Here's what I have on this family.

I see I'm showing Abraham Hall marrying Elizabeth Humphreys in Rowan County
in 1816, and that I had therefore concluded that this was the son Abah
rather than the father. If this is actually a marriage by Abraham Hall
Sr., then presumably there was a previous wife to account for the children
over 10 in the 1820 census. Gerri, can you clarify this?

First Generation
- -------------------------------------------

1. Abraham HALL. Died About 1839.

His will dated 8 Mar 1835, probated Aug 1839. Davie Co. will book I: 21.

Rowan County 1820 census, Forks of the Yadkin
011001 12201

He married Elizabeth ?? [HALL].

Named in her husband's will written 1835.

They had the following children:

2 i. Sarah HALL
3 ii. Deborah HALL
4 iii. Hannah HALL
5 iv. Elizabeth HALL
6 v. Abah HALL

Second Generation
- -------------------------------------------

2. Sarah HALL.

Named as Sarah Hall in her father's will dated 8 Mar 1835, thus not yet married

3. Deborah HALL. Born About 1793 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. 1850 Davie census
ID Number 1850-0874A.

Deborah Humphreys is named in the will of Abraham Hall, 1839. Debora
Humprhies age 57 is living with Rose Humphries 16 in the 1850 census, next
door to William Humphries age 24 and his family. I am assuming that this
is the same person, and that she is the widow of William Humphreys Sr.

1860 Davie County census, transcript page 58, household 458; Chinquepin district
D. Umpres 73
Roseann 24

Both are listed with occupation spinner.

She married William HUMPHREYS, 2 Jun 1815 in Rowan Co. NC [bond date].

Rowan County 1820 census, Forks of the Yadkin
110010 20200

They had the following children:

7 i. William HUMPHREYS
8 ii. Rose HUMPHREYS

4. Hannah HALL. Born About 1801 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. ID Number 1850-0900B.

Named as Hannah Standly in her father's will

She married Nathaniel STANLY, son of Joseph STANLY & Mary MOORE. Born About
1801 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. Occupation cooper. ID Number 1850-0900A.

In the 1850 census as Nathan. Ron Booe e-mail 7/15/99 gives his name as
Nathaniel.

Mary Stanly age 69 is living with them in 1850. I'm assuming she's his mother.

I don't find a Rowan County marriage bond for this couple.

1860 Davie County census, transcript page 55, household 436; Chinquepin district
Nath. Stanly Sr. 36
Hanah 56
Louisa 17
Amos 15
Jefferson 34
Jane E.B. 18

They had the following children:

9 i. Emily STANLY
10 ii. Nathan STANLY
11 iii. Jefferson Jackson STANLY
12 iv. Sarah STANLY
13 v. Lydia STANLY
14 vi. Louisa STANLY
15 vii. Amos STANLY

5. Elizabeth HALL.

Named as Elizabeth Adams in her father's will. Could this be the Elizabeth
Adams age 50 in Davie Co. 1850 census, living alone, household 192?

She married William ADAMS, 2 Sep 1819 in Rowan Co. NC [bond date].

1820 Rowan County census, Forks of the Yadkin
000100 00100

Is this one of the William Adams age 47 in 1850, household 190?

6. Abah HALL.

He was probably deceased by 8 Mar 1835, since his father names grandsons
George and Abraham Hall in his will as heirs of Abah Hall. I suspect he is
the Abraham Hall who married Elizabeth Humphreys, 3/24/1816, Rowan County.

Children:

16 i. George HALL
17 ii. Abraham HALL

Third Generation
- -------------------------------------------

7. William HUMPHREYS. Born About 1826 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. Occupation
farmer. ID Number 1850-0873A.

Humphries in the 1850 census, Humphreys in his marriage bond and in his
mother Deborah's marriage bond and her father's will.

Note that he didn't marry Sarah until 1849, but Mary is 3 years old in the
1850 census. Was she from a previous marriage?

He married Sarah BAKER, 23 Jun 1849 in Davie Co. NC. Born About 1826 in
Rowan/Davie Co. NC. ID Number 1850-0873B. They had the following children:

18 i. Mary HUMPHREYS
19 ii. Isaiah HUMPHREYS

8. Rose HUMPHREYS. Born About 1834 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. ID Number 1850-0874B.

Living with her mother in 1850, and also in 1860. In 1850 there is another
Rose Humphries of about the same age, living with John and Eliza Grimes -
is this a duplicate entry?

9. Emily STANLY. Born About 1827 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. ID Number 1850-0900C.

10. Nathan STANLY. Born 11 Mar 1832 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. ID Number
1850-0900D.

He is listed in Davie County Heritage as a casualty in the Civil War.

1860 Davie County census, transcript page 55, household 437; Chinquepin district
Nath. Stanly Jr. 27
Sarah 24
Sarah Hall 27

He married Sarah A. or S. Hall 5 Feb 1860. Her birthdate is given in the
marriage record as 6/1/1836. Is she Sally Hall of the 1850 census,
daughter of Lydia? Who is the other Sarah, age 27?

11. Jefferson Jackson STANLY. Born About 1834 in Rowan/Davie Co. NC. ID
Number 1850-0900E.

He married Jane SWATHLANDER, 11 Mar 1860 in Davie Co. NC. Born About 1842.

15. Amos STANLY. Born About 1847 in Davie Co. NC. ID Number 1850-0900I.

Amy, female, in 1850; Amos, male in 1860.

Ron Booe 7/15/99 tells me this child is Amos.

16. George HALL.

17. Abraham HALL.
