Elmira Ann Heddins Hall

Elmira Ann (Heddins) Hall was the firstborn child of James & Clarinda (Brewster/Bruster) Heddins. Her paternal grandparents were Josiah Isaiah Heddins & Salome (Carpenter) Heddins. Her maternal grandparents were Thomas & Martha (Jefris) Brewster/Bruster.

When Elmira was a toddler she moved south to Van Zandt County, Texas with her parents and younger brother. They first settled in the Pleasant Ridge community of southern Van Zandt County on 160 acres of land granted to them by the State of Texas. In about 1870 they sold that land and purchased another 160 acres of land in northern Henderson County, close to the border of Van Zandt County.

On Oct. 28, 1880 Elmira married P. Marion Hall in Henderson County. The next year Elmira gave birth to a baby girl (now only known by her initials, J. A. Hall), and in December of 1882 they had a baby boy whom they named Arthur.

Sometime during the 1890s, Elmira's daughter died, and then between 1900 and 1910 Arthur died. The 1900 census indicates that she and Marion divorce, and an 1890 school roster which listed their daughter's "guardian" as Elmira's brother Oscar, indicates that the divorced must've taken place by 1890.

By 1910 Elmira was living with her younger brother J. Marion Heddins in Grand Prairie.

It is not know for certain where Elmira was buried, but the Heddins family cemetery, near her parents and two children is a likely location.
