Abstract:

These papers, 1785-1923, contain genealogical materials; maps; legal records of various types, especially deeds, indentures, and land grants; letters; financial records such as accounts, ledgers, journals, receipts, and estate records; electoral records; military records; and printed materials.

The largest series in these papers include legal records, 1785-1921 and n.d., .5 cubic ft.; the Bolling Hall (1767-1836) papers, 1787-1836 and n.d., 1 cubic ft.; the Bolling Hall (1813-1897) papers, 1836-1897 and n.d., 2.3. cubic ft.; and the Hines H. Hall papers, 1861-1922 and n.d., .5 cubic ft.

The Bolling Hall (1767-1836) papers, 1787-1836 and n.d., contain letters, militia records, financial records, estate records, and printed materials. Major subjects discussed include U.S., Ga., and Ala. politics and government; family matters; real estate in Ga. and Ala.; and operating a plantation in Ga., then Ala. Major correspondents included Hines Holt, William H. Crawford, Nathaniel Macon, Alexander Pope, John C. Calhoun, and T. & G. Holt and Co., among others. His financial records are of interest also. Some of the estate records are also quite detailed.

The Bolling Hall (1813-1897) papers, 1836-1897 and n.d., contain letters, speeches and writings, financial records, school financial records, estate records, and printed materials. Major subjects discussed include family matters, real estate in Ala.; U.S., Ga., and Ala. politics and government; business matters, especially operating a plantation, railroads in Ala., and the Elyton Land Co. and subsidiaries; and most especially, U.S.--history--Civil War, 1861-1865, in which he received over 150 letters from his five sons who fought in that conflict, and the emigration of some of his sons to Colo. in the 1870s for health reasons.

Major correspondents included his sons, his sisters Sarah Sasnett and Amanda Snodgrass; political figures Albert J. Pickett and Benjamin Fitzpatrick, and business correspondents, too numerous to name here.

Financial records are interesting and detailed, especially the shipping and selling of his cotton crop, his real estate dealings, and his interest in the South & North Ala. Railroad and the Elyton Land Co.

The Hines H. Hall papers, 1861-1922 and n.d., include letters, speeches, electoral records, financial records, estate records, printed materials, and United Confederate Veterans records.

Major subjects discussed include family matters; U.S.--history--Civil War, 1861-1865, the experiences of some brothers in Colo.; Ala. politics and government; the Ala. Farmers' Alliance, business matters, and other subjects.

Major correspondents included his father, Bolling Hall (1813-1897); his brother, Frank A. Hall; his sister, Caroline S. Handy; and political figures. The financial records are detailed, as are the records of the Robertson Springs (Ala.) chapter of the UCV.

Small, but interesting series are the: Mary L. Hall (ca. 1815-ca. 1858) letters, 1840-1858; Bolling Hall (1837-1866) letters, 1860-1865; John E. Hall papers, 1862-1876; Mary Louisa Hall (1844-1863) letters, 1860-1863; and the Caroline S. Handy letters and financial records, 1861-1906.
