Pharoah Hall and his wife Mary were living in Warren County, Mississippi at the time of the 1850 Census (October 28), where his occupation was farmer. He was 68 and Mary was 67; both were shown as born in North Carolina.[1]

Researcher Milton Hall, in GenForum, provides Pharoah's migration information and asks for support of believed father and grandfather:

"Seeking to identify parents of Pharoah Hall, born NC 1782. Pharoah is documented in Sampson Co. NC in 1800, Middle Tennessee in 1810 - 1820, East Tennessee in 1830, and Warren County Mississippi in 1835 forward. Strongly suspect Pharoah Hall's father is William Hall, son of Armager Hall from Sampson County but have been unable to find any firm documentation to support this."[2][3][4]

One researcher shows that Pharoah was born in Sampson County, North Carolina:

"Seeking info on Pharoah Hall, born c 1782 in Sampson Co. N.C. Migrated through Tenn to Miss in 1830's. Suspect but cannot document a connection with Armager William Hall's in Sampson Co. in early 19th century."[5]

Another researcher has Pharoah's wife as Mary Sarah Johnston.[6] "My Trees" also has Mary Sarah Johnston (1783-1852), their marriage as 1803, and the following children:[7]

  • Evan Armager Hall (b 1805)
  • Henderson Hall (b 1810)
  • Roccelany Hall (b 1819)
  • Newton Jasper Hall (b 1820)
  • Grannison Lafayette Hall (b 1828)
  • John William Hall (b 1829)

Hi Liz, I see you have the name Armager in your Hall line. Since Armager/Armiger can be another term for Armourer I am wondering if you have considered whether the Armourer Hall line in Elsdon, Northumberland, England may be worth a look to try to kick down your brick wall. See Hall-28393 for the marriage between Anthoney Hall and Mary Armorer. May be a wild goose chase, but you never know before you try. Lynda
