Frederick Hall (52 Ancestors #21)

Frederick Hall was my 3x Great Grandfather on my Mother’s side.  Frederick was born in February of 1841 in England.  As of yet I have been unable to find his parents.  In 1870 he married Mary Ann Waller and shortly after they had Charles Alfred.  They also had George in England before they arrived in America in New York in April of 1872.

Wedding announcement from the Newport Mercury on Saturday October 10, 1903

About a year and a half after Tillie and Millard married, she died.  I have been unable to find a death certificate, but one can speculate it may have been in child birth. The death notice in the paper has some discrepancies in it, but as with anything it is unknown who reported the information.  The discrepancies are her age.  She was 21 one she died not 23 and they notice says they were married less then a year.  Which is also not the case.

Matilda “Tillie” Peckham (Hall) Sherman lived a very short life.  I hope it was a happy one.
