I have a small (possibly sugar) spoon that was passed down through my
Hall line. It is engraved with an H on the back and has the words
Lincoln & Foss and Sterling on the back of the handle. If family
information is correct that is came with the Halls when they came from
England it would be about 400 years old. I would not think that this
would be correct as I was also told in the 1950's that is was just over
200 years old.
My Hall line is from MA the first being widow Mary Hall and her son
The Hall line that migrated south to LA was Joseph Adams Hall born 1817
in Boston to Joseph Hall and Maria Bartlett. I think it was from this
family that it may have first belonged to.
I would like to find out information about the company of Lincoln and
