"JOSEPH L. HALL, of the firm of HALL, BARNS & CO., was born in Ohio, December 31, 1844, and is the son of WILLIAM and ELIZABETH (QUIMBY) HALL, natives of New York State. The family came to this county in 1850, locating on a farm in Liberty Township, where the father died. Two years later the mother married WILLIAM CONWELL, and removed to LaPorte County, and thence to Southwestern Illinois, where they passed the remainder of their lives. At the age of thirteen, JOSEPH L. HALL was compelled to take care of himself, and when seventeen, enlisted in Company D, Twelfth Indiana Volunteer Infantry. He was mustered into service at Indianapolis, in June 1862, and his first fight was at Richmond, Kentucky, where he was taken prisoner, but soon after received a parole, and rejoined his company at Indianapolis. His next engagement was at Vicksburg; then followed Jackson, Missionary Ridge, Resaca, Dallas, New Hope, Kenesaw Mountain, Nickajack Creek, Atlanta, Jonesboro, Savannah, Columbus and Raleigh. He received his discharge in June, 1865, when he returned to this county and engaged in farming on rented land. He was married, October 9, 1866, to MISS NANCY PRICE, a native of White County, and born in October, 1843. To this union were born six children, two now living - JOHN T. and AARON J. In the fall of 1880, MR. HALL moved to Yeoman, Carroll County, and engaged in merchandising ten months; then moved his stock to Idaville, where he did business on his account until September, 1882, when he sold two-thirds of his interest, and formed his present copartnership. MR. HALL is a member of the I.O.O.F., and is a Democrat."
