The Hall community in this area was named for pioneer settlers
John and Sarah Hall who moved here about 1860 from Mississippi. A rural settlement
gradually built up in the area, and in 1882 landowner J. R. Bishop deeded two acres to
the community for a school. Part of the land contained grave sites, so one acre was set
aside for a community cemetery. The oldest documented burial is that of the unnamed
infant son of W. J. and Louisa Williams, who died at birth on June 21, 1873. the cemetery
also served the nearby Wattsville community.
