Service information from Davis1 and Simpson,2 who says he was killed outright at Sharpsburg. His first name and wound detail also from a 22 September casualty list by Lt. Col. Work published in the Galveston News of 1 November 1862. Details from family genealogists.
He probably changed his name from Granville L. Hall sometime after he married Luvinia Adeline Robinson/Robertson (1837-1927, gravesite via Findagrave) in 1852. They had 4 children together, the last, daughter Hesta, born about 1862.
