The info above (and some below) is from the book John James Hall, His Descendants, and Other Halls from Alabama by Margarette HALL Wood. She says Jere and Malissa HALL were siblings who married siblings Elizabeth and Robert HALL.

John James "Jim" HALL, b. abt. 1844 in Ala., was my g-gf. His parents are unknown. He was "found on the side of the road" as a baby and raised by John J. "Bud" ROBINSON/ ROBERTSON and his wife on a farm near Sepulga in Conecuh Co., Ala.. Supposedly, Jim HALL was actually related to the Halls above, but exactly how is unknown, a great mystery I would love to solve. Jim HALL (married to Sarah "Sallie" Angeline BROOKS) had a son named Gabe HALL who died as a result of a blow to the head by a club carried by Maggie HALL's husband, Willie MOXLEY, Georgiana's town marshall in 1912. Jim and Gabe HALL and several others in this side of my family are buried at SELLERS Cemetery, including Sarah Brooks "Sallie" HALL STUART LEDLOW (dau. of Jim HALL), who first married John N. Stuart, brother of Nola Stuart above. I'm seeing strong ties between the families BROOKS, SELLERS, HALL, GRIFFIN, STUART, and BEESLEY/BEASLEY. I have no idea how John ROBINSON/ROBERTSON ties in. Another mystery.

I am the granddaughter of James Henry Griffin and Sarah Ann Penola Stuart, known as Jim and Nola. My g-gf was Jeremiah M, Griffin he was married to Melissa Elizabeth Hall. Yes, her brother Robert Hall married Malissa Griffin. I know that Jerry and Malissa's parents were John C. Griffin and Delilah Henry. I know very little about the Griffins or the Halls but interested in learning all I can. Where can you obtain the book John James Hall, His Descendants and Other Halls from Al. by Margarette Hall Wood. I have some info on the Stuarts.

I would also be interested in the book "John James Hall". If anyone knows where I may obtain it, please notify me.
I'm researching the Wilkerson link to this family. Nola Stuart was g.grandmother to my children. I just recently found the following information.
----------------------------------------------------
Griffin - Stuart
Sarah Ann(Nola) Stuart,1831 - 1943
daughter of Lewis A. Stuart and Sarah Ann Parker

James Henry Griffin, 1874 - 1959
son of Jerry Griffin and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Hall

IN MEMORY OF MRS. R. H. HALL [from the Butler Co. News 3-31-1927]
On March the 18th Our Heavenly Father saw fit to remove from our midst to heaven, our dear Grandmother.
She was an honest and upright Christian, a devoted mother and an excellent neighbor and friend to all. She won her friends by her acquaintances and if she had any enemies on earth, they were unknown.
Grandmother was 87 years of age and leaves to mourn her loss four children: Mrs. M.M. WYROSDICK of Georgiana, Route Six; Mrs. Lambert PARKER of Red Level; Mr. I.P. HALL of Georgiana, Mrs. Maggie MOXLEY of Tuscumbia, and a grandson who loved her most dearly, Charlie WEST, and a host of relatives and friends.
All was done for Grandmother that loving hands, kind friends, and doctor could do, but God saw fit to take her to his heavenly home.
A place is vacant in the home
A voice on earth is stilled
She is gone--but not forgotten.
She is only sleeping, so dear ones prepare to meet her in heaven above. We know it seems to be more than one can bear, but we know that the all-wise father has taken her home to that city that is made of gold; so just prepare yourselves in this world and meet her in the better world to come, where there is no pain or sorrow known.
"She is gone to Christ above
Forever there to reign."
Our loss is great; the breech is great, and it doth create much grief as all may see.
But lamentations shall cease as God thought it best to take her soul from here, away to its resting place.

Note by CMS: Mrs. R. H. HALL was Matilda GRIFFIN.

Mrs. R. H. HALL in the obit I posted was Melissa GRIFFIN Hall, not Matilda. Sorry for the error (and no one corrected me).

I am trying to gather information on my BROOKS family and researching a STEWART/STUART connection. I became interested in the family of John Nathan STUART who married my g-aunt Sarah Brooks HALL in 1905. I found him next door to Melissa Griffin HALL in 1900.

[Willie Moxley above killed my g-uncle Gabe Hall in 1912. Gabe was the brother of Sally Brooks Hall who became the second wife of John Nathan Stuart.]

I thought he might be related to Malissa GRIFFIN Hall, so I looked for him earlier and found him and his family in 1850, 1860, and 1880.

DEATHS
Mrs. Nola GRIFFIN
On Saturday night June 26 at 12:30 the death angel entered the home of Mr. J. H. GRIFFIN and silently carried the precious spirit of his beloved wife, Mrs. Nola, to her home on High. Having been ill for the past three weeks, she seemed to be recovering, but on Saturday afternoon she was taken worse again. All that kind and loving hands could do was done to ease her suffering but at last the Great Physician reached out and gave her peace and rest.
Mrs. Nola will be greatly missed in our community. Always ready to help and stand by her friends and neighbors in hours of trouble. she was such a comforting person.
She leaves to grieve for her, her husband, two daughters, Mrs. Ralph WILKERSON, Mrs. Luman STEELE, both of Mobile; two sons, Lewis GRIFFIN of Cleveland, Ohio, and Selma GRIFFIN of Camp Lee, Va.; four brothers, D. W. STUART, John STUART, Hicks STUART and Audie STUART. She also leaves several grandchildren.
Burial was in Macedonia Cemetery with Rev. Huffman conducting service. Pallbearers were: Griel, Woodrow and Carl STUART, Ellis HUDSON, Jake DAVIS, Jr., and James MARTIN, all nephews of the deceased except the latter, he being her grandson.
The little flower girls were Peggy WYROSDICK, Clydie Mae ODOM, Ima Lois WATFORD, Pauline COOK, Melba STEELE, Elizabeth SIMS, Lola JOHNSON, Imogene HESTER. Johnson Funeral Service in charge.
