Thumbs Down!

Contributor: Turpinca Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Grandpa Tom was nailing shingles on top of a house. My dad, Claude Hall, was standing on the ground watching his Dad. All of a sudden, Grandpa Hall let out a war whoop. Apparently, he hit his thumb. The hammer got it; and it must have hurt bad. In the meantime, my Dad started laughing at the whole thing. Here came the hammer; Grandpa had thrown it at him! My Dad jumped out of the way and it missed him by inches. Perhaps, my Dad learned that it was a dangerous thing to laugh around a man with a sore thumb.

Miracle of the Desert

This is a quote from the book, Miracle of the Desert, written by Thomas H. Williams; I know that there are mistakes – in this history. my purpose in including this,” Family History of Thomas Arthur Hall”, is to contrast it with the family history that we know is factual. “Family History of Thomas Arthur Hall Thomas Arthur Hall was born 1870 in Jefferson City, Calloway County, Missouri, and was the son of William Charles Stewart Hall who was born about 1883 in Virginia and died about about 1903 in Nevada, Missouri. Tom’s mother was Eliza Jane Herron [it was actually “Herring”] born in 1827 in Virginia and died Feb. 22, 1917 at Blackfoot, Idaho. “Tom Hall married Mollie Elizabeth Eubank [her name was actually Mary, but Mollie was a nickname] on the 21st day of Feb. 1894. She was the daughter of Andrew Jackson Eubank, born July 22, 1840 in Richmond, Virginia, and he died Sept. 17, 1905 in Walnut Ridge, Ark. On July 14, 1869, he married Martha Allas Cooper, who was born Mar. 10, 1849 at New Haven, Franklin County, Missouri. She died March 5th, 1904 in Walnut Ridge, Ark. “Tom and Mollie Hall had 4 children, Herbert Arthur, born Nov. 27, 1894; Edna Mae born Dec. 11, 1897; Claude Leslie born March 23, 1902 and James Elmer born June 10th, 1905 all born at Oak Ridge, Ark. Mollie passed away on Nov 1st, 1905 and Tom brought his family of 4 small children to Blackfoot a few months later. “On July 22, 1907 Tom married Emma Peterson born 1886 in Utah daughter of Lars Peterson. They had two children, Ora Almedia born Jan. 10, 1913 and John Henry, burn Sept. 9, 1915 both born at Blackfoot. Emma Hall passed away Aug. 4, 1924 and Tom married Almena Furniss Peterson on Dec. 31, 1925 at Blackfoot. Both of them were instantly killed in car accident on Nov. 11, 1937 in Rockford. “Claude Leslie Hall married Ellen Verona Anderson on March 26, 1924 and they were the parents of three children, Herbert Arthur born Dec. 1, 1924; Leslie Odell born April 24, 1927 and Doris Arlene born Dec. 13, 1929. Ellen Anderson died Feb. 28, 1930 and Claude married Florence Margaret Carlson (Smith) on April 18, 1942 at Billings, Montana [I think they were married in Dillon, Montana, instead of Billings, Montana]. She was a widow [she was actually divorced from her first husband, but was embarrassed by being called a ‘divorcee’, so she called herself a ‘widow’] with one child, Carol Patricia Smith, born March 17, 1938. They were the parents of 4 children, all born in Blackfoot, Idaho. Marsia [Marsha] May, born May 17, 1943; Joyce Marie, born May 19, 1945; Linnea Florence born May 26, 1946 and Barbara Lois, born August 27, 1947. “In 1930, James Elmer Hall married Gertrude Francis Roy, born Dec. 30, 1913 at Blackfoot, Idaho and they were the parents of three children, Donnetta Mildred, born June 10, 1931; Arverd James, born Oct. 2, 1934 and Jerry Arthur born Feb. 15, 1934, all born at Blackfoot. “Tom and his son, Emer were plasterers and plastered a good many buildings in local community, while Claude made a living at farming.” This was compiled by Thomas H. Williams, but he made some errors. We are grateful for all the work – the tremendous work – that he did in putting this history together.
