[KY] THE HALLS OF KENTUCKY

I AM STILL LOOKING FOR "THE HALLS OF KENTUCKY."

MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDFATHER, LEWIS HALL, WAS BORN IN 1829 IN MARYLAND. HE SERVED IN THE CIVIL WAR FOR THE CONFEDERACY IN "COMPANY D, KENTUCKY COLORED TROOPS".

LEWIS MOVED TO KENTUCKY, WHERE HE MET AND MARRIED EMELINE BUR (OR BURRIL)OF BOURBON COUNTY. THEY WERE MARRIED ON NOVEMBER 13, 1866 AND THIS MARRIAGE IS RECORDED IN THE "BOOK OF MARRIAGE BONDS, COLORED, 1866-1873, ON PAGE 34" IN FAYETTE COUNTY, KY.

EMELINE WAS BORN IN 1852 IN BOURBON COUNTY. THEY HAD EIGHT CHILDREN:

-JULIA (2/26/1870, MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER)
-HENRY
-AMANDA ("MANDY" AND WAS RELATED TO "SIS" AND ALBERT ALLEN (NOW DECEASED) FROM LOS ANGELES, CA)
-HENRIETTA (B.1877. FROM 1903-1906 SHE LIVED AT 34 GARFIELD IN DETROIT, MI.
-LOUIS
-JOHN
-THOMAS BUHL
-ROBERT

JULIA, MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER, WAS BORN ONE-FOURTH MILE OF MUIR STATION, IN FAYETTE COUNTY - AND SHE WAS BAPTIZED IN THE METHODIST CHURCH IN LEXINGTON. SHE MARRIED REUBEN WILLIAMS OF COLUMBUS, OHIO ON NOVEMBER 15, 1884 IN LEXINGTON. THEY HAD TWO CHILDREN (ONE BEING MY GRANDMOTHER, EMMA WILLIAMS (LEWIS).

LEWIS HALL DIED IN 1892 IN FAYETTE COUNTY. AFTER HIS DEATH, EMELINE MARRIED WALKER WOODFORD.

BY 1903 BOTH EMELINE, JULIA, AND EMMA MOVED TO 67 GARFIELD IN DETROIT, MI. AFTER EMMA'S MARRIAGE IN 1909, AND MOVING TO THE HOME OF HER HUSBAND (WHO LIVED IN SALEM, MICHIGAN) EMELINE AND JULIA MOVED THERE ALSO. EMELINE (BURL/BURRILL-HALL)WOODFORD DIED MAY 25, 1925 IN SALEM AND WAS BURIED AT A NEARBY CEMETERY. IN 1926, HER DAUGHTER, HENRIETTA HALL SMITH DIED AND WAS BURIED BY HER MOTHER.

I NEVER FOUND ANY INFORMATION ABOUT REUBEN WILLIAMS. HE WAS KEPT QUITE SECRET IN MY FAMILY. JULIA (HALL) WILLIAMS DIED MAY 18, 1945 AND WAS BURIED ALONGSIDE HER MOTHER AND SISTER.

ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE "HALL'S OF KENTUCKY" WILL BE VERY WELCOMED.

IN 1936, THOMAS BUHL HALL LIVED IN LEXINGTON AT 549 SMITH ST.
