I am looking for information on William HALL who married Elizabeth TAYLOR. they would have been born in the late 1700's in VA. I am descended from their son, John HALL (b. about 1816) who married Rebecca Bethel HARRISON probably in the early 1840's. John had a brother named Daniel HALL and probably a brother named Street HALL. I do not know who Elizabeth TAYLOR's parents are either. Can anyone help me?
