Issac Hall
Co. E
27 La Inf
Jul 20, 1862


A memorial stone for Issac Hall has been placed in the Cooper Wells section of Cedar Hill (Vicksburg City Cemetery).

From Booth's Index to Louisiana Confederate Soldiers at:

There are two Halls listed in Booth's Index, but your compiler believes these may be the same man. The regiment/unit and date of enrollment are the same. The "discharged" date is taken from the

"J" Hall. Actually, this is a large i for Issac. See cards below.

Hall, J.. Pvt. Co. E, 27th La. Inf. En. March 14, _, New Orleans. Roll for July to Nov., 1862. Died July 20 at Miss. Springs.

Hall, Isaac [sic]. Pvt. Co. E, 27th La. Inf. En. March 14, 1862. New Orleans, La. Roll for March, 1862, to May, 1862 (Roll No. 1). Present. Roll for March to May, 1862 (Roll No. 2), Discharged July 20, 1862.

This is the back or title section of the document below. It is a four-fold document  -- note the fold creases each side.

Note, too, capital I and its similarity to a capital j.

This is the "Application of Mary Hall widow of Isaac [sic] Hall decd late private in Capt Campbell's Company E 27 Reg. La Vols for arrears of pay due her late husband."

Before me James M. Lockett a Justice of the Peace, in and for the Parish of Bienville, State of Louisiana duly commissioned and sworn, personally appeared Mary Hall and made oath of the Holy Evengelists of Almighty God that she is the surviving widow of Isaac Hall decd late a private in Capt. Campbell's Company E. 27th Regiment of Louisiana and that she is entitled to the arrears of pay etcetera that may be due him from the Confederate States and also at the same time appeared John Alluny [?] and Green Hall (whom I certify to be credible witnesses) and made oath as aforesaid that they knew the deceased, Isaac Hall and his widow, Mary Hall who is here present and the facts sworn to by her are true and they are not interested therein.

Sworn to and subscribed before me this 27th day of November 1862

Left, notations concerning "I Hall."

See how the capital i resembles a capital j.

This is a request, dated 20 Apr 1863, for the amount of money that is owed to Isaac Hall and will be paid to his widow Mary Hall.


It is possible the J Hall cards in the Isaac Hall compiled service record are a result of misreading a j for an i. Your compiler has borrowed a portion of an image compliments of Judy White
to show how the 19th century handwriting often handles the capital i and capital j.
