Samuel Q HALL, farmer, Ladoga, son of Bainbridge and Polly (NICHOLS) Hall was born  Sept 8, 1828 in Shelby Co Ky. He came while very young, accompanied by his parents, to Montgomery County and since his arrival has lived here, with the exception of about 9 months in 1856 which he spent in Iowa. He owns 190 acres for 100 of which he paid his father $400, and for 80 which he subsequently purchased he paid $1600. His land comprises the E 1/2 of SE 1/4 Sec 32 and 30 acres of the S. end of E 1/2 of NE 1/2 Sec 32; also the E 1/2 of SE 1/4 Sec 32. Mr. Hall was married Sept 8, 1857 to Martha Hall of Monroe County, Indiana. She was born Feb 1, 1830. They have 4 children: Mary E; Anderson N; Amanda F; and Benj. H.

Mr. Hall  is a thorough republican and successful farmer. He looks back to the time when his mother chopped the frozen meal from the sack just brought from the distant mill by his brothers and mixed it with water, then baked and gave it him and the others to eat. Those were early times and he notes the change. -- typed by kbz
