HALL, Gilbert E.
Gilbert E. Hall, farmer, Bethany Township, occupies 40 acres of section 29, being the northwest quarter of the northwest quarter, and is an early settler of this county. He was born in Litchfield Township, Medina Co., Ohio, Oct. 7, 1834. His father, Frederick Hall, was a farmer of Genesee Co., N. Y., and his mother was Eliza, nee Beedle.
When 20 years of age, Mr. Hall left his home in Ohio, came to Fulton Township, this county, and engaged in hard and steady work for two years at lumbering and clearing land. Thus he accumulated sufficient means to buy 80 acres of land at 50 cents an acre, on section 26, Fulton Township, then covered with timber. He cleared a little space in the woods, erected a log cabin and proceeded to clear up a farm. After reducing about 14 acres he exchanged for 80 acres on the same section, all timber, and when he had cleared about 30 acres here and made some other improvements, the war aroused his patriotic spirit and carried him away to the field of carnage. Jan. 3, 1864, he enlisted in Co. I, 27th Mich. Vol. Inf., under Capt. Wood, and served until the close of the war, participating in the engagements of the Wilderness, at Spottsylvania and Cold Harbor, at which latter place, June 5,1864, a finger was shot off from his right hand. The wound was severe, as he came near losing his hand, and he was laid up until the following November, when he volunteered for guard duty, and returned to his regiment in June, 1865. He was discharged at Detroit, Mich., Aug. 26, 1865.
He then returned to Fulton Township. In March, 1868, he exchanged his land there for his present farm of 40 acres, on which he has cleared about 32 acres and erected a nice house, barns, etc., and planted an orchard. He is now Highway Commissioner.
Mr. Hall was married in Fulton Township, Sept. 13, 1857, to Miss Lucy A., daughter of Palmer and Betsey Smith. She was born in Erie Co., N. Y., Aug. 29, 1832. They have one daughter, Ella A., who is now the wife of John J. Miller, of Bethany Township, and they also have one child. Maud A.
