Bolling Hall, Jr. was born May 8, 1813, in Hancock County, Georgia to Bolling, Sr. and Jane (Abercrombie) Hall. He was educated in Autauga County, Alabama and the University of Georgia. He graduated from Univ. of Georgia when he was eighteen in 1831 and was admitted to the bar in 1834 in Montgomery, Alabama. However, he decided to become a planter rather than practice law.

He was appointed inspector general of the Alabama State Militia in 1835 and he served in the Creek War of 1836. He was an opponent of secession but when the Confederacy was formed, Hall was a supporter and had five sons who fought for the Confederacy.

  1. Hello Mrs Causey,

    I am doing research for my family along with my cousin Kurtis Patterson. We came across your article
    on the Bolling Hall family. We need some information on our ancestors who are the Bolling’s and specifically my black ancestors who were slaves. My great great great Ella Jones who mother was Amanda Hall and we have document that says my family came from the Ellerslie Plantation.

    We have census, death, birth etc… information. We would like to talk to you and or the family members etc.. who can help us with our journey. I would really appreciate your help and influence.
