Hi Cindy; a further notable and worthy HALE was John HALE (1723-1806), aide-de-camp to Gen. James Wolfe, Loiseburg Cape, Breton 1758 and the plains of Abraham, Quebec, 1759. Given a warrant by King George III to raise the 17th Dragoons, later 17th Lancers. Can anyone help with any info on Company B -187TH Regt., Buffalo N.Y.? My grandfathers grandfather went down from Toronto and joined the Union Army there. I don't seem to be able to find much on this Regt., except perhaps it was volunteer and seemed to be a less than desirable place to be. John HALE was an important player in North American history. As well I do have some HALE lineage (mine) of King's Walden, Hertfordshire to 1450 that would probably effect a great many of you American cousins. Sincerely yours, Dean Hale Jr.

I am just beginning to look for my grandparents geneology. My grandfathers name was Foster Vincent HALE, from TN. He married Myrtle Mae BROWN also from TN. They moved to Texas shortly after that somewhere in the early to mid 1900's. I have no information on my grandmother, but do have sibling names of my grandfather: Claude HALE, Jessie HALE, Bessie HALE (MOATS), Thelma HALE (TRIMYER). All except Claude, moved to Texas. I know there are some family still in TN. I was told a story about a small town in TN named Hales Town, where all originated. I also know that my grandfathers ancestors fought in the civil war, resulting in the loss of a leg on one of them. I know this isn't much to go on. But maybe the town of Aransas Pass, Texas will ring a bell. My mother states that she never saw her grandparents and could not even remember a name so I really have nothing but this. Any one know or heard of these people? Please let me know. Greg Couk

This is as far back as we can prove.

1. James Washington HALE 1832-1893 (MO & IL) He married Sarah FORREST (MO) around 1850, was divorced and remarried Martha Jane GINGER in 1862 (IL) (marriage license states from IN).
2. Thomas Jefferson HALE (last son of 8 children w/ Martha) b.1883 d. 1966, married Clara Belle CURRY in 1902, IL
3. James Everett HALE (5th child of Thomas & Clara), b.1914 d. 1969, married Catherine Memory ROGERS in 1937.
4. Carolyn Marie HALE (second child of James & Catherine) b. 1940, married Eli D. KURTZ in 1969.

Obviously we need help in connecting to his parents. Am following a lead regarding a Charlotte WILKEY, who is the widow of a John HALE in KY. She remarried in 1845. In 1850 James W. and Mary E. HALE were with WILKEY's in IN. In 1860 Charlotte was with another son John (wife Sarah) in IN. No record of  John or Charlotte in 1870. Thanks for any help.

Hi. My name is Donna Hull. I am trying to find the ancestors of my gggg grandfather, John C. HALE. He was b. in Scott Co., VA on 06 Apr.1806. He married Barshaba MILLER on 12 Aug 1830. She, too, may have been born in Scott Co., VA. I do not know John's parents' or (if any) siblings' names. John and Barsheba had James Randolph b. 19 Mar 1832, William Houston and Martha Jane (twins) b. 30 Mar 1834, and John C. HALE, b. 19 Sep 1836.

John migrated to Texas before 1835 and settled in the Sabine District, which is now San Augustine County, TX. He was elected 1st. Lieut. of Company K, Col. Sherman's 2nd Regiment of Texas Volunteers. They fought in the Battle of San Jacinto, which was the battle that won Texas its independence! Unfortunately, Lt. John C. HALE was one of only nine Texans who died this battle. He is buried at the battleground. Hale Co., Texas was named in his honor....

From this line of HALE's, the only surviving child was my ggg grandmother, Martha Jane HALE. Her oldest brother James died from an injury in the Civil War, her twin died when they were 10 yrs. old, and the youngest, John C. HALE, died 11 Jan 1837. If you have any info, I would greatly appreciate it....Please e-mail me at

My name is Abbie SAHR and I live in Oregon. My father is Randy SAHR from Washington. His mother, Patricia (my grandmother) was the daughter of Elsie ALEXANDER and possibly a Troy HALE. I am not positive of the first name of Troy. They lived in Washington, either Sunnysie or Yakima. My great grandmother had two other daughters, Millie and I don't know the other name. Elsie ALEXANDER HALE remarried a man with the last name BECKER. My brother, father, aunts and I all have the same coloring that no one else in the family has that we have seen. This has piqued my curiosity of my geneology. If you have any information on this Troy(?) HALE, please e-mail me back.  Thank you, Abbie

I am looking for information about the parents and siblings of Philander HALE born 1802 in Granville, Wash. Co., NY and moved to Warsaw, Wyoming Co., NY and died 1884. He married Clara or Clarissa HATCH and they had four children: Nancy m. Daniel CLARK; Mary who married Edwin BANNISTER; Clarissa who married James JONES (my gggrandmother); and Caleb HALE who married Ruth Ann FOOTE. As far as I know his parents were Samuel HALE and Nancy NORTON who settled in Hartford, Washington Co., NY, around 1800. Family tradition has them from the same family as the father of Nathan HALE, and I have found evidence that Samuel HALE and Apphia MOODY had a son John born Jan. 16th, 1721 in Newbury, Mass. who moved to Gloucester (Cape Ann, Mass.) and died about 1787. He had the following children: Samuel of NY, John, Benjamin, Ebenezer, Jane, Sally, and Hannah. Does anyone know anything more about this Samuel or his father John. A reply to a letter my gt. grandmother wrote in 1926 to the HALE Family Genealogy Org. of Salt Lake City, indicated that there were possible sisters Mrs. SHOEMAKER, Palmer, Elisha, Lydia and Margaret along with brother Reuben. Clarissa eventually homesteaded in Washington State and there are many descendants of her children, Margaret JONES who married James PORTER and Ida JONES who married Rollin HALE.

My name is Beverly Ann (HAIL) CLARK. I am researching the following:
William L.(?) HAIL, alias Daniel J. MOORE, b: 12 Feb 1841, Culpepper County, Va, d: 11 Apr 1913, Greenfield, Dade County, Mo, parents: Benjamin HAIL and Catherine REYNOLDS, married: 17 Apr 1866, Leavenworth, Kans, spouse:  Marthe Elvira GRANTHAM, b: 10 Mar 1852, Dade County, Mo, parents Joseph GRANTHAM and Elvira E. CLARK.
Their children:
Joseph Benjamin HAIL, b: 5 Feb 1868, Dade Co, Mo
William Clark HAIL, b: 25 Jun 1869, Dade Co, Mo
James Garrison HAIL, b: 15 Dec 1870, b: Dade Co, Mo
John Wesley HAIL, b: 15 Dec 1872, Dade Co, Mo

William served in Conf. Co E 7 Va Inf, using the above alias name, and was also a Union galvanized Yankee. James Garrison  HAIL is my gr-grandfather.

I am looking for any information about William, his parents, siblings (he had a least one sister, Mary) and ancestors. Several years ago I corresponded with a son of John Wesley HAIL, Willie HAIL of Janesville, Wis, who had done extensive research on our common HAIL line. He shared a small amount with me, but passed the majority of it to a daughter. I think Willie is now deceased. Does anyone know of whom I speak or share this line with me? Your help would be deeply appreciated. Thank you, Beverly

Looking for gg-grandfather Jonathan Hale born in 1700's. His wife was Mary Cochran Hale. I know two of their sons were named Sparrel and John . Both were in the Civil War.

Sparrel last lived in Buchanan Co. He had many sons. My blood line is this way. Jonathan Hale was my gg-grandfather. George W. Hale was my g-grandfather. Herman Hale was my father. I am his daughter, Norma Hale Campbell. Oh I must say, Sparrel married Martha Fletcher. Ellen the sister of Sparrel Hale married Martha's brother. This would be Sparrel's brother-in-law.
