My GM's sister married some Hall's, so my ears just perk up.Zela 'Zellie'
Bookout m. Will Hall. I think he may have had prior marriage and on the lookout
for that and his parents.
Pat, you have a better handle on Kerley's than I do.Just wonder if George Thomas
Kerley and Thomas Marvin Kerley are related?I don't have enough info to connect
them.  Now I am forgetting which brothers and sisters that I thought married
siblings from yesterdays searches.Marsha

FYI:  George Thomas Kerley's second wife was Gracie Florence Hall.
Her parents are Robert Anderson Hall & Mary Alice McNeill.
Her first marriage was to Thomas Marvin Kerley.
These Kerleys are not all in the same cemetery but you can get from one family
member to another off each other!  Neat!
She can also be found at Find A Grave--be sure to look at George's info, too.

Ok, these pieces are fitting together now.
>From the info on Find A Grave, William Kerley only had 2 children.
Brother and sister Kerleys married brother and sister Russells.

William's daughter Nancy was the wife of James (Jim) Russell who shot his wife,
Nancy Kerley, about 1905 which is what her death date shows.
James is Ida's brother (maybe half) and Ida married William's son.

Again, thanks Marsha and Vera!
