Abraham Thomson Hall

Born January 17, 1822 in Mifflintown to pioneer settlers of that part of central Pennsylvania, Hall became a barber in Lewistown, and then in 1841 went west by canal to Pittsburgh, and from there to Erie, Pa.  Hall was here just three years but long enough to establish in the home of Alexander Simms the St. James African Methodist Episcopal Church with 21 members.
