from the 1976 Hendricks County History (pages 319-320):

Nitis Hall (b. August 23, 1889, d. December 1, 1965) was the fifth child of Douglas and Nancy Jane (Temple) Hall who were married in Danville, Illinois on Dec. 6, 1880. About 1901, the Hall family moved to the Job Hadley farm northeast of Lizton, then owned by Dr. Oscar B. Johnson. They lived there until 1916. Nitis Hall began his education at the Hall School, then went to No. 8 School and high school at Lizton where he graduated in 1906. He attended Central Normal College in Danville and Indiana State for a short time and began teaching in a one-room school. Nitis learned that first year that he had to be a strict disciplinarian to be able to teach. On April 16, 1911, Nitis married Mary Eula Kennedy (b. July 19, 1893, d. April 1, 1924), the daughter of Iza (Leak) Kennedy and T. N. Kennedy. Nitis and Mary Hall had four children: Mary Kathryn, Elizabeth Marie, John Douglas and James Kennedy Hall. Nitis taught at New Winchester and Pittsboro and was teaching at Lizton when his wife, Mary Eula Hall, died on April 1, 1924. On December 20, 1924, Nitis married Laura Marie Geeski (b. June 10, 1888). To them was born one son, Charles Elmer Hall on January 16, 1926. Nitis taught in northern Indiana until he retired from teaching in 1934. After that, he held other jobs, such as parole officer at the Indiana Boys School in Plainfield, guard at a plant in Indianapolis during World War II and a case worker for the Hendricks County Welfare Board. He was a veteran of World War I. He was one of four brothers who served at the same time in the U. S. Army. He belonged to the American Legion, Knights of Pythias Lodge, Red Men's Lodge of Lizton, Masonic Lodge at Pittsboro and the Indiana Retired Teachers Association.

from the Republican for Dec. 9, 1965:

Services for Nitis Hall, well-known Lizton resident, were Saturday afternoon from the Lizton Christian Church with the Rev. Paul E. Whitsett officiating. Burial was in the Lizton K. of P. Cemetery. Arrangements were by the Baker Funeral Home, Danville. He died December 1 (1965) in the Memorial Nursing Home, Indianapolis, following an extended illness. A native of Lizton, he was born August 23, 1889, the son of the late Douglas and Nancy Jane (Temple) Hall. A retired school teacher, he received his education in the former Central Normal College and Indiana State University. He taught school throughout the state of Indiana. He was a veteran of World War I, a member of the American Legion, Pittsboro Masonic Lodge, Order of Red Men, Knights of Pythias and the Lizton Christian Church. After his retirement from teaching, he was employed as a parole officer at the Indiana Boys School, Indiana State Highway Department and the Hendricks County Welfare Department.
