Hi Dale, I am a "double cousin" of Carol listed below (discovered her on-line!!) Thanks for looking into Freelove Hall for us. You and Carol are both "Salt Laker's"--she has been going once a year for several years now!! Are your Smiths from the same area as Halls? (Bayville, Centre Island, Oyster Bay) I'm in the area if you need something looked up or checked out.

Carol, I have documented back to Reuben Hall JR b 1801 (Bayville NY) I do know his father is Reuben SR. and Mother Sarah ?
I found Reuben Jr's Death information on the Oyster Bay Register's office. I don't know if you have seen this site or not, but if anyone is reading this they might try it. Go to google and put in "Index to Register of Deaths Town of Oyster Bay (1881-1920)" You can download this booklet to your computer. Also under Town Brochures & Booklets, there is the "1847-1849 Birth, Marriage and Death Records' This is great also.
I did locate James (1835) and Alexander's (1833) death dates, You can then send for their Death Records. They provided a form for Genealogy.... There are two James listed, but by checking the Cemeteries, you can see where a James and an Alexander are buried in the same cemetery. NO FREELOVE. ....

I believe I have some information sent to me on Freelove. Will search for it and post it. (I'm in the middle of re-organizing everything and can't find anything.
Hope this helps. Dale

Dale, What time period are your HALLs and what names are you looking for ? I am looking for more on a Freelove HALL who married James Fleming. He was born in Scotland and died about 1835 in Buckram, Queens Co., N.Y. She was born in Bayville but I don't have any dates. They had a son, Alexander FLEMING (1804-1883). I have a folder on the HALL family.

I'm new to this site, and was excited to see a Long Island group. I'm researching the HALL line from bayville. (Father's side) I've copied so much while in Salt Lake concerning Long Island..Marriage, Land, Death, etc But still face a Brick Wall.
Now on my mothers side we have SMITH (another area)
I hope to plan a trip back soon. I live in CA. Will be glad to share all I have...Dale

My ancestor George Joris Woolsey came to Long Island when it was New Amsterdam in the 1600s.

I am researching the Genovese family from Long Island and also the Dembroski family that may have lived there as well.
