Oregon Marriage records show Frances Hall marrying Amos Holman in 1913.
The 1920 Census shows Frances is married to Amos Holman. Notice Frances's Father was born in Kentucky and her Mother in Missouri.

The 1900 Census shows Frances is married to R P Hall (Reuben Payne Hall). Notice again, Frances's Father was born in Kentucky and her Mom in Missouri. The dates match too, so this is the same Frances.

Reason Hall (Reuben's father) was born in either Virginia or Georgia, so Frances isn't Reuben's brother or Reason's daughter. And Frances isn't listed in the 1860 Census with Reason and Martha Hall.

Find-a-Grave contributor Charleene's research shows Frances is a daughter of Hudson Bevens and Mary (Wilson) Bevens.

The above memorial must be one of the 1st ones ever written by me, judging by the way I wrote it. It sucks.

Frances A. Bevens was born in Missouri

I've gone back over trying to find the documents mentioned above and have come across the 1900 Census showing Frances and Reuben living in Jefferson, Marion Co., Oregon with 2 children, Rupert Hall, b.Oct.1879, and Grace Hall, b.Apr.1883, both b. in Oregon, thus the Halls were in Oregon in at least 1879. However, I then came across a 1910 Census which I didn't mention before, this one listing Frances A.Hall as a widow, which made sense as Reuben had died in 1909. She stated this time that she'd been born in 1853 in Missouri (instead of 1851 or 1852) and her residence was now Buena Vista, Polk County, OR. Rupert and Grace were no longer in the home, but an older daughter, Mittie Hall, b.1873 in Oregon, most likely her oldest child, was now in the home. There was also a Clyde L. Williamson, age 13, born in Canada, living in the home as well. Both of his parents were born in the US. There was no relationship stated between Clyde and Frances and Mittie. He was most likely a roomer or boarder while attending school to help Frances out as she was now in her late 50's and a widow.
She went on to marry Amos Holman in 1913 and was in her last census in 1920. She died in Buena Vista, Oregon in 1922 and was buried under the name Frances Hall (with Holman written above), joining her 1st husband, Reuben Payne Hall, at the Buena Vista Cemetery, Buena Vista, Oregon.
Feb 15, 2013: The Hall family arrived in the Willamette Valley of Oregon Territory in Spring, 1847. Reason B. Hall founded the town of Buena Vista, Oregon, which, at one time, was considered for the state capital when Oregon became a state on Feb 14th, 1859. I have received an email from Gary Honts which has led me to do quite a bit of research on Mr. Hall and his family. I will update his memorial as soon as possible. A great big Thank You goes out to Gary Honts.

I hope this memorial is a better one than the first one. I will try to find your children, too, more of my kin. Rest In Peace, Frances. Wish I knew more about you than I still do. Your Burkhart cousin,
