Louis H Hall was born about 1840 in Alabama, likely in Sumter County as his father Elijah P. Hall and family appear on the census there in 1840. By 1850 the family has moved west into Marshall County, MS. Continuing along this same path west, by 1860 they have relocated to VanBuren in Crawford County, AR, where we find Louis and his brother John living with their mother Hannah. The 1850 and 1860 census' confirm the brothers' birthplace as AL, although 1870 lists SC, which is possibly an indicator of his parents birthplace rather than his own. By 1880 Louis is living in Alma, AR and again states he was born in AL, with a father born in GA and a mother in SC.
On 11 Oct 1861 Louis enlisted from Van Buren in the Confederate Army as a Private in Company C, 1st Battalion, Arkansas Cavalry. He fought at the Battle of Vicksburg in MS and was captured by Union forces on 04 Jul 1863. He was parolled on July 8th.
