    Notes 
    • 8 Sep 1984

      Hall worked at the Kitselman Wire Mill in Muncie, Indiana as a laborer. He was affliiated in some manner with the Christian Church.

      During the early years of Hall and Martha's marriage they lived in Muncie and in Progress, in Delaware Co., Indiana. Later they moved to Knightstown and their childreren graduated from high school there.

      Hall's daughter, my mother, Zella, has told me of Hall making home-made candies, apparently to sell. The children of that family were raised in a strict Baptist home, but Hall was a drinker. He also very definitely was 'head of the household', meting out harsh punishments upon occasion.

      Only one brother, Will, was ever mentioned of Hall's immediate family according to my mother except for the children of his first marriage. At least one of those children became a minister.

      Stanley Wilkerson of Knightstown claimed relationship to this line according to my mother.

      Wash Wilkerson played on the Grand Ole Opry on radio and Hall Jackson said he was related to him.

      A woman named Maggie came to visit Hall Jackson at some point and my mother said she was some relative of her father.

      Hattie Wilkerson was also a name mentioned by my mother as a relative.
    • In the 1900 census, Hall's 1st wife says she has had 6 children with only 4 still living. They married ca 1881 and had John 1881, Rufus 1883, and then a 6 year gap before Charles in 1889 and finally Jane in 1891.
      -----------------------
      In a letter from Goldie Childress to Elmer Wilkerson, her half-brother, Goldie lists the children of Hall Jackson Wilkerson as given to her by her mother, Martha Florentha Childress. They are:

      John Wilkerson
      Rufus Hall Wilkerson
      Larie Jane Sharp
      Charles Wilkerson
      Elmer Wilkerson
      Zella B. Richison
      Ethel Smanthy Rozzell
      Everett Elisha Wilkerson

      She also gives Hall Jackson's birth as Dec. 26th 1861 while most other sources so far say 1860.

    Notes 
    • 8 Sep 1984
      When Hall md Martha married, he was 43 or 44 and she was 24. She had given birth to an illegimate daughter about 6 months before they married, but family tradition says the child was not Hall's. At the time of this second marriage for Hall, his bride was only 9 months older than his oldest son. Hall oldest son had already been married for a year or two, and his next oldest got married just 6 days before Hall and Martha.
