Hall lived most of his life in Independence, Virginia. He was strong in physique and was known in that section as "Big Cal". He was of a kind disposition and thereby gained the friendship of one and all. He visited his people in Johnson County, Kentucky, in 1908, which was the only time that any of this set of people ever visited the Johnson County set. Uncle Calvin spent some time with his folks in Nebraska. But when he became old and death was not far distant, he returned to his old old homestead at Independence, where he died. He and his wife are buried in the church cemetery near the home of their son Alex, not far from Independence, Virginia. Mr. Hall volunteered and served in the Civil War."
