2 An interview with James Oscar Hall: "My father's name was Edgar James hall. The Hall name is an adopted name. His real father was John Hawkins from London, england. John Hawkins came to the United States to a World's Fair. It has geen said it was a World's Fair in chicago, Illinois. I don't know the date but he was a representative of the country of England as an artist. He was also known to be a portrait artist and made cartoons. He also was a concert violinist. we have a sketch book of his that shows he went to the Plymouth School of "Art in Plymouth, England around 1879. This book is in the possessiion of Vicki Holmes. It was during this time that he met my grandmother and they got married. After they were married my grandfather sent for his mother in London and had her come to the United States and live with them. My grandfather only lived a few years of their marriage. My fahter barely remembered his father. John Hawkins died of a tumor of the brain. After his death my grandmother remarried a man by the name of James Truett hall whom I as named after. I don't know when the adoption took place but my father was older in his early teens. It was said to be for business reason."
"John hawkins had a brother who emigrated to Australia about the same time John Hawkins came to the United States. He started out as a sheep herder who, as the years went by became one of the biggest sheep owners in the land of Australia. He died in Australia but I don't know when. He was suppose to have left all of his holdings to my grandmother, Lilly May and my father, Edgar James but the government had a hard time find them. When they finally found my grandmother, the state limitations had gone by or something to that effect. The state took over his property so they lost out on that.



Several more years go by and John is born in January 30,1861. John is only 2 months old in the 1861 census. They are living at 63 Tavistock Street in Stoke Dameral.

John attends the Plymouth School of Art in 1879. The school has existed in Plymouth since 1851 or earlier. Many of the records were lost in the fires that damaged the city during the blitzes of the Second World War. John exhibited his artwork at the Royal Academy of Exhibitors in London. He had two paintings exhibited there. One painting on display was "Portrait of a Lady." The Royal Academy has exhibitions twice a year when "artists" of varying degrees of ability exhibit their work for sale. 1879 predates the issue of the first illustrated catalogues by ten years. Beyond this the Academy has no additional information about John Hawkins. He was living at 5, Walpole Street, Chelsea.In 1881 John is back home and is the only child at home. There is no mention of occupation for James or John. They are living at 50 Clowance St.

John decides to come to the United States. The story passed down in the family is that John came to the United States to represent England in the Worlds Fair but no proof of this has been found. He appears in St Louis, Missouri before April 1, 1881 living at 1825 Olive. The City Directory lists his occupation as artist boards. In 1882 John is living at the same address and his occupation is engraver. In 1883 his occupation is listed as artist boards.

In 1884 John sends for his parents in England to join him in St. Louis. James is now 69 and Jane is 63. James and Jane live at 2025 Obear Ave while John is living on south side of Breman Ave near the river. (This is probably the same address as his parents.) In 1885 John is listed as an artist living at 4331 N 20t Ave. His mother is living with him and in the directory she is listed as widow of James. James and his mother continue to live together during 1886 and 1887 at the same residence. John has been working in litho and as a draughtsman. In 1888 they moved to 4329 N 20th residence and John is listed as an artist. John and his mother move to 2000 John Ave.

John has met Lillie M. Coghill who has been living at 2005 Obear Ave. This is not far from the location John's parents lived when they first came to St. Louis. John and Lillie are married 12 February 1889 by R. M. Higgins, Pastor of Hyde Park Congregational Church. Lillie is 20 years old and her father, James C. Coghill's, signature is on her marriage application. Her mother has passed away before this. John is 28 years old and living at 2000 John Ave.. Later in the year, on 6 Nov 1889 a son, Edgar James Hawkins, is born. Later in 1889 they move to 2007 Obear Ave, which is close to Lillie’s parents home of 2005 Obear Ave. John’s occupation, is traveler. In the year 2000, the 2000 John Ave residence was found to be torn down but the 2025 Obear location still exists where John and his parents lived.
In 1890 John is listed in the city directory as an artist. In 1891 John and his family including his mother move to 4131 N Grand but in 1892 they move to 3205A Harper. John dies in August and is buried 7 August 1892 in the Coghill family plot at Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis.

4 From Evergreen Cemeteries and Mansoleum, 4301 Alameda Ave, El Paso, Texas 79905.
In regards to your letter concerning your great grandfather and his son, our records show the following information: James T. Hall born in Ill., died of cancer of the lung at the age of 58, on Sept 3, 1925, lastest residence, Venton, Texas. He is buried in our cemetary in section P, Lot 87, grave #5. Funeral arrangements were made by Mrs. Hall.

It is said that James Truett Hall adopted Edgar James Hawkins. The adoption took place when Edgar James was an adult for business reason.
Death Certificate lists cause of death if Lung Cancer.
James Truett Hall was buried in Evergreen Cememtry, El Paso, El Paso, Texas.

On 18 January 1899 Lillie M. Hawkins is married to James T. Hall of Nacosari, Mexico in St. Louis by Rev. Daniel M. Fisk, D.D., pastor of Compton Hill Congregational Church. A son James Everett Hall was born on August 30, 1901 in Quincy, Illinois. Soon afterwards Lillie and James T. came out west. On February 28, 1902 their son, Everett, died of mengitis. Their residence was Nacasario, Mexico but Everett was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, El Paso, Texas.

James T. started working in the mines. He eventually became a general manager for a big copper company. He lived in Mexico for a time. They also lived in Tyron, New Mexico. James T was given a tip by one of the "big shots" of the Phelps Dodge Corporation who may have been Jimmy Douglas. Jimmy Douglas told him to buy mining stock. James T. had $5,000.00 and with the persuasion of Lillie and Edgar he invested the entire money in the stock. Lillie was very persuasive and got her way most of the time. This stock went way up and when James T. cashed it in, he got $100,000 for it so the story goes.

James T. always liked El Paso, Texas and bought three 320-acre farms in the Rio Grande Valley between Las Cruz, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. One of the farms was in Vinton, Texas. He also bought another place across the highway from the new home and started a dairy. After he retired, while he was building his home in Vinton, Texas he climbed to the roof to give the Mexican helpers instructions and accidentally fell off. He eventually died 1 September 1925 from lung cancer, which the family feels started from the fall. His death certificate stated he was a rancher, born in Quincy, Illinois. The names of his parents are Mose Hall and Mary Truett. Cause of death was from lung cancer but the only test given was an x-ray. Edgar Hall, his adopted son living in Ajo, Arizona, gave information on the certificate. He was buried in El Paso, Texas.

Jane continued to live there until she dies on 8 February 1902. She is 82 and 10 months old. She dies of Chronic Endocarditis.

8 John hawkins had a brother who emigrated to Australia about the same time John Hawkins came to the United States. He started out as a sheep herder who, as the years went by became one of the biggest sheep owners in the land of Australia. He died in Australia but I don't know when. He was suppose to have left all of his holdings to my grandmother, Lilly Mae and my father Edgar James but the government had a hard time find them. When they finally found my grandmother, the state limitations had gone by or something like that. The state took over his propeerty so they lost out on that. (Family story given to James O. Hall)

On the 1871 British Census, Thomas is 20 years old and his occupation is listed as Ship Carpenter.
He does not show on the 1881 Census.

Around 1878, Thomas goes to New South Wales, Australia on the ship "Peterborough" and arrives in Sydney" The family story tell of Thomas becoming a sheep herder who over the years became one of the biggest sheep owners in the land of Australia. He was suppose to have left all of his holdings to the wife of his brother John but the government had a hard time finding them. When they did the state limitations had gone by and the state took over all his property. This theory has not been proven. Thomas became a saddler for his occupation. Thomas dies 9 October 1881. His cause of death is consumption (tuberculosis) having had it for the last 12 months. He is 31 years old. He died and was buried in Armidale Old Med Cemetery. His death certificate states he was married at 23 years old in Somersetshire, England but no information as to whom. It also states he had been in Australia for four years.
on the 1872 Grevilles NSW Directory Thomas J. is listed as a Government Appraiser, Bathurst, NSW.

12 Seal Lilly to both husbands.

There is no mention of Lillie in the City Directory in 1893 which one would assume she is living with a family member and not head of a household. In 1894 Lillie is working as a Steno at the Candy Brothers Store and living at 4435 W. Bell Place. She continues to live there in 1895-96 but has changed her job as a steno at the Ober Nester Glass Co. In 1897 Lillie is no longer mentioned in the City Directory.
