I am descended from John Hall's son Robert Hall and Robert's wife Emeline Johnson.
I only have the first generation here. John Hall is my brickwall and I can't knock it down. Can anyone help?

I have a John Hall  who married Susanna Lunt (Hunt) in Georgetown, Maine on4Aug1766.  I cannot find anything more about their previous existence.  Who their parents were or where they came from or who their children with the exception of one son (who I am descended from.)   I don't even know their birth dates or death dates.  I do know they are suppposed to have buried in the Arowsic Cemetery near Georgetown, Maine.  The grave markers are mostly gone.  I do know that the Halls came from the Marblehead, Massachusetts area.  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Mary Ellen
