Photo Details

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Jesse HALL which was taken at the Bushnell Studio in Ellensburg, WA in the 1890's. Jesse appears to be in his teens or 20's at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Jesse and his family:

Jesse Benton HALL was b. 28 Nov 1874 in California to parents William Keling HALL (1839-1907) and Martha Jane ALLEN (1854-1878). Jesse was one of two children born to this couple including a brother Perry Crawford HALL b. 1873. After his Mother Martha died his father remarried and two additional children were born including, Fannie B.; and William K. HALL, born between 1882 and 1906. Jesse married Josephine “Josie” NOEL (1870-1919) and together they had 6 children including, William Edward; Loyal Leslie “Roxy”; Daisy H.; Lottie Opal; Martha Virginia; and Delbert Benton HALL, all born between 1897 and 1911.

Jesse died 20 May 1946 in Cle Elum, WA and is buried in Laurel Hill Memorial Park Cemetery in Cle Elum.
