My 5th cousin and DNA

24 January 2013

Today, I was honored to meet my 88 year old, 5th cousin 1x removed – Mr. Robert Dean Hall.

Linda and Robert Hall

Five years ago, my brother, Mike took a DNA test in an effort to help prove that our Hall line descends from George Hall, one of the original settlers of Taunton, MA in the 1600’s. The test instead indicated that we did NOT descend from George, nor did we descend from Edward Hall of Rehoboth – the only two Hall families known to be of Bristol County, MA during that time period. Five years later, our only close DNA match is to a Hanson family of Wisconsin.

So in December 2012, I set out to find another descendant of my earliest known ancestor: Brian Hall born 1727 in Raynham, MA (which was then Taunton); died 1778 in Norton, MA – but through a different son than my ancestor Brian [junior].

I located, Robert Dean Hall, a descendant through Brian’s son Silas and grandson Chandler. I wrote a letter around Christmastime asking (okay, begging) for his DNA. My husband laughed: “You really think this “cousin” is going to call you? He is going to think you are some type of crazy lady!”

A month ago, I got a call. Robert was intrigued. He wasn’t sure if he was ready to give up his DNA, but he wanted to know more of his Hall ancestors. I printed out everything I had – births, marriages, deaths, military records, censuses, etc. and sent it off. A week passed, I heard nothing. Two weeks passed, still no word. Then, this past Sunday, I got a call – he has decided to give his DNA – could I meet him for lunch in Taunton – soon – he is planning to head to Florida for the winter any day now.

Of course we picked the coldest day of the year. It was negative 13 in Jackson, NH when I left home (negative 27 with the wind chill!) – my car, an Acura, albeit reliable, hit 100,000 miles during the 4 hour ride to Taunton. .. I worried needlessly – I arrived at Benjamin’s with 30 minutes to spare. Robert arrived a few minutes later.

Robert was delightful. I always enjoy meeting cousins! We sat for four hours and talked about everything. I didn’t take notes, I wish I had. I didn’t want to offend him – in reality, I don’t think it would have phased him a bit.

After a bit of small talk, he took the DNA test. It will have one the following results:

(1) He will not match my brother, thus indicating that my line had a non-paternal event (NPE) – i.e. a grandmother slept with the milkman; he will instead match the George or Edward Hall family of Bristol County (thus allowing me to focus my research)
(2) He will match my brother, which proves that there was a third Hall family in Bristol County.
(3) He won’t match my brother or George or Edward….then who knows!!

Fingers crossed…not sure which result I am hoping for… #1 or #2 – even if I am not a Hall genetically, I want to solve the mystery.

We then settled in at a cozy window table and both ordered a cup of chowder, shrimp fritters and diet coke (he admitted to being a diet coke addict – one of my vices as well) .

Robert has had a fabulous and interesting life.

He was born during the winter of 1924 at 7:40PM in Brockton City Hospital, the only child born to Chandler Dean Hall and Isabel Luther Pratt, weighing in at 8 pounds. 3 ounces.

Robert served our country in WWII. He was drafted and first stationed in Sacramento, California (where he visited San Francisco whenever he was on leave) and then the South Pacific. He was discharged in Japan and travelled home via 30 (miserable) days by ship (I guess the “shocks” on the boat weren’t working. He married Elsie Twomey, a girl from high school because “marriage was the thing to do after the war”. Robert never made it to college, as was the plan – he went to work at his father, Chandler’s, car dealership – Hall Motors, Inc. in Brockton which he later inherited. It was a lucrative business. He had 3 boys, only one of whom married (yielding two grandchildren – a boy, now an electrician, and a girl who is a recent graduate and working as a physician’s assistant). Robert’s wife, Elsie (an Irish Catholic) passed away 40 years ago, at the age of 51, from cancer. By that time, Robert had sold the business and his house in Brockton and retired to Cape Cod. A few years later, on the Cape, Robert met a spunky Italian woman (who’s name I forget). They were together until her passing three years ago. They travelled the world together, logging over 20,000 miles on bicycle! She wanted to marry, but he was a bit leery – she loved alcohol.

He has amazing energy, is handsome and quite charming. Robert attributes his longevity to walking 2-4 miles each day, eating mostly fish (and chocolate – another of my vices), being a non-smoker and occasional drinker and continuing to work (for a Boston rental car company, as a driver, several days a week). In the winter, he treks to Florida and stays at the home of a longtime friend in Ft. Lauderdale – a former yacht captain. They have travelled together up and down the east coast and to the Caribbean.

Robert shared his Mayflower genealogy (Standish & Bradford) written by his aunts as well as the Pratt family genealogy (because he noticed that I also have Pratts in my family). He talked of the Pratt Farm, Middleborough, MA, which was in his family for 200 years or more, and his visits there as a child. He recalled an auction that was held to sell off the treasures in the old homestead – one being the Hall family bible, another a musket used in the Revolution inscribed with the name of Moses Standish, his ancestor, and a Pilgrim a era bureau which netted only $15,000 because the legs had been replaced . In hindsight, he wishes he had kept some of these heirlooms. But being of such a young age, he hadn’t much interest in his family’s history.

His family owned Sachem Rock, a 31.6 acre farm in the Town of East Bridgewater. Robert pointed out that he was a Republican. His favorite place in the world is Oahu. He is a former Kiwanian (with perfect attendance for 22 years), as am I, and a Mason. He spends a few days each year visiting Portland,Maine, during Fryeburg Fair week (where I work the Kiwanis coffee booth! ), which he attends on Senior Citizens Day (Tuesday). A highlight is eating ice cream. He used to eat at the Linden Diner in Malden (a block from where I grew up)… Sadly, most all of his friends are gone from this earth, but he keeps busy and has started to make some younger friends.

We parted ways after about four hours, promising to see each other again when Robert returns from Florida in April. I went to hug him – he stiffened – a true Hall trait!! I realized, related genetically, or not, I am a Hall!!

UPDATE: We are Hall’s!! There was a 3rd Hall family in Bristol County in 1727!  http://passagetothepast.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/im-going-to-disney-world/

We also match another Hall who descends from Joseph HALL (1745-1825), born England, who married Mary Ann Hitt Martin Strange and lived in Harrison and Lewis Counties, West Virginia – http://www.eg.bucknell.edu/~hyde/hall/

Exciting News!!!!

I just received word that I have officially been accepted to the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) National Society for my 5th g-grandfather, Lt Brian Hall effective July 5th. I have attended several local meetings in anticipation of being accepted, but it’s nice to finally be official and quite an honor! and how appropriate that I was accepted just after our day of Independence!

The DAR organization promotes historic preservation, patriotism and education through the work of 32 related committees. There are more than 168,000 members in over 3,000 chapters nationwide!

I had to provide proof for each date and place, for each generation, starting with myself and going back lineally to Brian. In the first three generations, these proofs had to consist of photocopies of birth, marriage, and death documents. For other generations back to the Brian, I had to provide proof such as cemetery records, obituaries, probate records, wills, census records and published vital records. Relationships between generations HAD to be proven.

After gathering all the data, it had to be input on to the application and printed on special paper. Special thanks go to Jane Lasselle, the Anna Stickney chapter regent. Without her, I would still be working on my application! Of course I pulled everything together and realized at the 11th hour that I didn’t have my husband’s birth certificate! Ironic that one of the easiest parts of my research, held the submission up another 10 days.

Mary (Pendleton) Brettun Cross Morey grandmother to my Brian Hall???

One of my many brick walls is the identity of Lt. Brian Hall’s parents.  Brian is my 5th g-grandfather who’s service to our country has bestowed upon me the honor of being accepted to the Daughter’s of the American Revolution Society.

The First Book of Raynham (MA) Records (Raynham is in Bristol County), 1700–1835 (Online database: NewEnglandAncestors.org, New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2003), (Handwritten unpublished transcription, transcriber unknown, “First Book of Raynham Records,” donated to NEHGS in 1897) lists his parents as:

              Year Date Record   Type  
              1727 July 9 Brian son of John Hall 3d of Taunton & Mary his wife   Birth  

 

There is speculation (in unsourced published genealogies) that Brian’s mother was Mary Brettun, granddaughter of Mary (Pendleton) Brettun Cross Morey who was the granddaughter of Brian Pendleton a wealthy Englishman born about 1599. He was one of the early settlers of Watertown and Sudbury, MA and owned quite a bit of land in the Saco area of Maine and Portsmouth New Hampshire.

Mary (Pendleton) Brettun Cross Morey (possibly Brian’s grandmother) left a will.  It is indexed under the name “Marcy Morey” in ”Abstracts of Bristol County, Massachusetts Probate Records, 1687-1745″ H. L. Peter Rounds.

Many years ago I stopped in at the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston and got an actual copy of Mary Morey’s will which they have on microfilm.

Below is a small section which I transcribed. Not “transcription perfect” as required by the BCG, but good enough for me – I added some punctuation to make it easier for the reader (the original has no commas between the names):

….Item – I Give and Bequeath to my Grand Children William Brettun, Abiale Brettun, Ebenezer Brettun, Pendleton Brettun, Mary Hall, Lydia Brettun, Sarah Brettun, Elizabeth Brettun, & Abigail Brettun,  all the remaining three quarters of my Real Estate lands Meadows & ____ which belong to me to be equally divided between them Only that my granddaughter Mary Hall is to enjoy her part during her life and after her deceased her children to enjoy her part equally between them and their heirs….

The original will doesn’t tell us much more about Mary Hall, but it is interesting that Mary is called out separately.  Perhaps implying that Mary Hall already had a child or children?  The will was written in 1732.  Brian Hall would have been about 5 years old and living in Bristol County. 

In any case, the will clearly reads “Mary Morey” and not “Marcy Morey”.  It gives enough of a description of the actual land in Maine and New Hampshire so that a researcher (hopefully me someday) could identify land deeds related to this  property and perhaps follow the book and page numbers to determine if any of the land mentioned ends up in the hands of Lt Brian Hall, who was by the way, a large land holder.

Identifying the Parents of Horatio Hall

Identifying the Parents of Horatio Hall

By Linda Hall-Little

BACKGROUND

Hall family researcher Rev. David B. Hall in his book The Halls of New England makes the claim that  Horatio Hall was born 18 June 1802 in Norton, Massachusetts; died 11 May 1884 in Malden, Massachusetts and was the child of Major Brian Hall and Polly Lane prominent citizens of Norton, Massachusetts. He says: “Brian was a farmer and landholder who volunteered at an early age on the Revolutionary rolls and was subsequently major of artillery in the old 4th Regiment. He took a leading position among his townsmen, was a member of the board of assessors and selectman for about twenty years and was a member of the old Congregational Society”.  No sources are given, most of Rev. Hall’s data was collected by writing letters of inquiry to Hall families.

Rev. Hall lists this Hall family as follows[1]:

  1. BRIAN HALL: b. 1762 – d. 1833  m. 1788 POLLY LANE : b. Unknown – d. 1846
    1. POLLY: b. 1788 – d. 1834, single
    2. ISAAC: b. 1790 – d. 1869
    3. SOPHIA: b. 1792 – d. 1862, married HORATIO BARNEY
    4. MARCIA: b. 1794 – d. 1862, married GEORGE L. SUTTON
    5. BRIAN: b. 1797 – d. 1839
    6. MILTON: b. 1799 – d. unknown
    7. HORATIO: b. 1802 – d. 1884
    8. EPHRAIM L: b. 1804 – d. 1870

Robert Leo Hall, in the publication George Hall and His Descendants, 1603-1669, presents the same information all data is unsourced or cite David Hall’s book as a source[2].

The age of 81 and 10 months, birth place of Norton, Massachusetts, death location of Malden, Massachusetts and death date of 11 May 1884 as stated in Horatio’s death record are in line with Rev. Hall’s published details.  The death certificate conflicts by naming Horatio’s parents as Byron Hall and Mary both born in Norton, Massachusetts[3] and not Brian Hall and Polly of Norton, Massachusetts.

There is one marriage recorded in the vital records of Bristol County in this time period for a variant of Brian Hall as follows: “Briant [int. Bryant] and Polley [int. Polly] Lane Jan., 1788”, there are no variants in the vital records of Byron and Mary[4].  However it should be noted that a nickname for Mary was commonly Polly[5].

In the 1790 (Bryant), 1800 (Brian), 1810 (Brian) and 1820 (Briatt) census data there is only one variation in each census year of the name Brian Hall found in Bristol County, Massachusetts under the surname Hall, all are in the town of Norton[6]

There is one Horatio Hall listed in Norton, Massachusetts births.  The given birth date is 18 June 1802, his parents names are not given. Using the names in Hall’s publication as a guideline, births for potential children of Brian and Polly include[7]:

  • Polley, ch. Briant and Polley, June 28, 1788
  • Isaac, ch. Briant and Polley, Oct. 24, 1790
  • Sophia, ch. Briant and Polley, Aug 1, 1792
  • Marshia, ch Briant and Polley. Dec 10, 1794
  • Brian, May 24, 1797 [no parents named]
  • Milton, Oct. 19, 1799 [no parents named]
  • Ephraim Lane, Oct 16, 1804 [no parents named].

There is some consistency in vital records in that parents’ names are mentioned for the Hall children born to Brian and Polly through 1794 and then no parents are listed for the Hall children born later.  Perhaps the names were recorded at different times or perhaps the last four children were of different parents.

It should be further noted that there are no children born to “Brian and Mary “in the published directory of Norton births[8].  

THE QUESTION

Was Byron an alternate spelling or misspelling for Brian (Briant); and Polly (Polley) a nickname for Mary? or

Was Horatio placed in the wrong Hall family by Rev. Hall (an occurrence found to be common in this genealogy[9])?

A CLOSER LOOK AT CENSUS DATA – BRIAN HALL OF NORTON, MASSACHUSETTS

  Males 16 & over Males 1-15 Females
1790 Bryant 1 1 2

 

Head of Household Free White Males Free White Females
0 thru 9 10 thru 15 16 thru 25 26 thru 44 45 and over 0 thru 9 10 thru 15 16 thru 25 26 thru 44 45 and over
                     
1800 Brian 2 1   1   2 1   2  

 

Head of Household Free White Males Free White Females
0 thru 9 10 thru 15 16 thru 25 26 thru 44 45 and over 0 thru 9 10 thru 15 16 thru 25 26 thru 44 45 and over
                     
1810 Brian 2 2 1   1   1 2   1

 

Head of Household Males Females
0 thru 9 10 thru 15 16 thru 18 18 thru 25 26 thru 44 45 and over 0 thru 9 10 thru 15 16 thru 25 26 thru 44 45 and over
                       
1820 Briatt Hall   1   1   1     1 1 1

 

If the vital records and David Hall’s information is correct, then by the year 1810 all of the children’s births had occurred and they would possibly all be living at home.  We find a perfect match in the census data. In 1810, Brian is listed with 8 children as follows, names and ages are approximate based on vital records:

5 boys

  • 2  ages 0-9  – Horatio (8), Ephraim (6)
  • 2 ages 10-15  – Brian (13), Milton (11)
  • 1 age 16-25 – Isaac (20)

3 girls

  • 1 ages 10-15 – Marcia (15). 
  • 2 age 16-25 – Polly (22), Sophia (18) [10].

In 1790 and 1800, the number children living in the household and their ages are also as expected[11].  The census of 1820 is difficult to analyze as many of the children had come of age and may have moved out of the home[12].

Although the census data does not prove anything on its own, it adds to other information collected and aids in the development of stronger evidence.

BRIAN HALL’S SON BRIAN LATE OF SEEKONK HEIRS

In a document found in an 1832 pension file, Major Brian Hall certifies that he “well remembers John Hall of Norton in the County of Bristol”.  In this document, Brian also mentions that he is in his 70th year of age, that he was born in Norton, and always lived in said town until 1821 when he moved to Providence[13]

If Brian was 70 in 1832 then he was born about 1762 which is the birth year given by Rev. Hall for the Brian who fathered Horatio[14]. Vital records of Norton lists a birth for “Brian, Maj., 10 April 1763”[15].  That coupled with a cemetery transcription “HALL Maj. Brian, formerly of Norton, Mass., at Providence, in 70th year, soldier of the Revolution, Jan. 13, 1833” further substantiates the claim that this is the same man mentioned in The Halls of New England[16].

If Brian Hall was living in Providence then perhaps his wife stayed in this area after his death and perhaps some of his children might also be living in this area.

A Brian Hall, probably a son of Major Brian and Polly, is buried in the North Burial Ground in Providence, Rhode Island (b. 1798c – d. 1839)[17].

A probate record dated 2 April 1839 lists the heirs of this Brian Hall late of Seekonk, Massachusetts as[18]:

To the judge of Probate for the County of Bristol,  [UNREADABLE] that the heirs of Brian Hall late of Seekonk in said county deceased who has lately died intestate leaving goods and estate of which administration is necessary – we therefore request that you Hon would appoint Theophilus Hutchins Administrator on said estate agreeably to law in such cases made and provided. Seekonk April 2nd 1839. 

Polly Hall

Milton Hall

Horatio Hall

Horatio Barney and wife

George L. Sutton and wife

Ephraim L. Hall

Isaac Hall

 A search of Rhode Island deeds reveals the following transactions between Hall’s with these names:

Brian Hall and wife Henrietta of Seekonk sell to Ephraim L. Hall of Providence on 10 March 1838 land at so called India Point 20×80 feet plus a house[19].

Ephraim L. Hall of Providence sells on 29 November 1839 to Milton Hall of Providence 1/7th of land at so called India Point 20×80 feet plus a house of the same estate he purchased from Brian and Henrietta Hall in March 1838[20].

Ephraim L. Hall of Providence sells on 29 November 1839 to Horatio Hall of Seekonk 1/7th of land at so called India Point 20×80 feet plus a house of the same estate he purchased from Brian and Henrietta Hall in March 1838[21].

Ephraim L. Hall of Providence sells on 29 November 1839 to Isaac Hall of Providence 1/7th of land at so called India Point 20×80 feet plus a house of the same estate he purchased from Brian and Henrietta Hall in March 1838[22].

Ephraim L. Hall of Providence sells on 29 November 1839 to Marcia Sutton wife of Samuel Sutton of Seekonk 1/7th of land at so called India Point 20×80 feet plus a house of the same estate he purchased from Brian and Henrietta Hall in March 1838[23].

Horatio Hall of Seekonk sells on March 9, 1840 to Milton Hall Providence of 1/7th of land at so called India Point 20×80 feet plus a house of the same estate which Ephraim L Hall purchased from Brian and Henrietta Hall in March 10, 1838[24].   

Polly Hall of Providence, Isaac Hall of Providence, George Sutton and wife Marcia of Seekonk, Horatio Barney and wife Sophy of Providence sell [no date but filed Mar 28, 1840] to Milton Hall of Providence 1/7th of land at so called India Point 20×80 feet plus a house of the same estate which Ephraim L Hall purchased from Brian and Henrietta Hall in March 10, 1838[25].

Henrietta Hall, probably his wife, b. 1796c died on Mar 11, 1838 and is also buried at the North Burial Ground in Providence, Rhode Island. [26]

If Brian Hall of Seekonk died without a wife or children, then he may have left his estate to his living relatives, possibly his mother Polly and siblings.

HORATIO AND BRIAN HALL BROTHERS?

Horatio Hall who died in Malden, Massachusetts in 1884 was living in Seekonk and Providence from 1833 through at least 1840 and is most likely the named heir of Brian Hall who died in Seekonk in 1839.

In 1832 Horatio married Elizabeth Pinder in Malden, Massachusetts[27].  His first child Mary Elizabeth was born in Rhode Island in 1833[28], his second David Pinder is also born in Rhode Island in 1835[29] , his third Abby Francis in Seekonk, Massachusetts in 1838[30], birth records are not found for the fourth, Lucy M., however she died at age five in Malden in late 1844[31].

In 1836, we find a Horatio Hall, a laborer, in the Providence directory living on India Point at the same address as Polly Hall (widow) and Ephraim L. Hall[32].

In the 1840 census a Horatio Hall is living in Seekonk, Massachusetts with family members as follows males age 5-10 (1), males age 30-40 (1) females: under 5 (1), age 5-10 (1), age 10-15 (1), age 30-40 (1)[33].  Although the individual name are not detailed in 1840 the family’s expected names and ages (based on the 1850 census are as follows): Horatio would have been about age 38, Elizabeth about  age 30, Mary about age 7/8, David about age 5/6, Abby about age 2/3 and Lucy an infant.

 In 1850, the family is found in Malden, Massachusetts: Horatio (48, born Mass), Elizabeth (40, born Mass), Mary (18, born RI), David (16, born RI), Abby (13, born Mass), Ellen (9, born Mass), Lucy (4, born Mass)[34].  Horatio Hall remains in Malden, Massachusetts until the time of his death[35].

DEATH RECORDS AND PARENTS OF HEIRS OF BRIAN LATE OF SEEKONK

Two death records of Brian’s heirs provide further information regarding parent names:

Isaac Hall died 10 December 1869, single, age 78, farmer, died of old age, born and died in Norton, parents Brian Hall and Polly Lane both born in Norton[36].

Ephraim Lane Hall, died 22 January 1870, married, age 65, died of diabetes, mechanic, born and died in Norton, parents Polly Lane and Brian Hall born in Norton[37].

HORATIO HALL’S DAUGHTERS LUCY MASON HALL

A marriage intention in Seekonk was made between a Brian Hall and Lucy Mason on 23 March 1839. There is no marriage record found.  Brian died on 28 March 1839 at age 42, five days later[38]

Horatio Hall later names two of his daughter’s Lucy Mason Hall:

The first Lucy M. Hall daughter of Horatio and Elizabeth died of dropsy at age 5 on 4 November 1844 in Malden, Massachusetts[39].

A portion of the obituary of the second Lucy follows: Miss Lucy Mason Hall of 29 Richardson Street died at her home Saturday noon of heart failure after an illness of less than half an hour.  Miss Hall was at work in the kitchen when first taken ill and had suffered heart attacks before. She was born in this city and was the daughter of Horatio and Elizabeth Pindar Hall.  She is survived by two sisters, Mrs David M Patten with whom she lived, and Mrs. Levi F Nichols of Cross Street and three brothers, Horatio, driver of Hose 2, AE Hall of Forest St and David B. Hall of Lowell[40]

SUMMARY

Most of Rev. Hall’s data was gathered from responses to his requests for information in the form of written letters to Hall families.  More likely than not, since Horatio was still living when the book was published, the book is probably accurate[41].

A review of Horatio Hall’s birth certificate by itself leaves a question if his parents were Brian (Briant) Hall; and Polly (Polley) Lane of Norton and Providence.

However, once corroborated with information from other sources, the statement seems likely. 

First, census data of Bristol County lists only one variant of the name Brian Hall from 1790 to 1820.  The number of children matches that of published records in the years that the children would have been living with their parents.  If Horatio was born in 1802 to a Byron and living in Norton, this family is the only close match[42].

Next, Brian Hall of Seekonk sold land in India Point, to Ephraim L. Hall in 1838.  This land is bought and resold to many other Hall’s all of whom are also listed as Brian’s heirs[43]:

If Brian Hall was a widower at the time of his death then he may have left his possessions to his mother and siblings[44]

Then, Ephraim Lane Hall, Horatio Hall and Polly Hall (widow) are found living in India Point in 1836[45].   Ephraim’s middle name of Lane suggests that the widow Polly may have been Polly Lane, wife of the deceased elder Brian Hall[46].  In the early 1830’s the area called India Point (now part of Providence, Rhode Island) was part of Seekonk, Massachusetts[47].

In March of 1840 Horatio Hall of Seekonk sells to Milton Hall of Providence his share of this land at India Point[48].  There is one Horatio Hall found living in Seekonk in the 1840 census.  He is of the same age as the Horatio Hall who was born in Norton in 1802 and died in Malden in 1884. Horatio is listed with a woman of the same age and four children[49].  The age ranges of the children are slightly off; however family size and relative ages are consistent with information from later census, marriage and death records which suggest that his first four children were born in the area of Rhode Island and Seekonk[50].

Next, Norton vital records for Polley, Isaac, Sophia and Marshia Hall name parents as Briant and Polley Hall[51].  Death records of Isaac Hall and Ephraim Lane Hall who were both born in Norton name parents as Polly Lane and Brian Hall born in Norton[52].  All of these names are the same as those listed as heirs of the late Brian Hall of Seekonk[53].  

Last, Brian Hall late of Seekonk registered his intention to marry Lucy Mason[54].  Horatio Hall later names two of his daughters Lucy Mason Hall further strengthening the case that these two men were related[55].

In summary, if Horatio Hall is a brother of Brian Hall late of Seekonk and if the heirs listed in Brian’s will are his mother and siblings, and if those siblings born before and after Horatio were children of Brian (Briant) Hall and Polly (Polley) Lane born in Norton then Horatio’s parents were also Brian (Briant) Hall and Polly (Polley) Lane born in Norton as Rev. Hall claims.
