Hi, I am hoping someone may be able to help me. I am the great grand daughter of Chester V Hale. He was born in Texas 1876 to David M and Drucilla Foote Hale. He had 2 brothers Edgar & George. David was born in TN 1848, died in 1880 in Collin County Texas. David's father was A Hale. This is where the mystery begins. In the 1850 Collin county Texas census, he is listed as A Hale, born in TN and is 54 years old. He died after 1853 as his wife Hannah is remarried to Joshua Knoy in the 1860 census. After years of research we have no clue as to who A Hale is or who his family is...any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Update on my research of my Hale line.
A before unknown cousin was located who is the great granddaughter of Henry Hale a brother to John Hale, my great grandfather. She stated that her mother (Mary Quinn) always told her and her brother they were not really Hale. They were AKERS. Her mother told them an Aker was adopted either by Henry Hale or his father John Hale, my great great grandfather.
Anyone on here descend from John W. Hale? I am sure there is but my mind is blank at the moment.
In the will of Nicholas Haile below, who is the John Hale/Haile that Nicholas' son Amon sold the land to?
Will Book 1. I Nicholas Hale, senr, of Washington County and state of Tennessee being of a sound mind and memory thanks be to Almighty God do by these presents make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner following:
First--I have given to my six sons, Richard, William, Nicholas, Nathan, Amon and Joshua heretofore their full portion in lieu and other property and so my will is my six sons above mentioned to receive one dollar out of my estate each of them and no more.
Secondly-- after all my lawful debts being paid, my will is my three daughters, Elizabeth Cage, Ruth Hale and Sarah Gray to have the remainder of my personal estate to be equally divided among them.
Thirdly--A certain tract or parcel of land lying along Thomas Murrays line and Thomas --rroms line and Michael Eddlemons line supposed to be between eighty or ninety acres to be equally divided between the heirs of John Hale, dec'd, and reason for this is the said John Hale dec'd estate being a piece of land I gave to my son Amon Hale and he sold it to the said John Hale and they never had any title from me for it yet so my will is to leave it as above.
Fourthly--my will is that my maletto man, Bob, at my death be set at his liberty and become a free man--except there be a crop on hand, then at the coming in of the crop to be set at his liberty.
Fifthly--My will is that my son, Robert Hale, have the whole managing of my affairs wherefrom I set my hand and seal this 29th day of April, 1807 Nicholas Hale, Sr, (Seal) Loyd + Ford, George X. Jackson, Rolina Berry His Mark His Mark
The foregoing will was proven in open court by the oaths of Loyd Foard and George Jackson, two of the subscribing witnesses thereto at the July session of 1818 and ordered to be recorded.
Hello all you Where in the Hale members.
I've come to the discovery, that while I am connected to the Nicholas Hale/Haile line form Tidewater, VA through my father's (John Hale) mother, my grandmother (Mary Elizabeth Cooper, I think my gg grandfather - John Hale (born in VA), may not be a Hale.
I looked a the yDNA matches I have at Family Tree DNA and saw that the only match I have at the Hale DNA Project, is with a known Hale cousin and a match with a person of the surname Aker, and I've just discovered that my cousin also matches this same Aker. This means that my gg grandfather could not be a Hale and was probably an Aker and was adopted by a Hale family, or hired by a Hale family and changed his name.
I am looking into info of Aker who may have been in VA at the time my gg grandfather was in VA.
Michelle and Roy this is what I tnink is more correct:
