Richard Mynatt was born 1728 in London, England and died 1824 in Grainger County, TN. In 1749, he voluntarily indentured himself in order to pay for his passage to America. He was 20 years old and his indenture was to last four years. He worked as a pastry cook for the Honorable Thomas Lee, Esquire of Virginia, earning 8 pounds sterling per year.

Richard was evidently such a great cook, that when his indenture was completed, the Lee family refused to release him. Richard Mynatt's place in history is secured by being the first indentured servant to sue successfully for release from his master, Philip Ludwell Lee, heir of Thomas Lee, on July 31, 1754.

He married Sarah Cummings/Cummins on March 31, 1755 in Prince William Co., Virginia. Richard and Sarah lived in Virginia until 1787. They had 10 children, Leannah, William, Margaret, Elizabeth, Sarah, George, Hannah, Nancy, John and Susanna.

During the Revolutionary War, Richard and his oldest son William both served under George Washington. Richard served as and express rider because of his age.

In 1787, he and Sarah sold their land in Virginia and moved to Tennessee.

Richard served two terms as door keeper in the 1795 session of the House of Representatives of the Territory of the U.S.A. south of the Ohio river for which he was paid $1.75 per day.

Richard bought 450 acres on 15 Jun 1796 in Grainger County, Tennessee. He lived there with his family until his death.

He signed his will in 1805, but it was not probated until 1824. Will was probated 1824 in Knox Co., TN Vol 4, p. 1, Estate Bk. #279563 1824-30.

It is not logical that his family waited almost 20 years before probating his will so I have estimated his death year closer to the probate date. When I have definite proof of his death, I will add it to his memorial.

Welcome to the Hallmark Family History Homepage, a place designed for all Hallmarks in America, providing important information dating back to George Hallmark, (Sr.) (1742-ca.1812), the known primogeniture of most all the Hallmarks in America -- the so-called 10 Branches (ie. He had 9 sons and 1 daughter). Following is a brief history of George (Sr.)and his life, from England to America, including wife and children. We've tried to document all the information according to proper standards. There are a few "educated guesses" or "assumptions," but those situations are clearly listed as such. Thus it is imperative that you so please return the favor if copying any of this down -- otherwise, people will take it as "gospel" fact. I hope you benefit from this webpage.

The Goals of this Site:
1) to promote awareness of our family history,
2) to encourage interaction between Hallmark descendants, and
3) to eliminate doublework and reoccurring errors that are out there.

Subjects covered, in Order of Appearance:

Part 1: The History of George Hallmark (w/ timeline at end)

Part 2: The 10 "Branches" of the Hallmark Family

Part 3: The Hallmark Historical Quarterly (not publushed anymore)

Part 4: Hallmark Family Association (HFA)

Part 5: Latest Family News (as of Summer 2004) Good Stuff!


(a summarized timeline appears at the end of this narrative)

Introduction: George Hallmark, the presumed progenitor of all the Hallmarks in the United States, is believed to have been born in 1742 in Marbury, England. He died some seventy plus years later in northern Alabama, having fathered some ten or eleven children who survived to adulthood. In 1989 there were 1231 family units with the last name of Hallmark listed in phone directories throughout the continental United States (many not listed, of course). All these families are believed to be descendants of George Hallmark and his wife Leanna Mynatt (Hallmarks Across America).
The first reference we have to George is his baptismal record dated 23 June 1742. He was listed in the church records of St. Oswald's (Anglican) Church, Malpas, England, as the "illegitimate son of Mary Hallmark", and as such was given her sirname. St. Oswald's Church rest on a small hill in the center of the small town of Malpas, Cheshire County, east of Wales. It is an old Norman town built during the Middle Ages with the duty of keeping the peace in the nearby Welsh borderlands. Inside the church at the back wall, one can still find the stone baptismal font with its oak cover on which is carved the date of 1627. It was here that the infant George Hallmark was brought to be baptized. Along the tops of the columns in the central aisle are embellished family crest. The nave ceiling has a rich array of carvings, bosses, and angels. (Malpas, Chester History Sheet 3)

George Hallmark's family lived and probably farmed in Marbury (also in Cheshire), a small rural community east southeast of Malpas. At the center of this town is St. Michael's (Anglican) Church. This was likely to have been the center of the life of the town when George lived here. St. Michael's is outwardly similar in appearance to the church at Malpas, the latter probably being used for special occasions such as baptisms and weddings. This smaller church at Marbury was used for regular services and is still used today on a regular basis by the small surrounding community. (St. Michael's Church Pamphlet)

The next reference of George can be found in the records of the Crown Court Papers, February 9, 1766, Shrewsbury, County of Shropshire, Oxford Circuit, where George is charged with stealing a linen hankerchief containing monies [money]. He pleaded "not guilty". The Summer 1764 to Lent 1767 court records show that "George Candiland, alias Hallmark" was indicted "for Felony [of] Stealing One Linnen Hankerchief Value 2d, half a sovereign in gold and eleven shillings in monies of Andrew Mansell the Younger at the Parish of Whitchurch, North Shropshire on the borders of Cheshire, 12 January, sixth year of the reign of George the Third." (1766) "Proved Guilty. No goods. To be transported for seven years... At the Assizes of Shrewsbury held 22 day March, sixth year of Lord Sovereign George III King of Great Britain..." Oxford Circuit of Crown Paper. (Source: Olwen Allmark Taylor)

In Bonded Passengers to America, 1663-1775, by Peter Wilson Coldham, a three volume set, there is a volume sub-titled "Western Oxford, Norfolk, Northern and Midland Circuits" which mentions George Hallmark. His name is to be found in Shropshire, page 57, where he is listed as "Candiland, alias Hallmark, George" or on page 60 as "Halmark, George see Candiland". It is assumed by some that Candiland was his real father's name. Olwen Allmark Taylor reports that there were families of that last name in this area at the time. There is no evidence, however, to support or dispute this supposition which has been further perpetuated by entry into the Ancestral File, TN Vers. 4.2, of the Latter Day Saints Genealogy Files. The ship of his transport is not given [though it is possible to narrow it down to several ships that left during this time frame; we are still studying that]. It is assumed that he served his seven years as an indentured servant, in the colony of Virginia. We do not know what plantation yet, and we cannot be sure that it was the same one that his father-in-law was on -- the Lee Family's -- since the dates are different. The best way to find out would be to indentify the ship and destinations, but that will take a lot of time and work.

The first documented reference to George Hallmark in America was in Virginia in what is now Botetourt County (briefly called Fincastle County, Fincastle County was created in 1772 from Botetort and abolished in 1777) ), though Botetourt County of that period covered extensive parts of western Virginia and the lands that would become Kentucky. More recent finds have indicated that George lived in the part of Botetourt County that would soon become Montgomery County -- two counties south of today's Botetourt County. It is in these parts, though some conflicting locations seem to exist, where he appeared on a list of delinquent tax payers returned by Daniel Trigg, Deputy Sheriff for the year 1773. At a court held for "Fincastle" December 6, 1774, a list of delinquents in the New River and Reed Creek Area was recorded by the court as that part containing tithables that ought to be received by the vestry of the Parish of Botetort. "George Holmark" [Hallmark] was on this list. (Kegley, pp. 103-06) The New River and Reed Creek area appear to put George further south, in today's Wythe County, though one has to take these references carefully. It is possible that he was there at this period, then came back north to the said Montgomery County area. There is no proof yet that he owned land in Montgomery County, but several land descriptions of other owners' land list [George] Hallmark as being adjacent. They also mention his father-in-law, Richard Mynatt, who did own some land nearby. Connecting all the descriptions, it seems clear that George and Richard lived a mile or so west of today's Christianburg, near Crab Creek. Maybe George lived on Richard's land, though I am only guessing at this point. Richard was older, and apparantly a little more established. (my assumption again)

By circa 1773, George had married or "taken up" with Leannah Mynatt. There appears to be no recorded documentation of a marriage. Marriages at this time, however, were performed by the Episcopal Church (or Anglican while under England) and were very expensive, often not within the means of most people. Leannah was the daughter of Richard Mynatt and Sarah Cummings, also English immigrants. Richard had come to America several years before George, as an indentured servant (an indentured servant was different than a bonded servant, which George was). Richard had been indentured at the age of 20 for four years as a cook to the honorable Thomas Lee, Esquire of Virginia. He earned eight pounds sterling per year cooking in the kitchen of the Lee's, a good wage for a cook. His place in history is secured by his being the first indentured servant to sue successfully for release from his master, Phillip Ludwell Lee, heir of Thomas Lee, July 31, 1754. (Kamikaw and Westmoreland Orders)

George Hallmark's claim for payment for services rendered as a drover [driver] and butcher during the American Revolution were ordered to be paid at a meeting of the Botetourt County Court, on April 11, 1782.(Public Service Claims, Botetourt Court, p19) Again on July 30, 1783 George Hallmark was granted a warrant for horsehire services to the militia in January of 1781. (Public Service Claims Commission Book I, p166) According to DAR documentation of Mary Spence Wooters, DAR National #562047, George "rendered patriotic service in Botetourt County, Va." She cites the same reference, page 167. It would appear that George had trouble getting paid for delivering goods to the militia of our revolutionary army. It also appears than some of his property was lost.

According to a list of North Carolina Land Grants in what was then called "The Western Lands", #1843 shows that George received 350 acres "on both sides of Lick Creek" (in what is now Greene County, TN). At this time the land was in the old state of Franklin, which existed from 1784 to 1788 (though never admitted to the United States as a state). On June 7, 1783, in the state of North Carolina, John Armstrong, Entry Officer of Claims in the Western Lands, issued warrant #254 which was a request for a land survey for Geo. Hallmark's homestead. The land survey warrant was entered on October 22, 1783. The survey was made on December 10, 1784. On September 20, 1787 George was [officially] granted his land. He paid ten pounds British Sterling for each hundred acres of land. (NC land Grants in TN, 1787, Greene Co.)

On February 8, 1792, George sold his land on Lick Creek. He sold the 140 acres on the north side of the creek to Andrew McFerran for forty-five pounds Sterling and 210 acres on the south side to John Blair for one hundred pounds. (Greene Co. TN land records book)

After selling his land in Greene County, TN, George Hallmark and family moved further west into Grainger County. In 1792 he was a member of the first church founded in Grainger County, established by the Baptists in 1788 at the mouth of the Richland River in what is now the town of Blaine. Today's Richland church is several miles from the original location of the church, which was lierally by the mouth of the said creek. "The names of the first members could not be ascertained, but the delegates to the (Baptist or Holston) Association in 1794"...included George Hallmark. (Goodspeed's History of TN; and Richland Baptist Church Minutes) George served as a clerk of Richland Baptist Church from October 2, 1792 (when he and his wife first appear in the minutes) until at least August 8, 1795. The minutes which survive actually begin on April 11, 1791,and end August 8, 1795. (note George's appointment as "clerk" spelled in the English fashion, as "clark") Mentioned in the minutes are other familiar family names--William Mynatt (Leannah's brother) and his wife Lileah or Lydia, David Satterwhite, Samuel and Kiziah Hughes, and Edward Freels. (there is no direct mention of Richard Mynatt in these minutes, or any of George's children).

Records from Virgil White's "Index to Volunteer Soldiers, 1784-1811" show George Sr., and sons William, Thomas, and George Jr. being part of the Knox County Regiment, Hamilton District Militia, for the Territory South of the Ohio, for the period 1792-4. This was during the heighth of the so-called Miami War, 1790-95 (sometimes called Little Turtle's Uprising), an often forgotten about episode in the early years of the U.S. What service this Knox Co. regiment did during this period is still to be determined, though a close study of the Richland Church minutes might indicate some clues, since it seems that George was present at most every meeting. Thus the duty of the unit may have been purely local. All four Hallmarks were listed as "privates," though Thomas was also listed as "trumpeter," which many found interesting. I do not know where son John was in all of this, since he was of the correct age for duty (he was actually older than brother George Jr., who is listed). It is possible he stayed at home to watch the family, perhaps because he was not well enough to go like the others. Maybe he had already moved somewhere else by this time. This is only speculation.]

In the 1795 minutes for February 14th and March 14th church meetings, it is mentioned that the Hallmark and the Mynatt families were authorized to have "a letter of Dismission" from the church. They were moving on, but apparently did not do so at least until after August 8th, 1795 as George remained clerk through that time. (TN Ancestors transcripts, Aug 1987)

No record has been found of George's ownership of any land while attending Richland Baptist in Grainger County, from February 1792 until he purchased land in Knox County in August 1795. Travel was slow and arduous at this time, and it is likely that they lived somewhere in the vicinity of Richland Baptist, near Blaine in Grainger County, possibly with a relative. Some have speculated that he and Leanah lived with Richard Mynatt. But the fact that Richard does not appear in any of the church minutes takes away from this theory. Grainger County officials have recently uncovered a lot of county documents from the 1790's, so some of these (when organized) may reveal that George owned some land after all. We can only wait.

A record dated August 21, 1795, shows that George Hallmark purchased 400 acres in Knox County from Joseph Beard, near Roseberry Creek, which is south of the church location. (Knox Co. TN land records, book B 1, pp. 286-7) This is about the time the Richland minutes end. In 1797, George Hallmark was listed as a founding member of the Little Flat Creek Baptist Church in Knox County (Flat Creek is now called Corryton, about ten miles west of Blaine). Little Flat Creek Church was organized August 18, 1797, with John Parker as moderator and George Hallmark as clerk. It may be the oldest church congregation in the county still in existence. The minutes for this church are very brief, and barely constitute true minutes. The first page covers 1797 to about 1801 or so. I have been told that some of the other minutes and items were destroyed in a later dispute. The original log cabin church structure has been restored and is located behind the present church building. Services are still held in it every Easter. The original location of the church was actually a mile or so to the west, where a set of railroad tracks cross the highway (Emory Road). R.C. Harlin and wife (whose maiden name is Mynatt) live by the original location. Some of the land in the Flat Creek area belonged to the Mynatt Family, and in 1826, Martin Mynatt reserved an acre where the newer church stands. A newer section of cemetery also exists next to the old 1826 section (its all the same cemetery). There is also a smaller graveyard by the original location of the church (by the tracks), though the markers are all missing, and others were destroyed by the railroad track bed many years ago. It seems that no Hallmarks or Mynatts are in this smaller cemetery (by the tracks), according to Knox County cemetery records, though it is possible. If Leanah or Thomas were buried at Little Flat Creek, then this would be the location, since the 1826 section was not in use at the time (nor was the church there yet). Many believe that she and Thomas are actually buried at the Mynatt Family Cemetery on the Knox County-Grainger County line, near the end of the Clinch Mountain range. Richard Mynatt is also believed to be buried there, though I cannot proove any of this at this time. The minutes of the Little Flat Creek Church show that on the third Saturday of October of 1799, George Hallmark was selected to be ordained a Deacon of that church on July 3, 1801. (History of Little Flat Creek Church 1797-1986 and also 1981 newspaper article on same, pg176 of notes of Miss Mary Hallmark and Fred McCaleb)

"On the 25th of December 1802 delegates from nineteen Baptist Churches, formerly belonging to the Holston Association, assembled at Beaver Creek Meeting-house in Knox County, (about 8 miles further west down Emory Road, on today's outskirts of Knoxville) and organized the Tennesee Baptist (or River) Association, depending on which source you read. The Reverend William Johnson was chosen moderator and Francis Hamilton, clerk...Of the nineteen churches represented, five were located in Knox County. They were Beaver Ridge, Hickory Creek, Fork of Holston, French Broad, and Little Flat Creek represented by Richard Newport, Eli Scraggs, and George Hallmark..." In 1803 George was again a delegate from Flat Creek to the Association, and the church was reported to have thirty-six members. Again in 1804, George was among the delegates from Flat Creek, reported to have sixty-two members. In October of 1805, the church had fifty-two members, with the Reverend William Johnson at its head. George Hallmark and the Reverend Johnson were delegates to the [1805] meeting.(Goodspeed's History of Tennessee, pp. 898-99; The French Broad-Holston Country: A History of Knox County TN by the East TN Historical Society, 1946; and Brief Baptist Biographies, 1707-1982 by Robert Hamby)

Thomas Hallmark is shown buying 70 acres acres in about 1801 in the western part of Knox County, near the Beaver Creek area. It looks like his brother William witnessed the transaction, though the name was hard to make out. But William amazingly appeared on a 1799 tax list from Henderson County, Kentucky (some distance away!), in relation to a grant of land near "Race Creek" in Henderson County, KY. The distance and time is hard to explain and problematic of sortd -- though possible. He (William) also appears in Alabama later. So trying to figure out when William is in Tenessee, Kentucky, and/or Alabama has always been difficult and confusing. He is also usually figured as the oldest of the 9 Hallmark brothers, though some have speculated that Thomas was really the oldest. We've never really been able to confirm who came first, though we do know that Thomas was the first to die (while still in Tenessee -- see below). Back to Thomas, he appears in a number of court cases from about 1801 to 1805 in Knox County, some of it having to do with the above mentioned land. He is believed to have died around 1805, about the time of these court cases, so one is ked to wonder if there might be a connection or just a coincident. Though the 70 acres is at the extreme opposite end of Knox County from the Mynatt Cemetery (near Clinch Mountain), most feel he is probably buried there. We really do not know at this time. But as mentioned above, we do know that he was the first of the 10 children to die. Fortunately he was married and had a number of children to carry on the line of his branch. (Fred McCaleb, Adam Hallmark, and many others descend from this branch). On January 29, 1806, George sold his 400 acres in Knox County to George Faust for $800. (Knox County Land Records, Book M 1, pp. 87-88) George Hallmark was listed again in Knox County, TN in 1806 as a member of Captain John Reynold's Company. This is a group of property owners organized into military like units for the purpose of tax collection. George was listed because he owed taxes on the property that he owned the previous year. (Volume 26, East TN Historical Society Publ. of Early East TN Taxpayers, 1806, compiled by Pollyanna Creekmore, Knox Co., TN)

Little mention is made of George's wife Leannah Mynatt Hallmark who spent her life with George and bore him one daughter and perhaps as many as ten surviving sons. She is listed along with her brother and sister-in-law, William and Lileah Mynatt, in the minutes of the Richland Baptist Church in 1795 as a signer of the "Regeler Baptist Church Covenant". According to Paul Henderson's account, Leannah died and was buried in the Mynatt Family Cemetery, Knox County, TN. (ie. probably the one near Clinch Mountain, on the Knox-Grainger County line) Leanah does not appear on the few records we have of Little Flat Creek Church in Knox County, though that does not completely rule-out her presence there. It is assumed that she died shortly before the family left Knox County, c. 1805-1806, perhaps serving as the catalyst for George selling his Knox County land that year (see Jan 29, 1806 above). She may have died sooner, since she does not appear in the Flat Creek records, as mentioned earlier. She may have died before ever making it to Knox County, though I suspect she at least made it that far, and probably died about the same time as Thomas (her son) died. Maybe both deaths were related. Thomas' wife eventually remarried and moved to Alabama, where she is buried. We will just have to study this longer and in more detail, since many hope to place a marker for both of them. We also need to work on their death years.

An interesting obituary for Richard Mynatt appears in a Nashville newspaper in 1826, saying that he died in Knox County. I've seen his death date as 1824 as well, so there seems to be a typo somewhere. Nonetheless, he was getting close to 100 in either case. He owned land in Knox County (probably near the cemetery on the county line), though the deed does not give enough detail to know for sure. Several people in Knox County have commented on how the Mynatts in the area are known for living a long time. Maybe this validates that claim. Richard is also shown as being a doorkeeper for the Territorial Legislature during this period, which met in Knoxville for these years. Maybe an old official that remembered him placed the obituary in the Nashville newspaper. Maybe the family put it there to notify somebody in Nashville.

It seems the Hallmarks left Knox County soon after 1806, though we cannot put an exact year on it yet. In an 1809 account of a Rhea County,TN newspaper (though I have been told that there were no newspapers in this county at this date, so maybe it was a diary account or something), mention is made of 'passing by' the old Hallmark place. Apparently George and his family, probably after Leannah's death, had lived there for a while, but were gone by that year.

By 1809 they were located in the "Mississippi Territory" (which later became Madison County, Alabama) according to the territorial census of adult men. George Hallmark was listed as a taxpayer as were sons George, Richard, and William. All four applied for land that year, though it seems that George Sr. was the only one who actually received his land. (it was a credit system, so many were not able to follow through). Maybe they all "chipped-in" to help their father get his, but this is only speculation. George's land was located about 8 miles southeast of present-day Huntsville, in today's outskirts of the city. The final patent was issued by the U.S. government in 1814, about the time George died (though he may have already been dead, if he died as early as 1812, wgich some speculate). The 1816 Madison County, Mississippi Territory census [or taxt list] lists a George and Richard Hallmark. Some have assumed that this was George "Sr." but it is more likely to have been his son since only one George was mentioned, and no reference was made to "junior" or "senior," as in previous documents. But this particular census is really a tax list, and the section for Madison County was really taken in "1813" not 1816, as the title would suggest. Numerous Knox County officials and historians have verified this fact. Thus we think he was dead by 1813, though we cannot be for sure. His son George appears to have sold his fathers land in 1813, probably right after his death. The land was sold to his neighbor, J. Fennel. Both George and Fennel (who died soon after) were buried on there land, in a small portion on the line between their two properties -- probably agreed to by them. The Federal census of 1820 did not list a George in (the father) George's age group. It is assumed, therefore, that George died prior to the census. [many are now estimating 1812 or 1813; His burial place has only recently been discovered, which was on his land in Madison Co., though he and several others were relocated to the nearby Hobbs Cemetery in July of 1975, because of housing development. There is currently an effort under way to get him a Revolutionary service marker at that new location, and the government agency has approved the request and is in the process of making the marker. We hope to have it in place by the end of 2004, or at least the Spring of 2005]

George Hallmark traveled from England to Alabama, from Anglicanism to Primitive Baptist, from convicted criminal to avid church member. He was a citizen of the times who was strong enough to flourish in this wilderness country. I admire his perserverance and spirit. I am proud to be his descendant.

TIMELINE SUMMARY OF GEORGE HALLMARK (Like the narrative above, this timeline is based on documented facts, with any necessary speculation or educated guesses being clearly listed as such. Anybody repeating any of this material needs to always make that distinction. Once somebody copies something down as a fact, such as changing an approximate date into an exact one, the error tends to spreads like a virus, and can never be fully fixed)

1742 - George Hallmark is born, Marbury, Cheshire Co., England. Baptized in June.

1766 - George indicted for stealing a handkerchief containing about a dollars worth of money; sentenced (sent) to America as a bonded servant for 7 years, presumably to one of the king's plantations in Virginia. We have no record of which plantation he was to be sent; the exact ship he was sent on has not been ascertained either, though records show 3 ships carrying bonded passengers during the appropriate timeframe: Ann, Justitia, and Tryal. Some have guessed that it might have been the Ann because of its Lent '66 departure date.

c1766 ? 1773 - George presumably serves his time, though we have no record of exactly where he served or if he served the full time. Some have speculated that it was the Lee Plantation ("Stratford Hall") in Westmoreland Co, VA, though this speculation is based on the fact that his future father-in-law served there during the early 1750s. But his father-in-law's service at Stratford had been as an indentured servant (a little different than a bonded servant), and was served more than ten years before George even arrived in America. So we really have no way of knowing where George served his time for sure. At some point in the early 70s, he marries (or he had "taken up with") Leannah Mynatt, who was born in 1756 VA, two years after her father had gained his freedom. She is almost certainly born in Prince William County, VA since her parents married there the previous year, and remained there until about '64. Later they lived in Hampshire Co, VA (now WV) until about '69, then in Dunmore Co, VA (later renamed Shenandoah Co.) until about '71, and in Botetorte Co, VA until the ?80s. George could have met her in either Dunmore or Botetorte, though most tend to lean on the latter. George's first two known children are supposedly born during this period: William (usually listed as c1770) and Thomas (usually listed as c1773), though the exact years and locations cannot be exactly verified. There is also a 2-3 year gap that exist until George's next child, thus the birth dates could be later. Furthermore, if George's sentence did not end until ?73, then any "marriage" or "births" prior to that date may have been kept somewhat hidden -- that is of course assuming that they were together prior to that date. In concluding this broad time period, George (and any family) moves west to Botetorte Co, VA at some point in the early 1770s.

1773 - George and family is most assuredly in Botetorte Co, VA (called Fincastle Co. from '72-77), as George is listed on a tax delinquency list there, as well as a related-type list the following year.

1776 - Still in Botetorte (or Fincastle) Co, VA, George's third known child is born, John. (birth year sometimes given as ?75) The United States also declares its independence on July 4 and the Revolutionary War begins in earnest -- though fighting had already started the year before.

c1778 - Still in Botetorte Co, VA, George's fourth known child is born, George William.

1780 - George renders service as a drover (driver) and butcher to a party of militia during the war.

1781 - George renders horsehire services to the militia during the war. The fighting phase of the war also ends this year after Cornwallis' surrender at Yorktown, VA in October. (peace treaty still two years away!)

1782 - George's claim for payment for the drover and butcher service is ordered to be paid by the Botetorte County Court in April; we can only assume that he receives his payment and was still living in Botetorte Co.

1783 - George is granted a warrant for the horsehire services he rendered (above). The war also officially ends this year with signing of the Treaty of Paris, which gave the U.S. all the land to the Mississippi River. George and his family eventually begin migrating west, either this year or soon after, possibly staying in adjacent Montgomery Co, VA for a period (no concrete proof), and ultimately to the new so-called "Western Lands," more specifically to Greene County (then under the jurisdiction of NC, but later on as part of the short-lived state of Franklin from 84-88, and finally as a permanent county in TN, ?88-on ? very confusing for researchers). This area is supposedly one that had been set aside for bounty land grants for service during the war. In June of this year, George request a land survey for his homestead (to which he must have already laid claim and possibly on which he had already settled). The request appears to be approved in October of this year. Once again, it is not clear where the family was during all of this process.

1784 - The land survey is made in December. George then has to wait almost 3 years for the official title (deed).

c1785 - George's fifth known child is born, Richard. The date of his birth has ranged from ?85-90, while the location has ranged from Botetorte Co, Montgomery Co, Green Co, to Knox Co. I lean toward Green, while any Knox reference seems very improbable. It is also interesting to note that the delay in child births before Richard might have been due to the war years and the family's migration.

1787 - George is officially granted his new land in Greene County, "350 acres on both sides of Lick Creek including his improvements," which seems to indicate that they were already settled and living there.

1789 - George's father-in-law (Richard Mynatt) supposedly acquires 300 acres in Montgomery Co, VA this year, described in the deed as being adjacent to the Hallmarks. This leaves one to wonder if the Hallmarks had left VA yet, or if they still just owned the land that they had left behind. Maybe they left one or two behind for a while.

c1790 - While in Greene Co., TN, George's sixth known child is born, Mary "Polly" ? his only known girl. George's oldest son, William, marries Nancy Freels about this time, though the dates are sketchy. Their first child is also born not long after, the dates and locations of which are also very sketchy and sometimes contradictory. Though some references still list Botetorte Co, I feel that the child was born in Green Co, and probably in the early 90s.

1792 - George sells his land in Greene Co. and moves further west to Grainger Co., TN. In the town of Blaine, the family becomes members of the Richland Baptist Church, the first church to be founded in this county. George begins serving as church clerk for about 3 years. Some Mynatts, Freels, Satterwhites and Hughes are also members.

1793 - While apparently still in Grainger Co, TN, George's seventh & eighth known children (twins) are born, Mynatt and Jessie ? both born on 8 October (some references say Knox Co.).

1794 - Still in Grainger Co., George serves as a one of the delegates to the (Baptist or Holston) Association. George's second son, Thomas, marries Susannah Mynatt about this time. Their first child is born in November (either in Grainger or Knox Co).

1795 - In February and March, George's family is authorized to have a "letter of Dismission" from the church in Grainger County. George's job as clerk ends later that year in August, when the family seems to actually leave (presumably for Knox Co). That same month, George purchases 400 acres in Knox Co., TN.

1797 - Definitely in Knox Co, TN, George is listed as a founding member of the Little Flat Creek Baptist Church (modern-day Corryton, TN). The church also seems to be part of the Holston Association (as their previous church had been). He also begins serving as clerk of the church this year, as he had at the previous church. The Mynatt family is also in the area and part of the church. While in Knox Co, George's ninth known child is born, Cummins. (I have seen his birth date listed as early as '95, though '97 matches up with a future obituary) A newspaper in Knoxville about this time stated that George had 2 horses stolen by Indians.

1799 - Still in Knox Co, George is selected by the Little Flat Creek Baptist Church to be ordained a deacon in October, though he is not actually ordained for another year and a half (see below).

1800 - The new century finds the family still in Knox Co, TN (modern-day Corryton area) The famous 2nd Great Awakening (religious revival) in America is also starting to sweep the frontier, including these parts. One has to wonder how all of this might have affected the family and the Little Flat Creek Baptist Church.
There is also some evidence that makes it look as though George's oldest son, William, migrated to western Kentucky about this time. Further study will reveal that this probably did not occur for another ten years, especially since an ?09 territorial census has William listed in northeast Alabama, with the rest of the family. (maybe he had gone on some exploratory trips out there to see if he liked it)

1801 - Still in Knox Co, TN, George is actually ordained a Deacon of Little Flat Creek Baptist Church on 3 July. Furthermore, George's third and fourth sons are married about this time in Knox Co. -- John marries Amey Satterwhite (born 1785) and George William marries Sarah Calvert (born c1780). The latter union possibly occurred the year before, so keep that in mind. George and Sarah have their first child in September of this year(in Knox Co), while John and Amey apparantly leave with her family and migrate into GEORGIA (about this time), having their first child there the following year. Contrary to earlier studies, John, Amey, and her family did not go straight to Harris County,GA where most of their children have been traditionally listed as being born. Harris County had not been formed yet and was still part of Indian lands. New evidence shows that they traveled down the Savannah River and entered Georgia from the East, participating in a number of land lotteries that Georgia officials put on in order to quickly settle recently acquired Indian lands. They lost a few, but also won a few. Only later did they end up in Jones and Harris counties of Georgia. Overall, John and his bunch lived in Georgia for around 30 years. After that, he and his family went with two of his other brothers (George William and Richard of AL) to Texas, which is a whole other story!

1802 - George and Leannah are still in Knox Co,TN. George is among the delegates from 19 different Baptist churches in the region (formerly belonging to the Holston Association) that meet in December to organize the new Tennessee Baptist (or River) Association.

1803-1805 - Still in Knox Co, George serves each year as a delegate for the Little Flat Creek Baptist Church at the association meetings. George's second son, Thomas, also dies this year in Knox Co. (I have heard the tale that it was by Indians, though there is no evidence that I know of to substantiate this). It is also possible that George's wife, Leannah, dies either in ?05 or the next. Her father's will from '05 does not mention her, so I lean toward this year. Most believe that she is buried in the cemetery by the church, which later becomes the Mynatt Cemetery. Thus it is also very possible that Thomas is buried there, especially since his wife was also a Mynatt (she remarries a William Irwin in December).

1806 - George is listed as owing taxes on his property in Knox Co. On January 29, George sells his 400 acres. There is no concrete evidence if he stayed a while or moved-on immediately. (see 1807 below)
1807 George's fifth son, Richard, marries Mary Ann Prewitt in Roane Co., TN (southwest of Knox Co). It appears that Richard and probably the rest of the family had moved that direction, though neighboring Rhea Co. seems to be where they actually settled. (see 1809 references below)
1808 I am guessing that George and the family moved either this year or the year before from Rhea county down to the northeastern part of Alabama, roughly following a southwestward route along (or even on) the Tennessee River. An enlightening newspaper article from Rhea County, the following year, has someone mentioning, "passing by the old Hallmark place" in Rhea Co. Obviously the Hallmarks had left.

1809 - George and most of the family are in the area of today's Madison Co, AL, then part of the so-called Mississippi Territory. The census of adult men taken early this year shows 4 heads of household: George (listed as "George Sr."), George William (listed as "George Jr." and listed immediately after his father, possibly indicating residence), Richard, and William. (my evidence points to William moving to KY the following year, not any earlier, as has sometimes been surmised). Only numbers are given next to the heads of household, so one must guess who represents each number. As for the other siblings: Thomas had already died, John was in Georgia. Mary might be listed in George Sr's household, if she was over 21. In reality, she could easily be somewhere between the ages of 19 or 20-something, based on her birthyear, which we are not sure about. She seems to be listed as an "a female over 21," along with another that we cannot identify. We know for sure that Mary was about to marry Isaac Stidham in November (in Madison County), since we have a marriage certificate for them. It is possible that they had unofficially married before that, but we do not know. All I know is that no females "under 21" were listed next to George Sr., while 2 females "over 21" were. Mynatt and Jessie were 15, Cummins was 11, and Carter is a mystery. The census only list 3 males "under 21." So it is possible that Carter was still not born yet, or in the womb, since the dates often given for his birth range from 1800-1810, according to which sources you look at (and none of these birthdates conflict with his future marriage or children). That leads us to ask, who was his mother, if he was born after the 1809 Census? Could it be the other female "over 21" that is listed in George Sr's household? Did George Sr. marry a second time after Leannah's death -- setting a precedent that many of his sons and grandsons would follow? There is no way to know yet, though that is one way to answer the unusual census numbers. More study must be done here.

1810-15 - Most researchers assume that George died during this time period, in Madison Co., AL. Both "George Sr." and "George Jr." are shown on a 1811 tax list. He is not found in any later documents, including a territorial census of ?16, although two of his sons are. If he were alive, he would be pushing age 70 by 1812, and 73 by 1815. Ironically, the so-called "territorial census" mentioned above is really a tax list for every county in Miss. Territory, compiled between 1815-16. The one list used for Madison County was actually taken from an 1813 tax list, since that county did not have to pay taxes for several years afterwards (because of bad times). It is all very confusing, though it seems safe to say that "George Sr." was missing from the 1813 tax list. But naturally that does not absolutely prove that he was dead yet. But in a telling clue, the same 1813 tax list does show that the "Jr" has been dropped from the remaining "George" on the list, never to be seen again after his name on other lists after that time.
So assuming that he died during this time period is pretty logical. This other George (without a "sr" or "jr" next to his name) also is commissioned Justice of the Peace in 1812, and also served on the Superior Court for the county and several other functions it seems.

Our deceased George ("sr") was buried on his 160 acres (Range 1 east, Township 5 South, Section 4), which was common practice back then, and since no cemeteries existed yet. George ("jr") sold the 160 acres (of his late father) in 1816 to James Fennell, who owned the adjacent neighboring land. This James Fennell dies the following year and unsuprizingly buried in the same small cemetery. But by that time, however, it appears that the Hallmarks had left for other counties to the south. The cemetery eventually became known as Fennel, probably because he got a normal marker that was readable, but maybe because the Hallmarks became a distant memory. George seems to have recieved a field stone, known only to his family (who moved away) and maybe a few Fennels (who would have eventually forgot). Maybe George did get a decent marker, which got lost later, or maybe the kids intended to get him one later, but never did. But about 160 years later, both George Sr. and James Fennell (and a few others buried there) were eventually legally and properly relocated to the nearby Hobbs Cemetery (in 1975 I believe)due to housing development of the time, but maybe more importantly to a very determined Fennell descendant who kept on top of the whole matter and made sure everything was done correctly (and not just destroyed quietly when nobody was looking, which happened to many other small and often forgotten cemeteries of this nature in Alabama).

That is currently where their remains are, according to Madison County historians and other sources. Efforts to get a Revolutionary War service marker for George Hallmark (Sr).was successful, and it was placed in 2006 at this location (Hobbs Cem.), in the spot where historians of Madison Co. believe he was relocated. George's former neighbor, James Fennel (who bought George's land and died the next year), already had a nice readable marker (from the older location), though it has not been placed in the Hobbs Cemetery yet (as of 2006). Last check, it was currently being stored in the Huntsville Library. I presume they plan to place it in Hobbs as well.

A more official ceremony for George's marker is being planned for Spring 2006, though no date has been set yet. I will try and post it here when I learn it. All in all, we are endeavoring on getting all the 10 children of George and Leannah nice burial markers, if they do not already have one. So far, only John and Richard have one. John's was put up later, and I believe Richard's too -- either in place of no marker at all, or one that got lost. George William supposedly had a nice one, but it was lost / destroyed around 1920 by careless and unconcerned road development. There is a fund right now in Crockett, TX to get him something nicer, but location will be tricky, due to similar circumstances as his father. Thomas has a very crude cement temporary marker in Knox Co, TN, next to his mother, who has a marker of the same crude and temporary design. We placed them in the main Mynatt cemetery, though further research will be needed to decide on the definitive burial spot (2 Mynatt cem's exists!), as well as exact details for any kind of fancier marker (such as the ones for the above mentioned brothers). William (the often presumed oldest brother), is believed to be buried in Henderson Co., KY, possibly Bethel Cem., Hebborsville, maybe near "Race Creek." We may put another homemade cement crude marker in Bethel until further research can find something more helpful. To do nothing will cause everything to be forgotten.

Mary, the only daughter is supposedly in Shottsville Cem., Marion Co., AL. Mynatt supposedly in Blount Co. AL, Jessie supposedly in Belmont, MS, Tishomingo Co. (I have seen no marker for either). Cummings might have a marker already in Howelton, Etowah Co., AL., though I've never looked. Carter (the youngest), is supposedly buried in Blount Co., AL., like Mynatt. I've never seen a marker, but have not searched greatly. But if he had one, somebody would have reported it by now. Probably another victum of development, if he ever had something more than a field stone. (and even those were not immune to bulldozers. They are probably at greater risk because they have no writing on them). Any help in locating these and getting normal markers would be greatly appreciated by all.

Timeline prepared by James C. Hallmark of Crockett, TX (Email:


The 10 branches of the Hallmark Family is based on the 10 known children of our primogeniture, George Hallmark (1742-1809/15), and his wife Leannah. The majority of this list comes from Paul Henderson's 1998 Hallmark Family Listings, first published in 1992. George, as mentioned in the first part of this homepage, came to America, married, and had ten children -- the first generation of Hallmarks in America. Following are those ten children that make up that first generation (in bold print), and from what other information we have, the two generations that came afterwards (these separated by either one period "." or by five "....."). We have also attempted to mention (in parenthesis) how many known children came from each of the last generation we listed. Keep in mind, this is a list in progress and is not complete or absolutely correct in every way, but is still the best we have. We are sorry that we did not list any further generations, but all these get pretty crowded for one webpage. We do have more at home. Abbreviations include: m=married (only once); m1/m2...=married multiple times; c=circa or approximately; n.d.=no date)

Thomas Hallmark (born ca.1773 in VA, died ca.1805 in TN, while still fairly young; some have listed Thomas as the oldest son, which is possible, according to what birth dates you go by) m Susannah Mynatt:
(most say that he is buried Knox Co., TN; probably in Mynatt Family Cemetery, where his mother is also supposedly buried; probably just marked with a field stone, if anything at at. I do not really know; wife remarried on Dec 20, 1806 to William Irwin, then moved to AL later. She is buried there, and it is marked. We are trying to get him a marker, but we aren't sure about the death date or his burial location. He might qualify for something military, since he was listed as "trumpetor" in the Knox County militia, along with his father and several brothers. See narrative for more)

(Some have listed 1776 as his birthdate, though that could be a misprint or wishful thinking because of the significance of that year; the family Bible says 1776, though it appears to have been written later-on, by descendants; the debate still go on. Both buried in the "Old" Shady Grove Cem., Houston Co.,TX, not the "newer" one on highway; both received a marker several years ago via the Hallmark Family Association)
