Biography

THOMAS HALL By Rayburn C Hall:

1. THOMAS1 HALL was born Abt 1780 in Rowan Co., NC, and died Abt 1830 in Rhea or Meigs Co, TN. He married NANCY WOODS November 6, 1801 in Rowan County, North Carolina, Jacob Walser, bondsman; Jno Brem. wit.3, daughter of WILLIAM WOODS and REBECCA. She was born Abt 1780 in North Carolina4, and died Aft. 1850 in Jackson County, AL.


Documents to prove that the Thomas Hall that married Nancy Woods in Rowan County North Carolina on November 6, 1801 is the father of the Hall Clan on this Web Page has not been found yet. But after many years of research by many members of this particular Hall Clan and the gathering of circumstantial evidence and reliable family oral history the following Thomas Hall has been accepted by many to be our forefather. This doesn't’ mean that the search for proof has ended by no means. The search will continue and any information from any researcher for or against the theory will be greatly appreciated. Thomas Hall was born in North Carolina about 1780, probably in Iredell or Rowan County. He married Nancy Woods in Rowan County North Carolina on November 6, 1801. [1]Thomas' parents are unknown at this time. Some researchers believe that he was a brother to the James Hall that settled in Jackson County Alabama about 1820.

It is believed that Thomas moved his family to Rhea County Tennessee about 1820. He purchased land that is in Meigs County Tennessee today. The land was a portion of the Hiwassee District in the Armstrong Ferry and Garrison Bluff Area. He was a preacher and was one of the delegates for the Good Hope Baptist church in Big Spring, Tennessee in 1834. Records indicate that he performed many marriage ceremonies in Rhea County Tennessee. Family history relates that he was a circuit-riding preacher. It is believed by some that Thomas died in Meigs County about 1834 or very soon afterward.

Known children of Thomas Hall and Nancy Woods through oral history are James, William, Elijah M. Calvin, Hosea, Manoah, and Joseph. Elijah married Mary Phillips in 1834 and Joseph married Catherine Matlock in Rhea County Tennessee in 1821. This author believes that the James Hall that married Mary Rockhart in 1826 and the William Hall that married Isabella Moore in 1821 in Rhea County may be sons of Thomas and Nancy Hall. Son Hosea married Mary Pace and Manoah married Catherine Pace in Jackson County Alabama.
