Further Information and Sources
Burial register includes Hall’s title – “Sir”
The inscription is difficult to read using RTI methods due to the faded letters and shadows created by the surrounding fence. Unknown words are transcribed as “__” and in some cases certain letters are filled in, as part of the word was decipherable. The last line of inscription appeared to read “39th”; however, the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, vol.6 under “Hall, Sir Robert” lists the dates of birth and death as “1778-1818”, inferring he was aged 40 at death.
