Email from J. Coker: I was visiting your website - Hale Family Tree this evening. I am a descendant of Claiborne Coker who married Elizabeth "Betsy" Hale's - through their son Sylvester. All of the children you have listed for Claiborne and Elizabeth, except for Mary Jane (who was born in Spencer Co., Indiana), were born in Morgan County, Illinois, not in Republic, Mo. as you have listed. Richard Preston was specifically born in Pisgah, Morgan Co. Illinois.

Both Claiborne and Elizabeth are buried in Scott-McGill Cemetery; Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois. Claiborne died September 12, 1880. In Census records, there was another Claiborne Coker who died on December 24, 1874 in Morgan County, Illinois. This Claiborne is the son of Dennis Coker, the 1st Claiborne's brother. Both brothers came to Illinois from Georgia, through Indiana. I was told that Claiborne and Elizabeth Coker walked from Indiana to Illinois. She rode the horse and carried their first child while he walked and carried a rifle. They arrived in Morgan County, Illinois in 1823. I thought I'd let you know. Sincerely. J. Coker

History Note 1: "Concerning the marriage date of Levi Hale Sr., and Catherine Tucker, there is a mixup of dates due to faulty copying of the Early Marriage Records, of Mercer County, Kentucky, which appeared in the Register of Ky. Historical Society, Vol 20, No. 58, pages 13 and 16, published January 1922.

The marriage is listed twice with different dates as follows:

*Dec 3, 1794, Hale, Levi, and Catharine Tucker - Rice.
*Mar. or May 22, 1796, Hale, Levi and Catharine Tucker - by Rice.
The "Rice" who officiated at the marriage of Catharine (Tucker) and Levi Hale Sr. is undoubtedly the pioneer Presbyterian preacher, Father David Rice, as he was called."

History Note 2: Also see the information found in a Bible belonging to Levi Hale Jr. found in the possession of his grand daughter Nora (Pearson) Trimble, living near Chrisney, Indiana in 1940. "This is a copy made from a Bible published in the year 1814, by Thomas J. Dillingham, of Booneville, Ind. The Bible was formerly owned by Levi Hale Jr. the son of Catherine (Tucker) and Levi Hale Sr. At the time Mr. Dillingham copied the records, it was in the possesion of Mrs. Nora (Pearson) Trimble, the grand-daughter of Levi Hale Jr. Mrs. Trimble lived near Chrisney, Indiana at the time. (Dated July 16, 1940) Mr. Dillingham said the the writing was dim from age, and that he may have made some errors in the transcription.

Children of Levi Hale Sr. and Catherine (Tucker) Hale, were:
James Hale, born July 30, 1794 d. March 4, 1856
Ephraim Hale, born January 17, 1796
Polly Hale, born August 23, 1800
Jane Hale, born June 9, 1802
Betsy Hale, born August 20, 1804
Alsi Hale, born July 20, 1806
