Simeon Hall1

b. 1797, d. 1 November 1858
     Stratton, page 295, notes that "Regarding the death date of BETSEY COCHRAN, no record has been found, but we find a Billing dated 27 Oct 1837 -- 'Mrs. BETSEY HALL'S coffin --$30.00'".

Donna H. Larose visited the South Cemetery located near the ILM Historical society in May of 1998. She copied down the name of "Martha", assuming that she was the wife of Simeon (noting that there were no dates given, or she somehow neglected to write them down).

However, Stratton does not mention any additional marriage to a "Martha", only the marriage to "Betsey Cochran". Additionally, Stratton does not list a child fo Simeon by the name of "Martha".

Donna thinks further research and another trip to the cemetery are warranted to determine exactly who simeon's wives were. Simeon Hall was born in 1797 at Isle La Motte, Grand Isle Co., VT. He was the son of Elihu Hall and Roxanna Holcombe. Simeon Hall died on 1 November 1858 at Isle La Motte, Grand Isle Co., VT.

It has been suggested that Caleb was instead the son of Caleb (Joshua II) and Elizabeth.

Caleb served as a private in the American Revolutin in the Co. of Capt. Hezekiah Holcomb; arrived in NY August 26, discharged Sept 8, 1776. He was a taxpayer at E. Granby in 1785, moved to Hunter, Green Co., NY, later to Hartsgrove, Dist. #8, Ashtabula Co., OH.

McPherson states that Caleb died in 1810.

Michael Holcombe reports that Caleb may not have died in 1810, that being the year he left Connecticut. Caleb and Merch are recorded in Windsor, Ohio census lists through 1840, where they were over eighty years old. Windsor Mills Cemetery gravestone inscriptions indicate Mercy died November 4, age 88 years and Caleb died December 4, with age stated as 92. If his birth date is correct, Caleb would have been 90.4
