Family Put the War Behind Them

by | Mar 23, 2015 | Confederate affiliation, Sampson

Malcolm McDonald Hall of Sampson County, my great-great-grandfather, was a private in the Confederate army. I do not have much information on him, but I know he was from Sampson County. He was born Malcolm McDonald, but after his father’s death his mother married a James Hall. Apparently, Malcolm assumed the Hall surname. Malcolm survived Fort Fisher and the Civil War. His son, Bruce Wright Hall, was a doctor who practiced in Wilmington. His home was at Front and Castle streets. Wright Hall and his son James founded Hall’s Drug Store at 5th and Castle.
