Roy, I just checked my tree at Ancestry.com and I think you're right. I have 4 generations between Mary Jane Bays and Nicholas Haile on my grandmother Copper's line and only 3 generations between my gg grandfather Johhn Hale and Nicholas Haile on my Hale line. I do show two Joseph's as sons of Nicholas Haile. One born 1647-1718 and on born 1656.
I've just looked t the tree again and can't seem to find where the other generation might come from for the Hale line. Well, back to the grind stone.
This is great news for you John! If I can help in any way please let me know..
Michelle, in the 1860 census for Magoffin County,KY two John Hale families lived in the county, my gg grandfather (John Hale, born 1808-1820 in one of these VA counties: Grayson, Washington, or Wythe); and John Hale (born 1813-1818 Floyd County, KY). I never thought much about the John born in Floyd County, KY, as I didn't think we were related, until now. Through Ancestry.com family trees it seems he is my 4th cousin 7x removed through my grandmother - Mary Elizabeth Cooper (my father's mother's line). Then in another tree it seems that the two John's may be half-brothers, through my father's Hale line. Same father (Benjamin Hale (( b 1768 Franklin County, VA – died 1829 Floyd County, VA)) different mothers (Dicey Franklin and Mary "Polly" Hollandsworth). If this is correct then the John Hale born in Floyd County, KY is my 4th cousin 7x removed on my grandma Cooper's line and my 2nd great uncle on my father's Hale line. This is seems to make more sense than anything I've had on trying to find my gg grandfathers parents, and it seems to make sense that the two John Hale's were in Magoffin County, KY in the 1860 census. Do you think or have any info that could support this theory? Thanks for any help.
Benjamin Hale line is as follows:
Nicholas Haile (1628-1668)
Joseph Haile (1647 - 1718)
Son of Nicholas
John Hale (1706 - 1770)
Son of Joseph
Joseph Hale (1746 - 1803)
Son of John
Benjamin Hale (1768 - 1829)
John Hale (1815 - 1887)
Son of Benjamin
John Hale (1850 - 1938)
John H. Hale (1888 - )
John J Hale (1927 - 1986)
Son of John H.
You are the son of John J
An email is on its way to you.
John I am almost positive that you will be a double Hale as it were..I am sure that both of your lines descend from the same Nicholas Hale.If you will send me your ancestry name I will give you access to my tree..You may or may not find it helpful in your search. please send an email directly if you have any questions that I might be able to help you with. my email is email@example.com
Thanks Susan for sharing your info!
Hale%20Family.pdf ok, I gave it a try, hope someone can see it.
I did a search on Heritage Quest, through my local Library, Books, Lewis Hale, TN
and found a book with many Hales, from early 1600's on, with marriage records. I downloaded a pdf version, but don't know if I can share with you all. if any one knows if its ok, I would love to post it here.
Thanks for info Michelle. I'm trying to find if my Hale line is related to the Nicholas Hale/Haile line. I do relate through my father's mother (my grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Cooper), but I'm hoping that someone can help me discover my gg grandfather's parents, siblings, place of birth, etc.
My Hale line goes as follows:
Me - John Hale
My father - John J Hale – born 16 Jul 1927 in Inez, Martin Co., Kentucky; died 23 Dec, 1986, Stouder Memorial Hospital, Troy, Ohio.
My grandfather - John H. Hale - born 23 Jan 1889 in Salyersville, Magoffin Co., Kentucky. Death: 31 JAN 1955 Paintsville, Johnson County, Kentucky. Burial: 2 Feb 1955. Lakevillecaptain Powers Cem, Magoffin County, Kentucky. He married Mary Elizabeth Cooper.
My great grandfather - John Hale, born 10 Aug, 1853 in Perry County, Kentucky. He married first Nancy Trusty - born Nov 27 1857 in Morgan County, Kentucky. She is the daughter of Daniel Trusty and Leaner Eldridge; and second marriage to Margaret Trusty.
My great great grandfather - John Hale - born 1800-1810 in one of these Virginia counties: Grayson, Washington, or Wythe. According to the Wyhte County Historical Society no Hale families were living in Wythe county during the time John Hale would have been born in the county. They did say that several male children were born in Grayson county that matched the birth time period for John Hale. According to a document that John Hale’s son Willam (born about 1834 in Russell county, VA provided in his Guion Miller Roll application, William stated that his father was born 1808 near Avington, VA. I could not find Avington, VA, but I did find Abingdon, Washington county, VA. William also stated in this document that his father was half Cherokee.John Hale married Sarah Fawbush - born 1822 in Sullivan, Tennessee.
I have no info on who my great great grandfather’s parents were. I ‘m trying to find out this info to further my research on my Hale surname. Is it possible that my great great grandfather is aloa related the Nicholas Hale/Haile (born 1628 in Kent England and died 1668 in Tidewater, VA) line?
Thanks for any help.
