I am undertaking this effort in order to share what I have learned with my family. Unfortunately no one in the immediate circle of cousins has had the opportunity or the desire to do so. I kind of got stuck with the task. It has been a very interesting experience.
The Hall side of my family was quite easy because some of my more distant cousins saw fit to carry on the Hall family tradition of recording our history. The other branches of my family were not as inclined to keep track of what has transpired over the generations. It seems most of those ancestors had to be drug kicking and screaming from their hiding places.
One thing in particular that has intrigued me has been the apparent migration patterns. We will assume naturally that the flow was from the East to the West, but it seems most of my branches followed the same trails! It seems most all started in Virginia, spread into Tennessee and then into Texas. Not only Texas as a whole, but they seem to have chosen particular regions to settle in.
It may just be one of those mysteries that only time will flush out. That is what this geneaology thing is all about. Trying to unravel these mysteries and maintain a certain semblance of sanity while abusing your ability to funtion within polite society. Sometimes, along the way we genealogists lose sight of the fact this should be a hobby rather than an obsession. I would like to thank my family for being so patient with me, and I would like to thank all those that have helped me with information and advice. I hope that this information may in turn help others. Feel free to use whatever you can. That is why I put it here.
