Deloris, This is not directly Hall related, but do you know if Barnaby
McKinnie is the same person as Barnabe McKinney who married Mary Exum? Does
anyone know if Mary Exum was related to Barnaby Drake, who was the father of
Exum Drake? Exum Drake was my 5gtgrandfather, born abt 1750 in Southhampton,
Va. My Drakes and Halls moved to the same area of south Ga. Thanks, Carol

Subject: [NCHALIFA] Ignatius Hall (1783)
You may already have this, but here is what I see on William Hall. He first
appears in Halifax here:
"Abstracts of Deeds Halifax Co., NC, 1758-1771"
JOEL LANE Esq. of Halifax Co. to WILLIAM HALL gentleman of Northampton Co.
5 Aug. 1762. 100 pds. 460 acres which was part of a patent to COLO.
BARNABY McKINNIE and willed by him to WILLIAM CULLENDER whose son WILLIAM
CULLENDER the younger actually inherited because of the former's decease,
and this latter WILLIAM CULLENDER left the region and the land was sold at
public auction to satisfy a debt; JAMES LANE so purchased it and JOEL LANE
the sheriff purchased it from him on south side of Coneconary [Swamp] "known
by the kname of CULLENDER's".
JOEL LANE. Wit: WM. BRANCH, BRIDGMAN JOYNER. Sept. Ct. 1762 CC Jos.
In Northampton Co. Wills, 1759-1769, Will Book 1, pg. 108, there is a will
for JAMES HALL, dtd Dec. 23, 1763
JAMES HALL of the county of Amelia, mentions daughter RUTH, sons JAMES,
THEODRICK, WILLIAM and BENJAMIN; his wife's name is not mentioned in the
will, but she and son JAMES were appointed executors, and the will was
proven in Aug. 1764, with executrix RUTH HALL, so I assume she was the
Witnesses to the will were ALEXANDER GRAY, EDWARD THWEAT, DANIEL THWEAT,
In some of the Halifax Co. records, William Hall is referred to as Colonel
William Hall, so he may have been in the militia.
