Biography

This profile is part of the Hall Name Study.
Armajor Kent Hall was born in 1835 in Hines County, Mississippi and, when he enlisted in the Army of the Confederate States of America at age 27 (on April 19, 1862), he was described as a farmer, 5'10" in height, and having hazel eyes, dark hair, and dark complexion. He enlisted for "three years or the War" and received $50 bounty.[1]
Armajor married Louisa Eppinette in 1863 (a 1900 family photograph shows them and their 11 children in 1900).[2]
He served as a private in Company B, 30th Louisiana Infantry, from April 19, 1862, to June 9, 1865. He enlisted in Colombia, Louisiana, and appears on Federal Rolls as a prisoner of War, captured and paroled at Vicksburg, Mississippi, July 4, 1863. He is later reported in camp of exchange, March 29, 1864, as prisoner of War and paroled at Monroe, Louisiana, June 9, 1865.[3][4]
A family story of his homecoming (not sure whether 1863 or 1865) is that Louisa knew he was coming home before she could see a traveller by the way the dogs were barking (he was walking home from either Vicksburg or Monroe).[5]
After Louisa died in 1905, Armajor married Lizzie Westcott and had two more children (Ruth and Annie) before he died in 1919.

Burial

Armajor Kent Hall is buried in the Oak Ridge Church of Christ Cemetery.[6]

Research Notes

The category 30th Louisiana Infantry was replaced with the category for 31st Regiment, Louisiana Infantry. This may explain the difference in primary sources of what unit he served in (30th or 31st), but no sources were given for the change so it's still a bit murky to me. ~ Noland-165 16:20, 27 November 2017 (EST)
