Re: Dent Family - Early Jackson Co. Settlers ( Hall )
I will have to get back into my Hall family notes. I can tell you
right off hand that one Hall family moved into Pope County, IL. I
know this because Mary Lucinda Dent did a land transaction with
William J. Hall in 1855. This William Hall was called Jeeter. His
family was in Jackson County in the early 1850s. Once again, I
suspect that Mary Lucinda might have had a family connection with
this Hall family. They all moved to Pope together. Mary Lucinda
Dent bought land from Jeeter. Thomas Lewis Dent, Mary's son, bought
land from Jeeter. All suggestive of blood connection.
Unfortunately, as we all know, this isn't definitive.
