Happy 339th Grandfather Hall!

In Taunton, Massachusetts, on 25 January 1681, my 7th great grandfather, George Hall, was born to Samuel and Elizabeth White Hall.  Today marks the 300th anniversary of his Jack Benny birthday (older readers will understand).  Grandfather married Lydia Dean and the two had at least one daughter, my 6th great grandmother, Lydia Hall.  Lydia married Thomas Morey and their daughter, Mehitable, married Nathaniel White, Jr.

Now, why did I take you on this pedigree journey?  Because, one year ago today, I wrote about Nathaniel and Mehitable’s daughter, Prudence White Jenks, my 4th great grandmother who shares this birthdate with her ancestor.  Prudence and her husband, Laban Jenks, brought the Jenks branch of my ancestors to Oakland County, Michigan in 1820 and settled in the Bloomfield area.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
