Below are notes about John Sr from the former Hale Roots webpage, which is now defunct, and I haven't been able to relocate this information on a new website anywhere.
See our notes comparison with the Hale Roots website

1. JOHN1 HALE, SR.1 was born Bet. 1706 - 17251, and died Aft. June 1793 in Franklin County, VA1. He married ELIZABETH1.

Revolutionary War: John Hale "gave supplies". References: Kentucky Ancestors, vol.12-No.2, October 1976, Arlene Brachman and Kegley's Virginia Frontier, pg. 582.

The Henry Co., VA land records show John Hale Sr. sold land (which he received in 1783 as a grant) in Botetourt Co., June 1792. In that transaction he is listed as "of Franklin County". Witnesses were Thomas and Joseph Hale and William Campbell, son-in-law of Thomas Hale who married Jane Armstrong.

There is speculation as to whether John Hale Sr. had a brother and a son, William, and whether Thomas, Edward and Jesse were children of a brother William whom John Hale Sr. may have been caring for. There was a William Hale living in the area, possibly the same William Hale who was killed by Indians in 1774. (source: Hite Report; the Draper Papers doesn't say what happened to him) Daughter, Hannah is speculative.

Note: Edward, Thomas and Jesse each named a son William and no son named John. There is a William Hale in the area in the 1780's, who got land in Fincastle Co., VA in 1776. (Source: Arlene Brachman).

Note for ELIZABETH: Coslow Birchell notes indicate a possible death for Elizabeth c. 1786, VA.

2. i. THOMAS2 HALE, b. October 19, 1742, Augusta County, VA; d. July 1802, Montgomery Co., VA.
ii. WILLIAM HALE1, b. Bef. 1750, VA1; m. _____ WILLIAMS.
Note: This William Hale born before 1750 may be John Hale Sr.'s brother and children, Thomas, Edward and Jesse listed for John Sr. may be William's
3. iii. JOHN HALE, JR., b. Abt. 1750, Botetourt Co., VA; d. 1798, Mercer Co., KY.
