Cape Girardeau County MO query: Looking for descendants of
Benjamin HALL (and wife Rebecca)who operated ferry across
Mississippi to upper Union Co. IL. until early 1820s. He may be
the Benjamin HALL who died on the river about 1825. He may have
had a daughter, Eliza Ann HALL who married Orrin GALLUP in Owen
Co., IN in 1837 as a minor with guardian permission, guardian
unnamed. This connection has eluded me for years. Eliza Ann's
mother was said to be from the BARRINGER family which is found
across the river in Union Co. IL.
Cape Girardeau Co query - families HALL & BARRINGER. I
have reviewed various census data, but it was not adequate for
my problem. My ancestor, Eliza Ann Hall GALLUP, married in Owen
County, IN in 1837. Her maiden name was HALL, and Eliza's mother
was claimed to be Mary BOURINDGOIR by a notoriously poor speller
in our family. Although Eliza claimed to be born in Grove, KY,
I've never found any trace of her there. On the other hand, the
names HALL and BARRINGER turn up in Union Co. IL with a Benjamin
HALL described in the Union Co. history as "dying on the
river" about 1825. This was convenient since Eliza's
permission to marry as a minor was granted by an unnamed
guardian, not her father. In fact, I find Halls and BARRINGERS
in the same block on Market Street in early Jonesboro, IL. I
also located them possibly in the same Baptist Church in the
northwest part of the county. The connection to Cape Girardeau
is from the fact that the Hall family lived there probably by
1820 and operated a ferry across the Mississippi. I am very
interested in determining if Eliza Ann HALL GALLUP was a member
of that Hall family and in what way.
