I am seeking information on Durham Hall who resided in Orange Co., NC in 1840 and 1850. I have the following information on him:
Durham Hall b. 29 Oct 1786 in Wake Co., North Carolinamarried Nancy Brown on 02 Dec 1808 in Wake Co., North Carolina.
Their Children as noted on the 1850 census for Orange Co., NC: (I am sure there were others) Cellia E., age 23 Mark A., age 19
The family was living next to Archibald Atkins in 1840 and in 1850 Linsey Atkins, his wife. Linsey Atkins was born Linsey Hall abt. 1810 in Wake Co. She and Archibald are from whom I descend. I believe that Durham was her father as I have other evidence that she had a brother Mark. It seems likely that since they were living next to each other that he was her father.
Also noted on the same census page is a William Hall, age 65 who I believe to be his brother. William Hall was living with a Brazilla age 60, Frances age 40, John age 18, and Andrew age 15. I have found information indicating that Durham had a brother William. Wheather or not this one is the one I do not know for sure.
Durham Hall was the son of Robert HALL and Mary ROSS who married 25 May 1780 in Wake Co., North Carolina.
I would like to get more information on Durham Hall and his descendants. Also, who was Robert's father? Was this family from VA? Please contact me if you descend from these people. I will share what I have on Linsey and Archibald.
