Notes on Parents of Edward Hall
- The parents of Edward Hall are UNPROVEN at this time.
- Clue 1: According to the 1833 Deposition of Proctor and Horn,10 Edward Hall was given a furlough in the Fall of 1779 to return to Virginia and bring his father's family to Kentucky which he did. His father was not named and no further information was given about the family at that time.
- Clue 2: Some researchers claim that the parents of Edward Hall are William/Willis/Willie Hall and Elizabeth Halbert - needs proof!
