PROBATE FILE GEORGE HALL-LINCOLN COUNTY

Lincoln County Achieves has the probate file on George Hall. There are many pages to his inventory pages; it appears he was well off. The final distribution and accounting was not made until Sept 1874 (12 years after George Hall died) by which time Elizabeth and Stephen Flynt had died, which meant that Emily Flynt (now Alexander) and Richard Milton Flynt became beneficiaries in place of their mother.

 

Of special interest to us is a receipt for an early distribution to E M Flynt (Elizabeth M Hall, daughter of George Hall) for seven hundred dollars on 10 March 1866 to buy a house from B W Rives in the town of Huntersville (now North Little Rock) Pulaski, Tennessee. I will send a copy shortly. 

HALL’S CEMETERY

According to the Will of George Hall, who died in 1862, an acre of land including the family grave (yard) is to be set aside and not sold and is to be used as a family burial ground; he wished the graveyard to be neatly enclosed and a plain neat slab placed over his grave and also over his wife’s grave. Thus, it appears Harriett Hall is also buried in Hall cemetery, although she is not listed as such.

 

Hall’s cemetery is about halfway between Petersburg and Fayetteville & is behind a barbed wire fence on someone’s farm land. I have been by several times, and I have taken photos from the road.  I got the name of the property owner from property tax records and wrote for permission to enter the property. The Find a Grave contributor who took photos in 2015 of the cemetery in 2015 has about 25 additional photos posted to this web site, below.

Notice how recent the gravestones appear of the 2 little Flynt boys. These boys died as children. Each of their gravestones states that John R and George R is the son of S.C. and E.M. Flynt. There are more people buried there, but the names cannot be read. George Hall’s Will says a plain slab is to be placed over his grave and the grave of his wife.
