Our Family's Journey Through Time
Our closest ancestor on the Hall Family begins with Aaron Syre Hall who was born near Portsmouth, Ohio on Auguest 17, 1819. He married Lydia Amanda Worley on April 25, 1852 in Scioto, Nile, Ohio. Lydia married Moses only 3 weeks after her 17th birthday. They had 10 children. Moses brought his Kentucky bride from Portsmouth, Ohio to Quincy, Adams, Illinois.

The father of Moses Syre Hall is Aaron Bigelow Hall
The father of Aaron Bigelow Hall is Aaron Hall born 18 September 1766 in Virginia and died 7 July 1851 in Putnam, Indiana. Aaron was living in Bourbon, Kentucky in his early years. This is where Daniel Boone, an early explorer, settler and founder of Kentucky was living. He probably knew and worked with Daniel Boone helping the settlers in the area.
While living in Bourbon he married Elizabeth Bell on 20 December 1792. Her parents were William and Mary Shawhan Hall. Their first child, Aaron Bigelow Hall, was born in March 1792 prior to their marriage. Aaron Bigelow Hall was named in the July 1806 probate of his grandfather Moses S. Hall while still living with his family in Bourbon, Kentucky. Soon after on 13 September 1793 in Mt Sterling, Montgomery, Kentucky a daughter, Mary Ann, is born. She later marries John Wesley Hensley and has a large family. After the death of her husband in 1835 she marries Jesse Jones.
The marriage quickly ends for Aaron and Elizabeth. There may have been four children born to them. Definitly Aaron Begelow was their son and most likely Mary Ann was their daughter. Aaron remarries Letitia Miller. Because a marriage record has not been found for Aaron and Letitia, it is not known if the last two children belong to Latitia or Elizabeth. Several Hall family researchers differ on this but do not include any resourses to document their view. The children in question are William R Hall born 1795 in Sterling and Anna Hall born in 1796 in Virginia which at that time was an extension of Kentucky. The census of 1820 shows Aaron living in Sterling, Montgomery, Kentucky and in 1830 living in Jefferson, Indiana.
In 1850 Aaron and Letitia are living with his daughter, Mary Ann, and her husband, Jesse Jones, in Putnam, Monroe, Indiana. Letitia dies in 1850 and Aaron dies in 1851 in Putnam Indiana.
Elizabeth remarries on 18 May 1898 to Enoch Lochhart and has three children.
