    Notes 
    • Mash Hall was born in Tennessee circa 1830. His given name, Mashack, is probably biblical: From Daniel 1:7 "The chief official gave them new names: to Daniel, the name Belteshazzar; to Hananiah, Shadrach; to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abednego." (NIV)

      He and Eliza married sometime prior to 1851, when he was 19 and she 17. Their son Robert was born in Missouri circa 1851. Their next several children were also born in Missouri, the last one who was born in that state being Mary Ella who was born between 1856 and 1858. The Hall's relocated to Texas sometime before the 1860 Census.

      Mash was a member of the C.S.A. during the Civil War. On July 31, 1862, the third company from East Collin County, Texas was organized. John K. Bumpass was elected captain.

      According to an article (courtesy of Jeanne Darnell) from The Farmersville Times, dated August 19, 1903, and published in the COLLIN CHRONICLES (Vol. IX, No. 1, Fall 1988):  "The company contained about 100 men, all matured which was very different to the two first. This company joined Martin's battalion which was afterwards organized into a regiment known as the 5th Texas Partisan Rangers. Gen. Albert Pike was its first division commander and later Gen. Sam Bell Maxey succeeded him. After the organization of the company it went to Shelly Springs in this county thence to Ft. Washita, Chicisaw (sic) Nation. Remained there some six weeks guarding Indians and disaffected whites. Their next destination was Skin Bayou, 20 miles north of Ft. Smith, in Cherokee Nation, but their headquarters were Sulleyville, Arkansas. Retired before the Federals to Cole Creek not far from where South McAlester now stands. In February, 1863 they reached here and camped on a high hill. The weather made one of its radical changes, the wind coming from the north and the snow falling to the depth of one foot. This caught the army without horse feed entirely and no rations for the soldiers except very coarse corn meal and very little bacon. Half of the horses died in a very short time, the commissary department losing 60 fine mules in one night. To stay there was next to impossible and they dropped down to Terrapin Creek, Choctaw Nation. At this place the battalion underwent the change into a regiment. The horses and mules were sent to Texas for the winter and the regiment remained there...(a number being granted a furlough who remained through the spring at home)...

      At the coming of summer, camp was broken and the march was kept up till the neighborhood of Ft. Gibson was reached around which they rendezvoused till the battle of Cabin Creek in 1863. A small number of Confederates drove back about four times their number but the streams, which were swollen, ran down and they had to give back. In doing  this James Hendrex was left behind. He had been shot in the thigh and could not escape but hid away from the Indians by lying in the water something like a week and probably would have died there had word not been sent in to the Federals at Ft. Gibson under flag of truce that he was wounded....and unable to care for him(self). The Union soldiers sent out and got him at once. The Federal physician took him to his home in Ft. Gibson and kept him until death relieved his suffering. Willam Candler, brother of Arch Candler was killed and MASH HALL who lives on Cowskin (Creek) was shot through the thigh...."

      Other Hall families listed were: Caleb Hall,  a 21 year old farm laborer born in Missouri; Oliver Hall, age 40, school teacher born in North Carolina; and Jesse Hall, a 32 yr old married farmer from Tennessee. The relationship, if any, of these Hall's to Mash and his family is unknown.

      The Hall's were still living in Collin Count at the time of the 1880 Federal Census.
      Son Robert lived next door, in household #34-38. Daughter Mary Ella Hall was living with her husband, Ralph B STRONG in Collin County in Enumeration District 28, Family 363.

      Mash and his wife died sometime prior to 1907, as at this time a deed disposing of their land by their heirs was filed in Collin County. Charles Strong located this deed when he visited the Collin County courthouse. It was recorded in V 145, page 501-510. Page 509 was inadvertently not copied.

      The actual deed from the heirs of Mash and Eliza J Hall to H.S. Carver is recorded in V145, pages 501-502. The notarized statements verifying the acknowledgement of this deed by each of its signatories follow on pages 503 though 507. Page 508 was inadvertently not copied, but pages 509 and 510 were. It appears that a related deed acknowledging the sale of land by the Hall heirs to H.S. Carver began on page 508, continuing through page 509. This deed was signed by L.E. Bumpass as guardian of "C____(?) Hall and others." A notarized state acknowledging his signature in Collin County on the 23rd of July 1907 is included.

      Immediately below this, beginning on page 509 and concluding on page 510, is a deed signed by R.B. Strong, Guardian of "Burton R. Strong, Claud E. Strong, Raleigh J. Strong, Earl E. Strong, and Earnest R. Strong" also to H. S. Carver and dated 6 August 1907. Ralph's signature is also notarized, but the Territory and County in which it was notarized is too faint to read. It was likely notarized in the Territory of New Mexico, Roosevelt County (where additional documents related to this transaction were notarized. These additional records can be found in the records of Collin County, Texas Vol A-3, pages 656-666).
