Hugh Hall was born in Massachusetts in about 1772. He was a regular army veteran, having originally enlisted in 1798. He had penchant for spirituous liquor, which together with other army infractions resulted in court marshal penalties that were not of sufficient severity to dismiss him from the party. Clark apparently lost contact with him in later years, as he is not recorded on Clark's 1825-1828 “List of Men on Lewis and Clark's Trip.”
