REUBEN HALL, pedigree as before: was born October 25, 1803, and married Anna, daughter of William and Elizabeth Stewart, March 22, 1827. She was a sister to his brother Asa's wife, and came of highly respectable people. They moved at once, after their marriage; to a place now called Gray's Flats, in Marion county, where he still lives (1886). They were both members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She died March 9, 1872, aged 63 years, 8 months, 29 days. When he was married, the entire wedding party went to his new home, and lived in a small house for two days, while they put up a log house for his home. It was right in the woods, no neighbors near, and early and late he was felling trees and clearing his new land. These are some of the hard times our ancestors had in preparing homes for their children.
Reuben Hall is an intelligent man ; not finely educated, but he has always tried to keep up with the times, and has succeeded well. His unmarried daughter, Julia is at the old home and takes every care of her aged father.

EMMA HALL, pedigree as before: was born December 20, 1809, and was married to Jesse Pigott, September 6, 1837. He was born March 21, 1811. They moved to Hessville, Harrison county, where they still live. Old age has overtaken both, and they await the summons to go up higher. They have been called to mourn the death of all their family but two, some of them when seemingly entering upon a grand career. Mrs. Pigott is a remarkable woman. Her education is limited, but such is her natural acuteness of understanding, that she draws close attention to all she says. Her husband is a well-to-do farmer. I believe they belong to the M. E. Church.

Deceased was from earliest youth a moral, industrious boy, and was converted to Christianity at Oberlin, in 1868, and united himself with the M. E. Church, at Morgantown, in 1870. He lived a consistent and useful member under all circumstances of life, either at home or abroad. He bore his severe illness with wonderful christian fortitude and patience, and died in the faith once given to the Saints.
His disease was typhoid fever, superinduced by over work, both mentally and physically. He looked at his diploma a few days before he died, and said: "It is the price of my life" He is gone! Taken away just upon the threshold of usefulness to his fellow men. He was visited during his illness by numerous friends from far and near; and the large concourse at the funeral attested their respect in very marked manner. But our loss is his eternal gain. He is gone to that bright home above the skies, to meet a dear brother and two sisters gone before, whose angelic forms from the portals of eternal bliss, becken us home.
Dear brother, friend, farewell! [The above beautiful tribute was penned by one of the professors, to whose daughter he was engaged, and who visited him during his last illness]

Mrs. Brewer writes: "When
my parents came through the county seat of Medina county, there was not
a stick of timber amiss, and on a big beech tree, about where the Courthouse
now stands, was marked ‘county seat.’ My second sister was the first white
child born in Medina county. Mother was chased by wolves, while on horseback,
and with one of the children in her arms. The horse jumped the yard fence,
and the wolves were checked by a shot from the sick husband and father,
who had gotten out of bed and stood tottering in the door. They went four
miles to church. For one whole summer and until December they cooked out

of doors, and hung quilts up for doors and windows. They borrowed a stove of a neighbor. John Courtney, a cousin, of Virginia, visited them in 1835. Father was sick in the summer of 1834, and mother went out and helped roll logs, and they sowed some wheat and had a good crop the next year. Mother drove the oxen, to harrow it in. The night mother died she said she felt better, and had them put out the light. Sister Elizabeth lay down on a bed close by, and near enough to touch her, and about 10 o'clock she did not hear her breathe, and when she sprang up and spoke to her, she was dead. I have heard father tell how they had to run to the block-house for fear of Indians. Once some one discovered the Indians coming, and Levi Morgan ran to alarm the neighbors, and the rest would run to the block-house. A little girl was sent to one house---I think it was one of father's nieces. She was a little one, and she ran to the house and all she could say was, 'Injuns come, Levi run,' but that was enough for the family to know. I have heard father speak of the Flemings, especially uncle Benoni Fleming, and of the Morgans, and Pricketts, and Barns'. Old Dr. Barns was out to Ohio once, and I remember seeing him. He had a cancer on his face, and the bandages become loose, and he stopped at father's and mother fixed them on again. I think he must have been some relation to the Barns' who lived near us in Canaan at that time---William, Nathaniel and James Barns."
Mrs. Anway says: "Mother was born in Berkshire county, Massachusetts, August 18, 1794, and her father moved to Connecticut when she was six months old, and when she was 18 or 19, to Trumbull county, Ohio. The following inscription is on her tombstone:

out in the snow to meet him, and hurrahing, seeing he had leather to make shoes for them. But just at this time, up came a Constable with an execution and levied on the leather. The execution was in favor of a Dr. Witter, who had made one or two trips six miles to attend the family. Father told the Constable his circumstances, and said he thought that the doctor, if he knew his circumstances, would not take the leather, as he was sure the doctor was in no great need of the money. The Constable said he was sorry to be compelled to levy, but he was ordered to levy on anything lie could find, and he must obey the law. So the Constable took the leather in charge and went home. Father, mother and the children had a big cry over their crushed hopes. But when the Constable got home he told some of father's friends (and they were not a few, and were also the best of society); they concluded that the leather should not be sold, but it should be immediately returned with a receipt in full from the doctor. They thereupon formed themselves into a committee of the whole, and waited on the doctor, and told him that he might take his choice of two things, namely: to send the leather back with a receipted bill in full of all demands, (his account being about $8) or they would apply to him a coat of tar and feathers, and ride him out of town on a rail. The doctor foamed and spouted about lynch law, and made all manner of great threats, but all to no purpose; they would hear to nothing but one of the two alternatives. The doctor at length sent the Constable back with the letter and receipt. But this did not quiet the good people of Lodi; they gave the doctor a severe letting alone, and he was soon obliged to remove for want of practice. But father, as soon as he got able, paid the doctor the whole bill, except the costs. Father died at last at my house in Prairieville, Barry county, Michigan, a poor but much respected man."

Up to the opening of the war, he was a practicing physician at Weston, where he was active in speaking and working for the Union cause. Dr. Hall was a prominent physician during the years of his manhood, prior to his affliction, ---having for a period of three years filled the position of assistant physician in the Kirkbridge Insane Asylum, at Philadelphia, Which position he resigned to accept the same position in Longview Asylum, at Cincinnati. His failing health, however, prevented his serving in the latter position, and compelled his resignation. He also at one time served as U. S. Examining Surgeon, at Weston. For the last five years he was a confirmed invalid; for the last two years being entirely unable to assist himself to the necessaries of life. He suffered a great deal during his illness, being in constant pain for the greater part of the last three or four years. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church and of the Odd Fellows' fraternity. He held a membership in the latter organization for twenty years. He died at the residence of his brother, Sylvanus W., of Fairmont, and was buried in the Jones cemetery.

Her health had been declining for several months; but so uncomplainingly and submissively did she bow to the will of God, whose she was, not only by nature, but by grace also, and whom she loved and served, that scarcely any one suspected, much less knew, that death was so rapidly approaching. She was one of those who remembered her Creator in the days of her youth, and obeyed the divine direction: "Acquaint now thyself with Him; and be at peace," and realized the truth of the remaining clause, "thereby good shall come unto thee." Hence, when she was told "the Master calleth unto thee," there was but little to do. Calmly and deliberately she gave direction concerning her funeral, and expressed her desire regarding the loved ones whom God had given her, while patiently and hopefully she awaited the closing hour; her delight was in the religious services and conversation, conducted by her pastor and christian friends, who felt, as they ministered to her, that of a truth "it is better to go to the house of mourning, than to the house of feasting." With faith unwavering, with bright hopes and glorious anticipations, she bade adieu to earth and fell asleep in Jesus, to awake in his perfect likeness. She is buried in the Jones cemetery.
He wast post master at Fairmont for several years, and now keeps a restaurant there. He corresponded with his uncle Nathan for several years, but all the letters were lost in the fire of 1876.

in various capacities with the public affairs of his people. He was secretary of the convention which framed the Constitution of West Virginia, and, subsequently, upon the resignation of William W. Lewis, Esq., became secretary of the Virginia Senate under the re-organized government. Uponthe inauguration of the new State, he was made secretary of the West Virginia Senate, and held the position with great acceptability till the day of his death. In 1864 he was sent as a delegate to the National Convention which re-nominated Mr. Lincoln; and again in 1868, was a delegate-at-large to the convention at Chicago which nominated General Grant. He was chairman of the Republican State Central Committee at the time of his death; and in every position was always equal to the place and occasion. He was possessed of fine literary taste, and talents as a writer of no mean order. He was an elector-at-large, on the ticket which re-elected Lincoln. In the Senate of West Virginia, resolutions of condolence were passed by that body; also by the Bar Association, of Fairmont.
Mr. Hall was, at his death, still a young man, scarcely thirty-five, I think. He left a widow and three children, and a wide circle of relatives and friends. He was a gentleman of more than ordinary intelligence and capabilities; a lawyer by profession and practice; a self-educated man; a genial and companionable associate; faithful alike in his friendships and in his political convictions, being an ardent and inflexible advocate of equal rights for all men. He sustained an unblemished moral character and died in the christian faith, having been a regular worshiper in the Methodist Protestant Church. Peace to his ashes.
1. Carrie Maria, b. October 10, 1860, d. September16, 1875. She was a young lady of great promise--- in the prime of youth, and at an age when she seemed to be more than ever endeared to the widowed heart of an affectionate mother. "Gone in her youthful bloom," she certainly has---gone to that eternal home where there is no age, no time, no suffering, no sorrow, no parting of friends---"where the weary are at rest," and where there is abiding peace, unalloyed. Fold the hands, nevermore to come in contact with life's duties; smooth back the hair from the brow that will no more ache with care; clothe the loved form and lay it away, to await the resurrection, and the life which shall never end; the perfect place which awaits the "spirit of the just made perfect"----the home in "house not made with hands." Remember the 1oved one as a patient sufferer, now released from her weary burden; a faithful disciple, "gone up through soreHall Records (Part Two). 55
tribulation and trial;" a dutiful daughter and sister, whose so great affection for all induced the kindest admonition---probation well spent, now clothed in white robes, washed white in the sacrificial blood of him in whose promises she had faith, and to whose words of entreaty she yielded willing obedience. He who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb will not forget those who mourn, and they shall be comforted.
