George Hall and Mariam (McKee) Hall were my 2xg-grandparents on my mother's maternal side.  It still amazes me that I have THREE ancestral lines to Woodford County, two behind my Dad and one behind my Mom.  The two behind my Dad eventually met up and married, however the ancestors behind my Mom lived many miles away, but you never know!  Maybe they walked the same ground, or perhaps were even acquainted with each other.

Their minister Joseph Byram McCorkle is a character worth researching.  Son of another minister.
