Alternate Spelling: John A. W. Hall

June 1, 1861 – Enlisted at Cumberland County, NC

Rank: Private
June 17, 1864 – Captured near Petersburg, VA

***** PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION*******
Due to circumstantial evidence, we believe that John A. W. Hall is the John W. Hall from the Charles Hall Family. He is the only John W. Hall is census records (of approximately the correct age) from this area in 1850/1860. He is also the brother of Stephen W. Hall. It is very common for at least 2 brothers to have enlisted together. There are other issues….some researchers show that John W. Hall died in Wake County in 1913. The Death Certificate of that John W. Hall shows he was from Cumberland County, but no parents were listed….No parents are listed which indicates the informant knew little. There is a further problem of the Soldier John A. W. Hall’s death. He is listed as having died at Elmira, NY. There is no record of his burial at Woodlawn National Cemetery. Woodlawn does often misspell names, but the soldier’s graves are usually recorded. We do not believe that anyone will 100% prove the identity of this soldier. If anyone has any proof that the John W. Hall from the Charles Hall family is not the soldier, please email us at cumberlandploughboys@rocketmail.com
