Notes for Albert David Hall
His WWI draft registration card, issued in 1917/1918 (the images on Ancestry do not show the side of the card that has the date it was filed), says Albert Hall, age 45, residence Morehead, Ky, born 4 Nov 1872 in Rowan Co., Ky, occupation farmer, self-employed, nearest relative Martha B. Hall.
Phil McBrayer's notes, based mostly on interviews with his father and other relatives, lists four marriages for Albert D. Hall: Millie Prather, Billie McClain, Mary Clinkenbeard, and Rachel Sloan, the latter noted as "Brit Sloan's widow, Jack's mother". Rowan County marriage records list the marriage to Millie Prather, which was apparently very brief. Belle was the mother of all of his children; Albert’s obituary refers to her as “Martha McClain”, and also mentions Rachel Sloan. I’ve found no official record of Mary Clinkenbeard (other than the 1930 census), nor have I found a date for the marriage to Rachel Fultz Sloan. It may have been in Elliott Co.
His obituary in the Rowan County News of Thursday, July 31, 1958, read “Albert Hall, Native Citizen, Dies at Age 87 - Funeral services for a pioneer Rowan County citizen, Albert Hall, were conducted at 11 o’clock Monday morning at Lane Funeral Home with interment in Lee Cemetery. Mr. Hall, 87 years of age, lived his entire life in the county. He was born near Morehead Nov. 4, 1870, son of the late George and Susan Hall. He had hundreds of close and distant relatives living in Rowan County.
Mr. Hall married Martha McClain, who passed away in 1922. They were the parents of the following six surviving children: Leslie Hall, Parkersburg, W. Va.; Mrs. Emma McKinney, Bangor; Mrs. Susanna McGuire, Manito, Okla.; Harry Hall, Dayton, O.; Mrs. Carrie Royse, Urbana, O.; and Mrs. Hannah Royse, Morehead. After the death of his first wife, he married Rachael Sloan, who survives. Other immediate survivors are 20 grandchildren.
Mr. Hall was a member of the Christian Church. Funeral services were conducted by Reverends Luther Bradley and Ted Greene.”
Notes for Rachel Fultz
The Kentucky death index lists Rachel S. Hall, died 7 Jan 1973 in Rowan Co., KY, age 78, death certificate #34216, Vol. 69. (I'm not putting an S as her middle initial because it may stand for Sloan.)
