Bainbridge HALL

H. W. Beckwith History of Montgomery County, Indiana
(Chicago: HH Hill, 1881) p 381

Bainbridge HALL was a distant relative of Commodore Bainbridge, after whom he was named. He served under Jackson at New Orleans and in the War of 1812. He married Polly NICHOLS. Both were natives of Virginia and in early times went to Kentucky. There the slavery spirit became bitterly odious to Mr. Hall, and he sought a home in Indiana. He made several trips through this section, but was not pleased with the outlook. Finally he moved his family in 1831, and settled on a part of Sec. 16, T. 17, R. 3 W., or what is Brown township, on which he took a lease. In 1834 he entered 80 acres in Sec. 15, and soon added a few acres more. He also entered 400 acres in Walnut township for his children. There, on the Brown township homestead, Mr. and Mrs. Hall lived and experienced all the hardships and privations together with the peculiar pleasures of frontier life. Mr. Hall was very strong in whig principles, and outspoken in favor of tariff. He and wife were members of the Regular Baptist Church. Mr. Hall died September 6, 1855, and was followed fifteen days later by his helpmate of so many years. Their family numbered ten children: Anderson, who died December 14, 1876; Elizabeth and H. H., now of Walnut township; Sarah, now Mrs. Harris, of Nebraska; John R., of Union township; William B., of Clinton, Illinois; Francis, who died at the age of twenty-five years; Benjamin, who died at the age of twenty-three years; Y. P., of Brown township; Samuel Q., of Walnut township, and Mary E., dead.
