Some researchers (especially DAR lineage books) have confused this Thomas Hall of Prince William County, Virginia with Thomas Hall of Augusta County, Virginia, son of Edward Hall and Eleanor Stuart. Although the research continues, a thorough comparison of available records at this time, does NOT support a relationship between the two individuals.

Thomas Hall: Revolutionary War Pension Application

State of Kentucky and County of Montgomery
On this 7th day of Jan. 1833, personally appeared in open court, being a court of record, before Clement Conner, James Means and Lewis Ford, justices of, and constituting the Court of Montgomery Co. in the State of Ky., now sitting, Thomas Hall, a resident of said Montgomery Co. & state of Ky., and seventy three years, who being first duly sworn, according to law, doth, on his oath, make the following declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the act of Congress passed June 7, 1832. That he enlisted in the army of the United States at Boonesborough, Lincoln Co. in the State of Virginia (now Ky.) in the year 1779, for the term of during the War, with Capt. John Holder, and served in the regiments of the Virginia line, under the following named officers, --- That he resided in the County of Lincoln and State of Virginia, when he entered the service, under Capt. John Holder, - Col. Boone and Logan and Gen. Clark, in the year 1779 about the last of March of that year was stationed sometime at Boonesborough, and was marched to the lower Blue Licks against the Indians, under Col. Logan; but the enemy fled, and we were then marched across the country to Salt River, where the Indians had burnt Kincheloe's Fort and were murdering the frontier inhabitants, but we soon dispersed them after our arrival, we were then marched to Strodes Station, to guard that Fort. After being stationed at that point for for some months, we were marched to Boonesborough; and from there to the upper Blue Licks, under command of Maj. Hoy (?) where we had a pretty severe engagement with the Indians from there we were marched back to Boonesborough, where we were stationed principally until the the termination of the War, engaged, however, during the whole period in occassional and frequent scouting along the frontier settlements. In fact our whole service partook a good deal of the nature of a frontier guard. After the termination of the Revolutionary War, I was regularly discharged at Boonesborough and received a discharge given, to the best of my recollection, by Gen. Clark, but which is now lost. States that he was born in the year 1759 in the county of Prince William and State of Virginia, and is at present a resident of Ky. in the county of Montgomery. He states that he is infirm and in very needy circumstances; and although he cannot now recollect the precise dates at which he was stationed at the different points, or the commander of the regiment to which he was attached, he is certain that he rendered the service as stated in his declaration; and in the evening of his life, appeals to the government of that county whose independence he contributed to establish for such compensation as the justices of his claim may entitle him to receive. He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or an annuity except the present, and he declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any agency in any state. He refers to the Hon. H. Daniel, his representative in congress for his situation and character.
Sworn to and subscribed in open court this 7th day of January 1833
Recorded by David Boyd, Clerk
Bk. E. Vol. 7, Page 12

    "Association of the Settlers of Boonesborough in 1779 for making a crop of corn"

    Urged by their necessities and encouraged by a prospect of at least temporary immunity from invasion, the settlers about Boonesborough made unusual efforts to clear and cultivate the land, devoting by far the greatest part to corn. The crops, as often before, were in many cases made by companies organized for the purpose. A contract was signed, directors elected and the members appeared every morning at the sound of a conch or beat of a drum, some to work in the field and others to guard those who did work. A member failing to comply with the contract forfeited his claim to the crop. A list of the members of one of these companies is preserved. ...

    Statement of Thomas Hall.
    I, Thomas Hall of Montgomery County and State of Kentucky hereby state that I am the same Thomas Hall who has obtained a pension under the Act of June 7 1832 and that I am now seventy five years of age – that I am the brother of Edward Hall who now lives in Clarke County Kentucky and I know that he served two years and upwards as a soldier of the Revolutionary War in the Virginia State Troops and wasattached to Capt John Holder’s company. I was present when he was enlisted by said Holder as a private
    in his Company and I was enlisted at the same time, which was in the spring of the year 1779 and I remember that he served from the time of his enlistment to the close of the Revolutionary War, when he and I were both at the same time discharged by said Capt Holder at Boonsborough, in what is now called Madison County in this State. Said Edward was enlisted at Boonsborough and there I saw him sworn in as a soldier. He served in the different garrisons, in Kentucky, and from time to time went out on
    scouting parties – and he is older than I am.

    Edward Hall, 400, about 4 miles from head of Hinkstons Fork about SEW; settled May 1779.

    Nicholas George, 400, by George Madden, each side of small branch of Licking, about 2 miles W of Edward Hall’s land; settled May 1779.

    [cos1776 20130715 note: I am not sure what to make of this record yet... It is impossible to know if the Wm. Hall, deceased is the brother to Edward and Thomas, but it appears that it might be. If that is the case, then he arrived at Boonesborough first, settling in Jan 1799 and dying before the land court was held in Dec of that same year. (This goes against the current theory that he died later in 1782/3, so proceed with caution.) I do not think that John Hall is a relation - notice he settled in 1775, four years before Thomas Hall and brothers arrived. He is presented here for context.]
