Searching for more information on William Sherman Hall who married Laura M. Smith, daughter of William Alexander Smith. This William S. Hall owned the Bludwine Bottling Company in Charleston, SC in the 1910s and 1920s.
Thanks to researcher David Hall, I think William S. Hall's father was Jeremiah (or Jere) Hall b.c. 1838 who married Annie Boatwright (not sure who she is the daughter of).
Jeremiah Hall is listed in the 1850 Census in Lexington County, SC and his father is listed as William Hall (b.c. 1817) and wife Lorana or Luerina Unknown (might be Gantt, or Gauntt)but she might be his second wife as she is too young to be Jeremiah's mother.Other children listed in this family in the 1850 Census are: Hugh M Hall, Wayne Hall, Susannah Hall, Wilks Hall, Isaiah Hall, Emma Hall, and Dinah Hall.
Jeremiah is also listed in the 1860 Census in Lexington County, SC living with Drayton Gantt a few doors down from his father.William and Luerania Hall have the following children living with them in the 1860 Census: Wayne Hall, Wilks Hall, Isaiah Hall, Emma Hall, Jane Hall, Arther Hall, Drayton Hall, and Leurania Hall.
I cannot figure out how these Halls are related to the Halls of Lexington County.Does anyone have any idea who these Halls are and if they are related to the Halls in the Lexington County area?
Any information would be helpful and I am willing to share information that I have with others interested.
