This site is dedicated to my known HALL family line.  Research and records have proven the earliest known ancestor as James HALL born 29 Jun 1760 in Pennsylvania.  He was my 5x great-grandfather. 

James HALL was active in the US Revolutionary War. His life story reflects frequent migrations of settlers to the colonial western frontier, from Pennsylvania and eventually to the Southeast.

Based on his own testimony - he was moved at an early age to Guildford County, NC; then to Montgomery County, VA where he enlisted for service. He later settled in Blount County, Tennessee where he raised his family and remained until his death in 1836. We’re fortunate to know these facts, and other information on family, marriages, births and deaths - from his application for pension – R4478

This site contains family trees, photos, charts, and sources, and I welcome corrections and especially new information for the growing family tree.

Y-DNA evidence shows this HALL line likely originated in the border regions between Scotland and England.  Unsourced family history suggests that these HALL ancestors came to America via Ireland.

The Haplogroup of our HALL line is R1b1a2a1a1b4.

See the links section to the right for more information on DNA testing. There are already over a dozen known HALLs around the world who share a MCRA (most common recent ancestor) likely within 350-450 years ago.
