Thank you, Stanley.Your reply is very helpful and much appreciated.There are so many William Halls.Do you have any further info on William the son of William and Esther.Did Wm2 marry? a Susan Mathers?or someone else? Is there any record of his children? in particular a daughter named Cynthia, whose husband, Jacob Uttinger, is named as executor of William's will in 1831?Could this same William who died in 1831 in Bourbon County be the son of William and Esther? or do I need to keep searching?
