William Hall, Prisoner of War, Johnson's Island, Block 9, Mess 2, near Sandusky, Ohio, postmarked in Loudon TN in East Tennessee. Hall resided in Blount County, Tennessee with his wife Elvira (listed on the 1860 census records as Nancy E). Hall enlisted in Company H, 62nd Tennessee Infantry on September 26, 1862.

On September 13, 1863 he was arrested as a citizen and sent to Johnson's Island. Burial records show that William and Elvira are buried in Pine Grove Presbyterian Cemetery in Greenback, Loudoun County, Tennessee.
