Approximate Age: 7 Years)
I believe that in the 1866 Census record of Township no. 3, range 5 east in Jackson County, Alabama, Hosea HALL was listed as H. F. HALL[4], [5]
Household of H. F. HALL in 1866:
2 White Males Aged Under 10 Years
2 White Males Aged 10 to 20 Years
1 White Male Aged Over 20 Years
Total of Males: 5 White Males
2 White Females Aged 10 to 20 Years
Total of Females: 2 White Females
Total number in Household: 7 Individuals
RESEARCHER's NOTE: If this is the correct Household, then the wife of Hosea HALL died between 1860 and 1866 as she was not reported in the household.
