Wilhelmina Zilius Hall
Birth: Oct. 23, 1853
Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Death: Oct. 25, 1940
Huntingdon County
Pennsylvania, USA

Wilhelmina "Minnie" (ZILIUS) HALL is my great grandmother. My research indicates that she always went by "Minnie" - I only discovered her real name on several of her daughter's obituaries.

She was born in Rottweil, Wurttemberg, Germany. Her father was Johann ZILIVY(1820).

Her name in Germany was "ZILIVY" which almost certainly corresponds to the Slovak name "ZILAVY." (Slovak for "vein"). She changed her name to the German name "ZILIUS" when she emigrated to the United States in January of 1872.

She had a sister Xaveria (ZILIUS) BLEICHER (1849-1906) who spent her adulthood in Altoona, Pennsylvania. She had a brother Jacob ZILIUS (1843-1922) who spent his adulthood in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.

Minnie spent her entire adult life in Huntingdon, PA. She was united in marriage to Jacob HALL on January 9, 1873, in Huntingdon. They had twelve children:

Child 1 Margaret Mae "Maggie" (HALL) GOODMAN Born 27 Aug 1873 Died 23 Dec 1962
Child 2 William "Will" Martin HALL Born 3 Jan 1875 Died 27 Jul 1955
Child 3 Louisa "Lou" (HALL) STATES Born 28 Jul 1876 Died 8 Apr 1959
Child 4 Catherine "Kate" (HALL) BURRIS Born 23 Jan 1878
Child 5 Minerva "Minnie" (HALL) WATSON Born 16 Sep 1880. Died 15 Nov 1933
Child 6 Charles "Charley" HALL Born 7 Mar 1882 Died 2 Sep 1908
Child 7 George Harry HALL Born 7 Oct 1883
Child 8 Mary "Mame" (HALL) DOEDE Born 8 Oct 1885
Child 9 Ida Grace (HALL) MINSKER Born 6 Jul, 1887
Child 10 Elsie (HALL) KYLOR Born 4 Jun 1890 Died 1977
Child 11 John Howard HALL Born 7 Jul 1892 Died 12 Mar 1955
Child __ Baby died. Born 29 Jan 1894
Child 12 Mabel Mae (HALL) FOSTER b: 4 Nov 1896 Died 10 Nov 1986
Child __ Baby died in Apr 1901

Their last child, Mabel Mae, is my grandmother.

Minnie is buried beside her husband Jacob and their son Charley.
