Nathaniel Hall owned a 500-acre plantation in Savannah called Morton's Hall. On June 13, 1782 when it was offered for sale by the Executive Committee handling the colonies affairs after the war. Mrs. Hannah Gibbons, a member of the wealthy Gibbons families owning extensive plantations near Savannah and in Liberty County, purchased the acreage for 8 pds: 2 shillings per acre. Thus, this Savannah site, situated north west of the city, disappeared from the records except to be listed in the Gibbon's estates in Chatham County.
