William, son of John and Martha (Gladden) Hall, married Dorcas Jones. They were the parents of Jemima Ann, Elisha Jones, Judith Emeline, and John Thomas. According to a Hall family history (written by his nephew, Nathaniel B. Hall), William died of heart failure.

From the Fairfield Archives: "L. M. Ford (d. 1911) 'Memories, Traditions and History of Rocky Mount and Vicinity' Typescript, Chester Library: P. 20 'Dr. Wm. E. Hall was the wealthiest man of this community. He was his own manager and attended to the slaves on his five plantations in South Carolina. He also owned two places in Georgia, which he frequently visited. His crops were paying ones. He was the best of neighbors and a very benevolent man. No one ever went to him for a favor and came away empty handed. His slaves loved him devotedly and some of them even after emancipation could not speak of him without tears coursing down their cheeks. He was a strong pillow in Bethesda Church. This was broken up by his death and his place has not since been filled.'"
