Cedric Dayton Hall, along with his Twin Brother Roderick, was born in Pierre to Virgil and Verna (Campbell) Hall on April 1, 1937. He was raised in the Joe Creek area. He attended school at Busy Bee School, St. Joseph Indian Boarding School and graduated from Stephan high school. Cedric married Lorita Lawrence, his boarding school sweet heart, on April 16, 1957. They moved to Dallas, Texas in 1959 where him and Rod attended Barber School. They had 4 children Janell, Karla, Lisa and Halsey. While in Texas he also broke and trained horses.
