William H. Hall was born in Delaware County, Ohio, Oct. 22, 1824, a son of William and Polly Hall, natives of Hartford County, Conn.  They were married in Ohio, where the latter died in Delaware County.  The father died in Hillsdale County, Mich., having settled there in 1858.  Our subject was reared on a farm in his native county, and in 1850 came to this township and bought a farm of 110 acres in section 4 where he remained some years.  He then sold that property and purchased the home he now occupies in the same section.  He has a fine farm of 104 acres, most of which is under cultivation.  He was married Oct. 4, 1848, to Nancy, daughter of Dr. D. P. and Elizabeth Hathaway.  They have one daughter, Elizabeth, who was born April 24, 1856, and was married May 10, 1877, to William W. Uhl, who was born in Holmes County, Ohio, Aug. 28, 1850.  They reside with Mr. and Mrs. Hall, Mr. Uhl owning a farm of ninety-seven acres adjoining the farm of Mr. Hall.  He and his family are members of the Methodist church, and are much respected by all who know them.  Mr. Hall is a member of Fremont Lodge, No. 248, A.
