Biography*1712Colonel Coventon Corbin's home was on Chincoteague Bay on the "Corbin Hall" site where he and his wife Barbaray are buried. In 1745 Coventon Corbin bought 125 acres of the Ann Potter part of A180 (between New Church and Horntown) from John and Ann Potter. In 1778 Coventon left it to his son George (Whitelaw, p. 1360). Also in 1745 John and Ann Potter sold 75 acres of swamp land which was also part of A180 to Coventon Corbin which later went to his son George (Whitelaw, p. 1361). In 1746 Coventon Corbin bought 150 acres of the Thomas Towles Part of A162 (west of Oak Hall) from William Johnson; it had been sold formerly to Ralph Corbin, but no deed had been given, and it was now deeded to Coventon as the heir-at-law of Ralph Corbin. The deed further stated that it was part of 200 acres which Johnson had bought from Thomas Towles by a General Court deed. The other 50 acres Johnson had sold to Nathaniel Stockley, but in 1749 Johnson bought it back and then sold it to Coventon Corbin. In 1778 Coventon Corbin left to his son George, who in 1793 left to his cousin George. In 1807 George and Mary Corbin sold as 169 acres to William Selby, and in 1821 he (wife Sally) left to John Burton, alias Button; five years later a survey for Burton heirs showed 205 acres (Whitelaw, pp. 1291/2). In 1746 Coventon and his wife Barbara deeded the Glading part of the North Half of the Neck of A148 (just east of Hallwood) to Coventon's brother George, after whom it was to go to George's son Ralph (Whitelaw, p. 1267). In 1756 Coventon and Barbara Corbin sold the Edward Bayly part of A140 (between Mappsville and Temperanceville) to Thomas Welbourn, the deed stating that he had bought it from Bayly by a General Court deed in 1751 (Whitelaw, p. 1233). Also in 1756 Coventon Corbin sold 40 acres of the Thomas Welburn part of A180 to Francis Welburn and an unspecified acreage to Daniel Marshall, each deed stating that it was a part of the land he had bought from Thomas Welburn by a General Court deed (Whitelaw, p. 1366). In 1757 he sold the Nicholas Mellichops part of A140 to Joseph Walker, the deed stating that he bought it from Charles Ashley by a General Court deed in 1746 (Whitelaw, p. 1228). In 1757 William and Betty Davis deeded to Coventon Corbin one-half of the swamp land (of the Charles Marshall part of A180 between New Church and Horntown) which had belonged to Charles Marshall. In 1772 Coventon Corbin sold 42 acres of swamp land he said he had bought from John Dubberly to Benjamin Royal. The next year Royal and his wife Susannah resold to George Marshall (Whitelaw, p. 1357). In 1760 Coventon Corbin deeded to Walter Douglas one-half of 684 acres of the John Robins part of A187 (Chincoteague Island) which he said he had bought from Edward Robins by a General Court deed. In 1778 Coventon left the balance of his island land to his son George Corbin (Whitelaw, p. 1378). In 1769 Coventon Corbin bought 40 acres of the Daniel Walker part of A181 (between Horntown and the MD-VA line) from Major and Tabitha Pettit (Whitelaw, p. 1369). In 1772 Coventon Corbin sold to Benjamin Royal 148 acres of 150 acres of the John Dubberly part of A180 (between New Church and Horntown) which he had bought from Dubberly; no local record was found so probably there was a General Court deed. Six years later Corbin left the other two acres, at the lower end of Horntown, to his grandson Thomas Cropper (Whitelaw, p. 1356). His will, written 8 Mar 1777, specified: To grandson Coventon Corbin (Cropper?) plantation purchased of George Dukes lying in Worcester Co, MD and the 100 acres on "Gingoteague" Island, also that parcel of land purchased of John Robins lying in Worcester Co, MD. Crops on the Dukes plantation to be sold for the education of my said grandson, and what I have given him to be rented and laid out for his education until he is 21 years of age, then to take possession of said lands. Should my said grandson die before the age of 21 I give the lands given to him to Thomas Cropper, all the rents &c. for his education till he is 21, and should he also die before the age of 21 I give the said lands to my grandaughter, Agnis Corbin, daughter of my son George. To grandson John Cropper. To grandson Thomas Cropper 2 acres at the lower end of Horntown, being part of the land purchased of John Dubberly. To son George Corbin all my other lands which I have a right to either on the Islands or on the main not before devised. Son George residual legatee and executor. Witt: Shadrack Dennis, Smith Melvin, Jemimah McCredy, John Field (Acc Wills &c. 1777-1780, p. 161). The above will mentions a grandson, Coventon Corbin, as first choice to inherit Worcester Co lands, with Thomas Cropper second choice and grandaughter Agnis Corbin third choice. This would imply that Coventon's only known son George had a son Coventon born before 1777. However, no record of such a person has been found, but Coventon's daughter Sabra Cropper did have a son Coventon Corbin Cropper, who could have been the Coventon Corbin referenced in the will. The Worcester Co lands should be traced to see who actually inherited them.

Marriage*circa 1772He married Elizabeth Revell Horsey, daughter of Col. Stephen Horsey IV and Agnes Revell, circa 1772.1 
Biography*In 1774 George Corbin was deeded a 372 acre plantation called Oak Hall by James and Mary Ingram in trust for Ingram. Later in the year Corbin and Ingram united in a deed of sale to William Downing. In 1786 William and Anne Downing sold 100 acres in the northeast corner adjacent to Logtown to George Corbin; this later went to his daughter Agnes D., and in time, she and her second husband Samuel Downing sold it also to William R. Drummond (Whitelaw, p. 1321). In 1781 John Cropper Jr. was appointed county lieutenant under Colonel William Davies, Virginia's Commissioner for War, succeeding his uncle George Corbin in that position (Whitelaw, p. 1042). In 1782 George Corbin bought a portion on the western corner of A180 (near Horntown) from Thomas and Martha Martin of Sussex Co, DE (Whitelaw, p. 1354). In 1784 Colonel John and Margaret (Pettit) Cropper deeded 126 acres of N84 (near Marionville) to George Corbin (brother to John Cropper's mother Sabra), saying the land had come to Margaret upon the death of her brother William, and a few months later Corbin deeded it back to Cropper alone (Whitelaw, p. 451). In 1785 George Corbin came to possess 60 acres within A171 call Logg Town which was about where where the road from Chincoteague meets the main highway, so perhaps the early settlement was here before it moved down to the present Oak Hall. This land passed to George's daughter Agnes D. Corbin, who married John S. Ker. In 1812 Agnes and her second husband Samuel Downing sold a total of 156 acres called Logtown to William R. Drummond. Also in 1785 George Corbin bought another 120 acres in this same location which also descended to his daughter Agnes and was included in the 156 acres of Logtown which she and her second husband Samuel Downing sold to William R. Drummond (Whitelaw, p. 1320). In 1785 George Corbin bought 120 acres of A180 (near Horntown) from Risden and Scarburgh Moore. George left it to his daughter Agnes D., who married John S. Ker. An adjacent 125 acres of A180 was sold by John and Ann Potter to Covington Corbin and in 1778 Coventon left to his son George, so both parts became united and went on to Anges' husband John S. Ker. On 5 Jul 1787 a Daniel Welburn of Halifax Co, NC, deeded to George Corbin all of the Samuel Welburn neck and swamp land for the good round sum of L450, stating that it included both the part which George had inherited from his father Coventon, and that which George had bought from Risdon Moore (Whitelaw, p. 1360). 75 acres of the swamp land was sold in 1745 by John and Ann Potter to Coventon Corbin, which later went to his son George and then to his daughter Agnes D. Corbin (Whitelaw, p. 1361). In 1786 the Assembly granted a charter to George Corbin, Isaac Avery, Thomas Evans, Littleton Savage, Levin Joynes, George Parker, John Harmanson, Edward Ker and John Cropper Jr., as trustees for "establishing a Seminary of learning either in the county of Accomack or Northampton" to be known as Margaret Academy (Whitelaw, p. 733). In 1790 an Act of the General Assembly authorized John Cropper, George Corbin, John Teackle and John Wise to sell land and buildings in Somerset Co, MD, and Accomack Co, VA, which were purchased for religious worship, to be paid to the trustees of the Washington Academy in MD and Margaret Academy in Accomack Co, VA (Whitelaw, p. 1024). In 1787 George Corbin bought 73 acres of A147 (near Hallwood) from Robert and Mary Bayly. He left it to his daughter Agnes D. Ker (Witelaw, p. 1263). In 1787 Corbin Hall, on A180 (near Horntown) over looking Chincoteague Bay was erected by George Corbin (Whitelaw, p. 1364). Also in 1787 he appeared on the Acc Co, VA, Personal Property Tax List "A" as having 19 blacks above 16; 14 blacks under 16; 14 horses, mares, colts & mules; and 56 cattle. In 1787 George Corbin bought 325 acres of A141 (east and south of Temperanceville) from Edward and Diedamia Taylor. It was next to A143 and on the east side of the seaside road after it turned northward again. In 1793 (Whitelaw said 1787) George Corbin left this 325 acres to his daughter Agnes D., the wife of John S. Ker. About 40 years later a survey of adjacent land showed this was owned by William D. Cropper (Whitelaw, p. 1241). In 1780 George Corbin bought 150 acres of A146 (between Temperanceville and Wattsville) from Edward Ewell and four years later 100 acres more which he called his home place. In 1793 he left it to his daughter Agnes D., the wife of John S. Ker, and in 1831 their heirs sold as 191 1/2 acres by survey to John Tatham (Whitelaw, p. 1251). In 1789 George Corbin bought 364 acres of A71 (Onancock) from Edmund and Elizabeth Custis and in 1793 left "my plantation at Onancock" to his friend Catherine Scott for life and then to his daughter Agnes D., the wife of John Shepherd Ker, upon which Kerr Place was erected (Whitelaw, p. 927). Also in 1789 George Corbin bought 364 acres of A72 from Edmund and Elizabeth Custis which became the eastern end of the later Kerr Place plantation for a while (Whitelaw, p. 936). One of George Corbin's last purchases would have been in 1793 when he bought 36 acres of A180 (near Horntown) from Thomas W. Marshall which he had held jointly with his sister Euphamy Marshall (Whitelaw, p. 1356).

Colonel George Corbin served in the Revolutionay War. 28 Mar 1781: "Ordered that John Cropper, gent. be recommended to his excellency the Governor as a proper person to discharge the office of County Lieutenant in the roome of George Corbin Esqr who resigned on account of bodily infirmities" (Acc Orders 1780-1783, p. 142)..3,4

In reference to a grandson to be named George Corbin, the title to the Chincoteague plantation, Island and swamp land did not descend according to that stipulation. There may have been such a son who died early. The 1806 will of Agnes' husband John S. Ker, left to a son Edward H.

Rev War Veteran*1775Robert served in the Revolutionary War in in 1775 at Accomack Co, VA. According to a declaration of Robert (Stephen) Corbin (Sr.) on 30 Jun 1851 his father, Robert Corbin, was a revolutionary soldier: "in order to obtain for the children of the aforesaid Robert Corbin the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832 - I have been informed by Robert Chase, a revolutionary pensioner, as well as by others who resided in the immediate neighborhood, that my father Robert Corbin performed Military duty in the Revolutionary War, and served under the following named officers and as herein stated. That he was enrolled in a company of Militia commanded by Captain Jesse Dickerson in the year 1778 or 79; which was commanded by Col. Southy Simpson. That he kept guard at "Holdings Creek" and other places on the sea and bay side. In consequence of the death of my father I cannot state now particularly the different places at which he was stationed in keeping guard. I have been informed that my father immediately after the passage of the law of 1832 in consequence of bodily infirmity made his declaration before a justice of the peace. The justice is now dead and the declaration made before him in my father's life time cannot be found. Robert Chase a revolutionary pensioner stated he served with him on guard and that he believes he served two years or more. He further states that in consequence of the exposed condition of this County the Militia Companies were frequently on duty and he is satisfied that no Company performed more service than Capt. Jesse Dickerson's in which my father was enrolled. My father was born in the County of Accomack, State of Virginia 3rd day of February in the year 1764, and was 79 years old when he died, as will appear by the family record in my possession" (Acc Orders 1851-1854, p . 51). 26 Aug 1851: "It is ordered to be certified to the Court that it appears by satisfactory evidence that Robert Corbin, a declaration of whose services in the Revolutionary War is now on record in this Court, was a resident of this County and died in the same on or about the 15th day of November, 1843. It is further ordered to be certified that he left no widow but the following children whose names are Milcah Stant, Edward and Robert Corbin, and they were his only living children at the time of his death" (Acc Orders 1851-1854, p. 76).

Drummond Admr. Named in settlement: Stephen Drummond & Spencer Drummond. Auditors: Thomas Custis & Thomas Cropper..9 
Anecdote1803 Tracing the land that William Drummond Junr owned is cmoplicated. At the settlement of his estate on 19 Jan 1802 it showed that 100 pounds had been realized by sale of land and mill. However no record has been found of him being left land in the Hunting Creek Area mentioned in his will, or of him buying it. However, on 4 Jan 1802 a deed was made from John Custis, who sold by order of Court dated 21 Aug 1798, lands belonging to the children of William Drummond, dec'd, to Smith Melson (Acc Co Deeds 1800-1804, p. 244). This deed explanins that no deed had been given at the time of the sale, but now Melson is selling the same land to Daniel Drummond, 11 acres located at head of Doe Creek. It brought 50 pounds, which was paid to the guardian of said William Drummond who was entitled thereto. This child was evidently William S. Drummond, whose father left him "my Hunting Creek Lands." Willia Drummond Junr bought his Messongo land on 21 Nov 1795 from Robert Chase and wife Sarah, 61 acres of land and marsh together with a grist mill with all the appertenances belonging for 32 pounds specie (Acc Co Deeds 1793-1797, p. 334). This property was apparently also sold by John Custis in 1798 for 50 pounds without him giving a deed for it.7 
Anecdote*30 July 1810 It was on this date that Elizabeth Lewis, wife of Custis Lewis, William S. Drummond, Ann T. Drummond, Richard H. Drummond and Catherine S. Drummond were named the only children and heirs of William Drummond dec'd, a soldier of the 9th VA Regt. during the Rev. War.10

A notation indicates that he remained in the unit until 28 November when he was taken into sea service. Another notation indicates that he enlisted on 2 February 1776 and was discharged in September 1776 which conflicts with the bounty land warrant information below..5,6

Severin East, Southy East and Richard East brought a chancery suit against Mary East, Asa East, Sally East and Nehemiah East. The dispute was over a tract of land in St. George Parish, Accomack County containing about three acres being the land which a certain Southy East Senior deceased resided on during his lifetime and devised to William East who died intestate and without issue in 1796 leaving both the plaintiffs and the defendants who were his siblings of the whole blood as his next of kin (there being no mother living). Since the defendants were minors, under the age of 21, they could not consent to the sale without a decree from the chancery court. William Gibb acted as guardian for the minor children. A summons was issued which ordered the defendants to appear in court on 12 March 1797.9

Rev War heirs named*27 March 1832Southy's heirs were named on 27 March 1832 at Accomack Co, VA. Nottingham shows that Southy W. East, Severn East and Mary Bloxom, wife of Elijah Bloxom, are the only heirs at law of Southy East and Nehemiah Walker dec'd, who were in the Army of the Rev. from Virginia. Victor S. Dunn found that Southy’s heirs received a military certificate for his service. A note dated 27 May 1831 indicates he was allowed land for three years’ service as a seaman in the Virginia State Navy. A statement dated 25 June 1832 indicates that William East, Asia East, Richard East, Sarah East and Nehemiah East children and devisees of South East deceased formerly a soldier in the Revolutionary War are dead and that each died intestate, unmarried and without issue and that Severn East, Southy East and Mary Bloxom, wife of Elijah Bloxom are the only heirs at law and devisees of said Southy East now living with said Severn, Southy and Mary as the only heirs of the deceased children and also of the widow of Southy [not named] who also died intestate.

Last Edited13 Sep 2015
Biography*According to Rev. John W.A. Elliott's Ledger Book, this Thomas Elliott was one of two cousins named Thomas Elliott who were born in England. His father John had a brother (unnamed) who died young and left his son Thomas to be raised by his brother John, who also had a son Thomas Elliott of about the same age. In order to distinguish between the two Thomas Elliotts, Rev. Elliott referred to the orphan as Thomas, farmer, who setted in Onley, Acc Co, VA and to his cousin as Thomas, mechanic, who settled near Wachapreague, Acc Co, VA. Rev. Elliott also shows his ancestors in England as follows: Thomas Elliott the immigrant mechanic was the son of John Elliott, who was the son of Charles Elliott, who was the son of William Elliott, who was the son of Thomas Elliott, who was the son of John Elliott, who was the son of William Elliott, who was the son of Charles Elliott, who was a minister in the Church of England and his son John Elliott was of high position, holding large estates, back to the 15th century. 
Birth*circa 1705Thomas was born circa 1705 at England. According to Rev. John W.A. Elliott's Ledger Book, Thomas Elliott the mechanic was nearly 30 years old when he married..1 
Anecdote1710 The following account is taken from to Rev. John W.A. Elliott's Ledger Book. The two cousins of the same name Thomas from early boyhood entertained views alike raised together in one family. The parents of one of the cousins died and left the son an orphan, hence his uncle and father of the other cousin took the orphan boy to his home as a companion of his son, hence raised and educated as one family, enjoying equal privileges. They were as brothers. No distinction made, what one had was enjoyed by both. Early when but boys they would walk the sandy shores of the eastern shore of the Atlantic ocean with a desire to cross the great sea to the other side, to America, which had been pictured to their fancy in such glowing colors that the impression was so vivid and strong that was not to be easily erased, hoping that and opening of kind providence would sometime favor their enterprise resolving to embrace the most favorable opportunity. The two cousins were near one age and no more thought of this trip would be made until they became of age to act for themselves. One of the cousins learned the trade of making sleighs, the other worked on the farm. The father was a farmer, the adopted son learned to farm. When the young men were nearing their freedom, the old father died and left some estate to his son the sleigh maker and a legacy to his brother's son whom he had adopted. He having beside some estate from his father that died in his infancy, having been closely managed by his uncle who was his guardian. These young men were strictly moral and baptized by the Church of England. Now there seemed to be an opening for their long contemplated enterprise to see America and there to seek their fortunes in a foreign land. Although there was deep thought and painful anxiety about leaving one's native land to an uncertain, unseen land produced much halting and suspense, there was yet left a tender mother that demanded their care. They could not leave their tender mother and their native land they yet loved. In a few years their mother also died in great peace. Her grave cared for yet remains many friends and relatives, but still they resoled to seek their fortunes in America. They gather up all their means and made deposits in some of the best banks and check payable in America, taking with them enough to pay expenses of their voyage. The next thing was to find passage. This they soon found, a ship Angolio bound from London to Norfolk in the state of Virginia.1 
Anecdote*17 June 1724 The two Thomas Elliott cousins embarked from England on 17 Jun 1724 with their goods and chattels, took second class accommodations, paid their faire and entered for sea. The long anticipated trip was commenced, sails hoisted, bid adieu to friends, heading for the west over the vast expanse of a less ocean they looked back to the sinking land. Soon shut out of vision they walked the deck. There was no land to be seen in any direction, all was water, wind and waves. Not having any experience of a sailor's life, soon they became sick. All was trouble and sorrow and a small hope of mitigating their troubles with a long voyage ahead, fearful days and restless nights to pass. No loving thing to be seen, seldom a sail. They were shut out of the world. Nothing to cure the scurvy of the sea. Sometimes fearful of the pirates that infested the sea, they would walk the deck of the old bark thinking of home and loved ones and imagine their reception in a strange land. No one that they could apply to befriend them. They spoke to each other in the most familiar way as Tom and Tom, but no two persons could be closer ailed one to the other. They formed no acquaintances on the ship. They often spoke of the business they should follow. Tom the farmer was confident of his success as a farmer, the staple business of all countries, and Tom the sleigh maker supposed his business would be in demand as all domestic wars were won by hand. The two cousins scanned to shore up to cheer up under the prospect ahead. The weather had been remarkably fine, the wind favorable and everything indicative of a pleasant passage. At noon each day the captain took in the sun and worked up his trip, reported that they were nearing the Gulf Stream and that Cape Henry bore a due west direction. The ship was making extra time if still favorable. One week more they should see the western land. The Gulf Stream trade winds bearing down on them, but they held their course on the old ship, plunded like a thing of life. The report of the Captain was that the ship had made two hundred miles in the last 24 hours. Next day at noon the Captain's report was a fine South West winds fair making good times things would be pleasant, yet they thought of their native land and loved ones across the sea. Next day noon Captain reports nearing the American land and favorable that they would see land on tomorrow. Next morning they were headed off by a head wind that increased to a storm. Sea very high, the ship labored hard. Dark and thick weather. After getting the ship under close reef sails the Captain orders to hold the ship as close to the wind as possible to get under the land. This storm continued that day and night with fearful violence. Next day land is in view. The Captain had lost his reckoning, was unable to determine what land was made.
The Captain orders was to keep off one point. The lead was thrown, the water was shoaling in a few minutes the ship struck on an off shore sand bar. All was gloom and doubtful. No prospect of getting the ship off, she was a total wreck. They remained on board during a day and gloomy night. There was much water in the ship. They had to leave early in the morning in the boats and made for the shore. Some of the inhabitants came down to the beach and reported that the point on which the ship struck was Dorson Sholes near Cedar Island and the inlet was Wachapreague, County of Accomack, Virginia. They returned to the ship and took off what articles they could and left her a total loss, all the crew and passengers safe on the Shore. The passengers and crew except the two Tom Elliotts were taken by a vessel to Norfolk. The two Tom Elliotts were taken to the mainland by some of the inhabitants that were down to the beach with their baggage and what was saved from the wreck. Now planted their feet on American soil, this being the 17 July 1724, one month on their passage. After prospecting around, viewing the county and forming some acquaintances, they concluded to look no further but to make Accomack County their homes.1 
Anecdote17 July 1724 Thomas Elliott, being a fine man in appearance, became popular, was very social, introduced his sleigh making business. Being a very useful trade sleighs were much in demand and many customers, settled himself bought land and built the old Elliott homestead which yet remains. After completing his dwelling and establishing his business he thought it time to look up a wife. Being near thirty years old in Northampton County he became enamored with one Miss Anne Wescott, a nice accomplished lady of means.1 
Anecdote1730 The sleight maker was very fair, a well-proportioned man and the ladies pronounced him handsome, and to distinguish him from his cousin of the same name was called "White Tom Elliott." The other being dark-skinned, his working being out-of-doors on the farm was called "Black Tom Elliott," not inferior but all respects the pure Anglo-Saxon but merely for distinguishing the one from the other. The two cousins continued one on the farm and the other at his trade became very popular and highly respected, each as a citizen very progressively, as you may suppose. Were together finally they concluded not to prospect any further but to situate themselves. They both bought farms, the mechanic bought a farm in the neighborhood of Wachapreague now known as the Samuel Colonna farm as a part of the tract, built and commenced as a bachelor and continued his trade which he found to be quite profitable. His family became know as the Elliotts of Locustville, merchants and tradesmen of rank and distinction. The other cousin purchased a farm near the Cross Roads now known as the Hargis farm. He went in for farming, soon married and settled down, raised a highly respected family.1 
Marriage*1738He married Ann Wescott, daughter of John Wescott II and Ann Johnson, in 1738. According to Rev. John W.A. Elliott's Ledger Book, this marriage took place as supposed in year 1733. Their marriage was performed by a church parson. Mr. Elliott was brought up in the Episcopal Church in England and some of his ancestors were ministers of that order. They became as one by a marriage union, lived in loving friendship and raised a family of interesting children. Sons of the offspring yet remain of Elliotts, Bells, and Mearses. His wife was a lady of high esteem in Northampton County, a Miss Anne Wescott, a lady of some means and who proved to be a most excellent wife. This connection brought Thomas Elliott among the first families of Northampton. He was refined, handsome, and his manners took him amidst the best societies. That intermarriage is respected to the present-day by the Wescott and Elliott families..1

M, b. circa 1760, d. before 1800
FatherEphraim Hall (the elder) b. c 1722, d. a 1787
Last Edited20 Jun 2014
Biography*The assumption is that the Ephraim listed as the brother of Daniel Hall in Daniel's will was the father of Ephraim who was a seaman in the Virginia State Navy in the Revolutionary War. This is based on the fact that the elder Ephraim would have been about 50 years of age during the Revolution, normally too old to be a seaman, and that he must have had a son Ephraim, who was in the Revolutionay War. He evidently died before 1800 as he was not listed as a head of household in that year's census. 
Birth*circa 1760Ephraim was born circa 1760 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Rev War Veteran*1780Ephraim served in the Revolutionary War in in 1780 at Accomack Co, VA. "It is ordered to be certified that it appears to the Court satisfactory proof that John C. Hall, Mary Ann, Eliza and John Hall, Gilbert Hall and Sophia Copes the wife of Peter Parker Copes are the only heirs at law of Ephraim Hall who was a Seaman in the Virginia State Navy in the Revolutionary War, and that the said Ephraim Hall died intestate." "Ordered that the guardian of the infant heirs of Ephraim Hall dec'd, do sell, assign and transfer all the Military Land Script to which they are entitled for the services of said Ephraim Hall in the Revolutionary War." (Acc Orders 1832-36, p17, dated 25 Sep 1832, and p564) It should also be noted that in most of the Acc Orders stating heirs of Revolutionary War vetrans, it specifically mentions when the named heirs are sons or daughters. It is assumed that since no specific relationship was mention, that the heirs were his necies or nephews..2 
Marriage*circa 1785He married Susanah (-----) circa 1785.3,4 
Death*before 1800Ephraim died before 1800.
