Sources (n.b., Carroll Co. was formed from Baltimore and Frederick Cos. in 1837):

1.  1790 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com):
1790 PA Huntingdon Co. p. 123 William Hall 02-01-04-00-00
There is only one William HALL in the county, and his data do not fit our subject. 

2.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312).  Please see my WARNING regarding use of this database (the numerical data have the genders switched). 
1800 Hall, William PA Huntingdon Co. p. 146 10010-3001000
These data should read:
30010-10010-00
which indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
3 males 9 or under 1790-1800 = Obadiah (b. 1797)
= Amos (b. 1794)
= Joel (b. 1792)
1 male 26-44 1755-1774 = William (b. 1767)
1 female 9 or under 1790-1800 = Anna (b. 1799)
1 female 26-44 1755-1774 = Jane (b. 1767)
There was another William HALL in the county, but only this one's data fit our subject. 

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1810 (Broderbund CD-313).  Please see my WARNING regarding use of this database (the numerical data have the genders switched).

1810 Hall, William PA Fayette Co. Luzerne Twp. p. 90  
1810 Hall, William PA Greene Co. Whitely Twp. p. 35  
1810 Hall, William PA Washington Co. Hanover p. 45  
1810 Hall, William VA [now WV] Ohio Co.   p.  6 21010-2000100
There is only one William HALL in Huntingdon Co., and he is still there in 1820, so he is not our subject.  Our subject may be one of the William HALLs in southwestern PA or WV, as related families lived in the region before moving to OH.  The 1810 Ohio census was lost, so that is where our subject may be. 

4.  Family Quest Archives:  Ohio Federal Census 1820:  Clark, Coshocton, Gallia, Hocking, Huron, Knox, Lawrence, Meigs, and Monroe Counties.  Heritage Quest CD M33-88 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen).
1820 OH Knox Co. Jackson Twp. Image #143 p. 90 Wm Hall 200011-01001

1 female 10-15 1804-1810 = Elizabeth (b. 1805)
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Jane (b. 1765/6?)
Where is Samuel? Ruth? Obadiah?  The other William HALL is still back in West Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA.

1830 OH Knox Co. Jackson Twp. p. 213 Hall William 010 122 001 - 000 100 010
These data indicate:

1 male 5-9 1820-1825 = Son? B
1 male 15-19 1810-1815 = Son? A

1 female 50-59 1770-1780 = Jane (b. 1765/6?)
Jane appears to be fibbing about her age; either that or her age in the 1850 Census is wrong, which it almost has to be if the youngest boy is really her child.  See table for neighbors. 

6.   Family Quest Archives:  Ohio Federal Census 1840:  Knox County.  Heritage Quest CD M704-406 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Ruth? (b. 1812)
1 female 60-69 1770-1780 = Jane (b. 1765/6?)
Jane appears to be fibbing about her age; either that or her age in the 1850 Census is wrong.

7.  Family Quest Archives:  Ohio Federal Census 1850: Knox County.  Heritage Quest CD M432-700:  Jackson Twp., Knox Co., OH, p. 389A, 2345/2405, enumerated 19 Sep 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
William Hall 88 M Farmer    Md
Jane     " 84 F      do
Obadiah Hall 53 M   do 6000 Penn
Mahala   " 40 F      do
[Obadiah & Mahala's children]          
The location could be read as either "Ma" or "Md," but as we know Jane was born in MD, then it has to be MD.
