Description Adeline Hall holding book open in lap. Adeline Susannah Boblett Hall (b. December 23, 1844, d. August 24, 1912) was born on December 23, 1844 in Dayton Ohio to John Boblett and his wife. Her mother died when she was a small child, and her father moved the family to Iowa where he married Elisabeth Hosier in 1854. Adeline served as a nurse during the Civil War, and in 1867 she began teaching school in Minneapolis, Kansas. She met James Hall in 1868, and on January 31, 1869 they were married and moved to James Hall’s claim on the banks of Prosser Creek. On October 27, 1870, her first child, Sharlot Madrith, was born, followed in 1874 by a son, Edward V. In 1879 the family moved to a region of ranches north of Indian Territory (Oklahoma) line where James turned to cattle ranching. After Adeline’s father located a mining claim in the Lynx Creek area near the Arizona Territory’s town of Prescott, James Hall and Adeline’s brother, Sam Boblett, moved their families to Arizona in 1881. The Halls found a small ranch in an area called Lonesome Valley, where they began raising cattle. Adeline suffered from ill health for many years before she died in 1912.
