I am trying to discover who the parents were of Leander Frank Hall? He married Nora Belle Prettyman and had 5 children. At the age of 2 he and his 2 sisters were living with the family of Susan Smiley and her grown children. Unfortunately the census records do not indicate the relationship in these decades. Was Martha Smiley the mother of the 3 Hall children that were listed in the Oak Grove, Benton, Indiana 1850 and 1860 census records? The Hall children names were Susan b. 1852, Rachel b. 1854 and Leander b. 1858. Also who was the children's father?
If anyone knows the answer to these questions I would love to hear from you.
