Fourth Generation

Richard John Hall (Farnham, Benjamin, Joseph, Richard)
RJ Hall and Mary Caroline

Richard John Hall (Farnham, Benjamin, Joseph, Richard) born September 14, 1800 in Metheun, Essex, Massachusetts and died March 18, 1891 in Eau Claire, Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Picture is of his second wife Mary “Caroline”.

John was married September 3, 1822 probably in New York to Abigail Bentley. Abigail was born July 21, 1801 in Someset, Somerset, Pennsylvania and died September 3, 1838 in Ellington, Chautaqua, New York. John and Abigail had the following children:

John D Hall (Richard, Benjamin, Joseph, Richard)

John was born July 12, 1822 in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York, died December 2, 1896 in Chippewa County, Wisconsin. He married Melissa Arnold (probably New York) who was born June 21, 1828 in Maine and died January 24, 1884.

Their children:

  • Eliphlat Ingolls Hall born July 13, 1848 in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York, died June 9, 1927 Lewis County, Washington. Married first in 1874 to Alice May Page (1854-?) and had one daughter: Florence Bell Hall (1893-1972). Married second in 1872 in New Jersey to Clara Belle Geer (1868-1922) and had two children: Edgar and Norman Cecil.
  • Josephine Rebecca Hall (aka Rebecca Josephine) (John, Richard, Benjamin, Joseph, Richard) married Charles E. Bailey.
  • Mary Hall born May 27, 1853 in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York and died about 1946 in Duluth, St. Louis, Minnesota. She married January 4, 1875 in Sparta, Monroe, Wisconsin to James Roderick Perkins and had seven children: John, Roderick, Maude, Willard, Norman, Abbie, and Harry.
  • Lennie Maria Hall born about 1864 in Wisconsin, died February 26, 1955 in Bellingham, Whatcom, Washington, married 1893 Burt Clarence Smith (1865-1935) and had three children: Asa, Lottie, and Florence.
Melissa Arnold Information

Melissa Arnold Hall is shown in the 1880 U.S. Federal Census as 60 years old and living with Charles E. and Rebecca Bailey. She shows herself and her parents as all being born in Maine.

It is odd that there was no death certificate for Melissa Arnold in Eau Claire County, although they may have lived across the river in Chippewa county. Since they were living in Wells, Monroe, Wisconsin in 1880, it’s possible she died there. However, she is buried in Augusta, Eau Claire County, Wisconsin. There is a probate record for a Melissa Hall who died May 29, 1882. The probate records are from 1883-1889 in Koshkonong, Jefferson, Wisconsin. It states that she lived in Fort Atkinson, Jefferson, Wisconsin. Chauncey Converse was the executor and he was also an inheritor as well as her sister, Mrs. Jane Peirce and a Charles D. Handy. This makes no sense to me as you would think that she would leave money to her immediate family.

Rebecca Ann Hall

Rebecca born November 28, 1825 in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York, died April 28, 1885 in Sparta, Monroe, Wisconsin. She married about 1844 to Amos Jacob Hollenbeck (1824-1864). Their children:

  • Frances R. Hollenbeck 1844-1921
  • Henry Dewitt Hollenbeck born 1847 in New York, died October 14, 1923
  • Fidella Hollenbeck May 20, 1850 in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York, died after 1930 in Viroqua, Vernon, Wisconsin.
  • Marinda Hollenbeck 1853 in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York, died January 2, 1922 in Hennepin County, Minnesota.
  • Jeffrey F. Hollenbeck born March 31, 1857 in Ellington, Chautauqua, New York, died December 7, 1933 in Sparta, Monroe, Wisconsin.
  • Lilly J. Hollenbeck 1859-?
