Thomas Hall was born in approximately 1749 in the Duck Creek area of Kent County, Delaware. Records are sparse until he married Elizabeth Dickinson of "Croisadore" Trappe, Talbot County, Maryland. She came from a well-to-do tobacco and political family. Her grandfather, Samuel D. Dickinson, left around 200 acres of land in Talbot County to Elizabeth in his will of 1760. Since all five of their children were born between 1770 and 1776, we can only assume that Thomas and Elizabeth lived on that land during this period. Between 1776 and 1783, Thomas served in various capacities during the Revolutionary War and afterward.

By 1782, this family of seven was living in Hampshire County, Virginia (WVA) according to the 1782 enumerations. Thomas acquired land warrants as a surveyor for George Washington in Rockingham and Pendleton counties then purchased 500 acres in Barbour County in 1813.

Elizabeth Dickinson Hall died at Ft. Seybert, Pendleton County around 1801. Shortly thereafter, Thomas and a few of his sons moved further west to the counties of Lewis, Barbour and Harrison.

On April 25, 1805, Thomas married Elizabeth Reger Talbot(t) widow of Cottrill Talbot(t). They added 5 more children to the 8 she had with Cottrill Talbot(t) and settled near Volga, Barbour County.
