Birth: Dec. 25, 1828
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 22, 1910
York County
Pennsylvania, USA

The son of Robert & Esther (Clark) Hall, his birth location is also reported to have been Delaware County, Pennsylvania. In 1850, he lived with and/or worked for ax manufacturer Franklin Merrilow in East Goshen, Chester County. He married Margaret Willis about that time and fathered Louis H. (b. @1852) and Margaret (b. ?). In 1860, he was a blacksmith living in District 7, Cecil County, Maryland, and stood 5' 11" tall with dark hair and hazel eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Cecil County September 13, 1861, and mustered into federal service at Baltimore September 14 with the cavalry arm of the Purnell Legion and elected sergeant. The Purnell Legion's cavalry and artillery arms were soon separated and reassigned, which placed him with Independent Battery B, Maryland Light Artillery. He re-enlisted as a Veteran Volunteer January 25, 1864, at Maryland Heights, Maryland, but later that year was in arrest for what appears to have been desertion. Although not punished severely and (strangely) not broken in rank, the army claimed $5.50 for transportation, the standard practice when returning deserters to their regiments. The army also withheld $8 for a lost pistol and holster and $3 for a lost saber and belt. He honorably discharged with his battery July 3, 1865.

Margaret's status is unknown, but he married Martha Ann Coleman August 15, 1880, in Philadelphia. By no later than 1890, he and Martha were living in York Borough, York County, where they ended their lives.
