71. Deepest holes, deadest dead ends, most impenetrable brick walls
My mother's Halls (her maiden name), showed up in Hall Co GA ca 1839, came from somewhere in SC, no idea where though possibly (one percent possibility?) from Marlboro Co, though Marlboro SC to Hall Co GA isn't an expected route. Illiterate so no Bible records, no money so no will, shoemakers so no land and therefore no deeds, Baptist so no church records. The earliest family member, according to the 1850 census, was a William Hall, born ca 1753 in NC, says he was a RevSol but no record, no pension.

My father's PA Dutch are pretty much nailed down, still looking for ancestry of husband's Peter Warner, born ca 1824 Prussia, farmer in Carroll Co MD 1850, later a Lutheran minister in York Co PA, don't know if he immigrated alone or with parents.

Double sigh.
