Children of Joseph Hall & Sarah Caudill: Mary Ellen Hall

Mary Ellen Hall was the first child of Joseph Leonard Hall and Sarah Caudill.  She was born October 4, 1880 in Pike County, Kentucky.  She was not in the 1880 census with Joe and Sarah because she was born after the census was taken.  The 1890 census was burned.  On January 23 1897 she married Isaac Martin "Ike" Profitt, the son of Hiram and Chrissie Adams Profitt.

In 1900 Isaac was 23, Ellen 18 and their children were Joseph, 2, and Crisy, 10 months.  They were in Rockhouse.

In 1910 they were in Camp Branch.  Isaac was 33, Mary E. 29, Millard 12, Crissie 8, Jesse 7, Alvin 5, Israel M. 3, and Gilbert M. 6 months.

When Ike registered for the draft for WWI in 1918, he was listed as tall, medium build with blue eyes and gray hair.

In 1920 Isaac was 42, Mary A. 39, Millard 22, Crissie, 20, Jessie 18, Alvin 15, Martin 13, Moses 10, Benna 7 and Marion 4 years 3 months old.

In 1930 Isaac M. was 55, Mary 49, Cecile 31, Alvin 26, Martin 23, Moses 20, Benjamin R. 17, and Marion 14.

Mary Ellen's Children:

Joseph Millard  married Mary B. Collins.  They had three children that I know about:  Millard, Joseph Isaac, and Dewy Robert.  Millard was born in 1926.  Joseph Isaac  was born on Janurary 13, 1927 at Thornton.  He died on January 14th of "bold hives."  Dewy Robert was born August 4, 1929 and died in Whitesburg in 1990.  Millard and Mary stayed in Letcher county.  He died in 1971.

Chrissie who was still at home at age 31 and was listed as Cecile died in Knott County in 1982.

Jesse married Minnie Hart.  I found them in the 1930 census, but they were very hard to read.  The ancestry transcribers had Jesse as Jean and children Edn soemthing, Meda, Famenmasen.  Jesse looked like Jesse to me, age 29.  Minnie 21 and the children were 2 daughters and one son.  I went to the birth records and input Minnie Hart as a mother and came up with the following children:

Eddie E. July 21, 1927
Alta O.  September 15, 1928
Famenmasen (could it be Free Mason?  ) from the census.
Isaac Marion February 3, 1930
