Prudence Hall Chapter


Organized February 23, 1963

Chapter History

Harriet Prudence (Patterson) Hall, wife of John Hall, was born about 1743. She immigrated to America with her parents from North Ireland circa 1750-55. According to tradition, she delivered an important message to an American General after passing the British lines. Tradition also says that she nursed back to health a man scalped by the Indians.

Prudence and John Hall had 10 children. The descendants of one of these, Harriet Hetley West, emigrated west to Arkansas by covered wagon from about 1850 to 1870. Many descendants still live in the state and help make it a good place to live. One of them, Homer Martin Adkins, deceased, served as Governor of Arkansas for two terms (1941-1945).
