Lydia Dotson m Eli Hall in Scott Co., Va about 1826. In the middle 1850's, Wise Co., Va, Eli Hall petitioned the court to set aside his previous marriage. He stated his wife had been gone for 7 yrs. I think he m(2) Mary Scarberry. Check 1850 Census for Russell Co., Va. As I recall, he is in that Census or the one for Scott Co., Va.
