Family tree and Descendants
John Hale Sr > John Hale Jr
Apparently, John Jr. and his father, John Sr. both served in the Revolutionary War while in Virginia. DAR has the children below listed incorrectly as the children of Thomas (1742-1812) see the info
on Thomas Hale
Here is another DAR info error.
They made a correction to this info here: Hale Family Data Correction
The corrected letter lists the children of Thomas
and Jane Armstrong as John b. 7-29-1765, Armstrong, Jane, Joseph, Mary, Sarah, Jehu, Thomas, Betsy

I've been unable to confirm what you list. I can't find this group of children for John and Mary. I'd really like to make some sense of this as I am descended from Mary's sister, Nancy Willis. Might you have any more information about Nancy Hale and James Masters, or the family of Nancy Hale?

Hi Carol, This is the information I have at this time on our Hale ancestors. There may be - likely - some errors in this material, but for the most part, I think it is fairly correct. I appreciate your interest in our family. If you see any gross errors, please let me know.
