fever [Son of Nancy Johnson and
Enoch Hall, husband of Harriet Jane Bramlett, born 28 Dec 1833, died
17 Jul 1912,
buried Few's Chapel Cem, Greer, S.C.]. "Grandma [Harriet Jane (Bramlett) Hall] was a loyal and faithful wife, besides being
very brave. Grandpa [William Wesley Hall] went away to be in the Civil War, but he may not have had an opportunity to serve
long because he contracted typhoid fever soon and was ill for some time. I do not know exactly where they were living in North
where he was when he became ill. Grandma was an excellent horsewoman, and I was told that she rode horseback
'many miles' to where Grandpa was and nursed him through his illness. In those days women wore long, full skirts, therefore
they always rode side-saddle. It was not unusual for women to go to their husbands when they were ill or wounded.
An example of Grandma's resourcefulness was during the Civil War when Grandpa was away and Sherman's army was coming
through the South. She took the horses into the woods and tied them to trees so they would not be found by the
Union Army, because they were taking horses along their way." --Clara S. Eldridge in Hall Memories.http://220.127.116.11/search?q=cache:pA6UNSg7sPoJ:www.ehcweb.ehc.edu/emory/confederate.htm+%22thomas+legion%22&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=59Record of Confederate Dead - Emory Cemetary

Volume XVI of North Carolina Troops: A Roster contains the
history and roster of the most unusual North Carolina Confederate Civil War unit, significant because of the large number
of Cherokee Indians who served in its ranks. Thomas's Legion was the creation of William Holland Thomas, an influential businessman,
state legislator, and Cherokee chief. He initially raised a small battalion of Cherokees in April 1862, and gradually
expanded his command with companies of white soldiers raised in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee, and Virginia. By
the end of 1862, Thomas's Legion comprised an infantry regiment and a battalion of infantry and cavalry. An artillery battery
was added in April 1863. Furthermore, in General Early's Army of the Valley, the Thomas Legion was well-known for its fighting
prowess. It is also known for its pivotal role in the last Civil War battle east
of the Mississippi River. The Thomas Legion mustered more than 2,500 soldiers and it closely resembled a brigade. With troop roster, muster records, and Compiled Military Service Records (CMSR) this volume is
also a must have for anyone interested in genealogy and researching Civil War ancestors. Simply stated, it is an outstanding
source for genealogists.
