Charles Hall I and his wife Aurelia Elluene Dupre left Georgia in 1783 bringing their son Charles Hall II with them to what was at that time Spanish Florida. 
Other children were born to Charles and Aurelia and the Halls grew in numbers and prestige.
Charles I and Aurelia are not buried in the Hall Family Graveyard, but their oldest son Charles Hall II is as well as many other descendants of the Hall Family.
            The Hall Family Graveyard is located N 30 degrees 51’ 722, W 87 degrees 52’ 103.  It is located off of Highway 225  in Baldwin County Alabama. 
From Crossroads, turn west onto the Cliff’s Landing Road (also know as Carpenter’s Landing).  The graveyard is about ¼ mile down the road on the left. 
The drive is small so drive slowly.  Situated under an umbrella of trees, is an acre of land referred to as the Hall Family Graveyard.

Farewell Octavia dear, farewell
Thou hast left me lonely in this world of pain
Oh may we meet in heavenly bliss to dwell
At God’s right hand no more to part again
Peaceful be thy silent slumber
Peaceful in the grave so low
Thou no more shall join our numbers
Thou no more our sorrows shall know
It is true, she has left us, her spirit has fled
Her body now slumbers alone with the dead
Her savior has called her, to him she has gone
Be ye also ready to follow her soon

Ye though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
