While looking for a connection in Kanawha Co., I came across this note concerning Middleton Hall,also his wife Mary (paraphrased for clarity:

"Middleton and Mary (Thursman) Hall were the parents of... Abigail Hall born in Franklin County, Virginia, May 2, 1833. Both were born in Franklin County, Virginia, in 1812 and they came to Kanawha County in October 1854, the father dying here June 18, 1876."
The source is Hardesty's "History of Kanawha County", found in a bio of Augustus Copen, who married Abigail Hall on December 21, 1855.

I think that Martha Wray (married Vandiver Hall) and Elizabeth Wray (married John Henry Hall) were children of Jonas Wray. They were half-sisters. Jonas was married twice, both mothers were named Elizabeth...
