I hold and interest in the Historical Queensland Hall Family and a particular Historical Queensland Hall Family Person, by the name of :

Jane Hall

Who married a Gent by the name of Charles Thomas Collyer, in 1883, Just as an aside, it's interesting to note they actually did name a Male Sibling after Dad aka Charles Thomas Collyer. So realise there are 2 of them floating around if you are doing the Complete Collier Tree. I have no interests in doing so Myself.

On to Jane Hall ....

I'm interested in Jane Hall's prior Ancestors, it does seem that in the earliest years of the 1900's the couple were living in Charters Towers and could have moved around quite some amount, prior and post 1903. As Charles Thomas was working for Queensland Rail.

If you are a Hall Blood Family Member I would love to hear from You, or if You have a Research Interest in the Hall Family of which My Jane Hall is a known Member to you, or have old Documents or Information about Jane's earlier Hall Ancestors feel free to post a Reply. Many Thanks.
