Names and Page # Index


WILLIAM W. HALL, only surviving son of Benjamin and Sarah (CARLILE) HALL, was born in the village of Buckingham where his father and uncle Moses were at the time engaged in Mercantile business, November 2, 1851.  His parents removing to the present homestead in 1854, he was reared on the farm upon which he still resides and was educated in the schools of Plumstead township.   At the age of thirteen years, during the civil war, he and four companions went to Philadelphia and offered their services in the Union Army.  It is needless to say that their services were declined on account of their age.  He returned home and entered the store at Buckingham as a clerk, remaining as such for eight years, and then returned to the farm.  In politics Mr. HALL is a Republican and has taken an active interest in the councils of his party.  He has held a number of local positions, and has been a justice of the peace since 1888.  He has served as delegate to state and congressional conventions and as a member of the county committee.  He is an active member of the Independent Order of Red Men, and has served as representative grand chief for five terms to the grand council of the order.  He is also a past chief of the Knights of the Golden Eagle.  Mr. HALL married, October 26, 1880, Anna FRY, daughter of Michael FRY, of Plumstead, and they are the parents of ten children: Chester Arthur: Roscoe C.; Nellie B., deceased; Warren Russell; Florence Ethel; Norman D.; Althea Fry; Eleanor E., deceased; and Sarah Esther, and Emma Pauline Hall.
