Berkley County in 1925. His name is Arthur Wilson son of Florence Banks
Wilson Bell b.18 Aug 1897 Shepherdstown WV d. 22 Oct 1954 Atlanta GA buried
in Elmwood Cem, Shepherdstown. All we know of the father of Arthur is what
is listed on his birth record. Benjamin Hartzell is the name. We have
some grave yard inscriptions of various Benjamin's and others, but this
tells us nothing.
We do not know where the Banks came from in Florence's name. We know
nothing of the Wilson's. It was family knowledge that Florence's parents
disowned her because of the birth out of wedlock.

The Biographical & Portrait Cyclopedia of Fayette Co PA by Samuel T.
Wiley, 1889, says in a biography of Daniel DOWNER, son of Levi DOWNER and
Elizabeth HALL that "her father, Hugh HALL, was a native of Berkeley
Springs, Virginia." This may refer to what is now Berkeley Springs
(Morgan Co) WVA.
A family genealogy indicates that on 21 April 1789, Hugh Henderson HALL
married Nancy BUTLER, daughter of Capt. Joseph BUTLER and Rachel TRIPLETT
presumably of Loudoun Co VA. Seek documentation/proof of this marriage.
Hugh Henderson HALL was the son of John HALL, whose will dated 9 Sept
1791 was recorded in Fayette Co PA Will Book No. 1, Page 65. The will
names wife, Elizabeth; sons Hugh and Thomas; daughters Margaret,
Elizabeth, Rose and Sarah Boyle; and a grandaughter Nancy, daughter of
son Thomas. A family genealogy says that the mother of Hugh Henderson
HALL was Catherine HENDERSON. The will advances the possibility that
Elizabeth was the second wife of John HALL, father of Hugh HALL. Seek
documentation as to marriages of John HALL and proof of mother of Hugh
The HALL family lived in Union Twp, Fayette Co PA beginning about 1785.
Hugh Hall moved his family from Fayette Co PA to Butler Co OH (Fairfield
Twp) in 1811.
