John Hall was an Elder in Short Creek MM in the early 1800s who had dozens of descendants in Ohio YM.
Near the end of 1835, Hall visited with Elisha Bates. He was concerned that the ongoing disruptive behavior of Bates could lead to a division. Under the circumstances, Hall asked Bates if he would consider keeping silent during worship until the situation calmed down. Rather than recognizing this as an expression of appropriate concern by an Elder, Bates rejected the counsel (Elisha Bates, An Examination of Certain Proceedings and Principles of the Society of Friends Called Quakers, page 84).
Hall then served on the committee to visit Bates when the initial complaint was brought against him for disunity (Bates, Examination, page 135).
