Also, have you checked the Gazette Index on line?
I couldn't find anything for Justus or Diantha. Perhaps they have not transcribed back that far. You can contact the Sterling Library Genealogy Dept. to check the newspaper microfilm for those death dates.

Hi Chert,

I have a Justice HALL in my "tree" who had 3 daughters, Martha Jane, Bell and Carrie. Martha Jane married William Edwin BREED on March 6, 1889 and Bell marred Albert WRIGHT (date unknown). Martha died in 1949 and is buried in the Tampico cemetery.

Is "my" Justice HALL the son of the Justice HALL, Sr you have posted above?

Justis HALL with the 3 daughters (Martha Jane, Bell and Carrie) is the grandson of Justice HALL who was married to Diantha BURCH by Justice and Diantha's son Norman HALL.

Justice HALL's headstone can be seen on www.findagrave.com, memorial #89015930. He was born June 19, 1783 and died May 22, 1872.

Diantha BURCH's headstone can be seen on www.findagrave.com, Memorial #89016725. She was born on January 20, 1786 and died November 20, 1859.

I have their children as
1) Norman HALL b. 5 May 1807 VT, d. 9 July 1874 Bureau Co, IL, m. 20 June 1830 Washington Co, OH to Elizabeth Bell,
2) Justice HALL, Jr. b. abt 1811 NY, m. Electa,
3) Samantha HALL b. 1825 OH, m. Mr. HUNT.

The www.findagrave.com sites list other children... I have not done a lot of research on the HALL families.

Diantha BURCH's father's name is Edy BURCH... I remember reading that he was a Revolutionary War hero.

Justice HALL's dau. Bell married Albert WRIGHT. Albert is the brother of my great-grandfather, Thomas Addison WRIGHT.
