OHN HALE, SR.:

[mills070899.FTW]
John Hale and his brothers moved from Virginia to Logan County West Wiginia.

Written By Thomas E. Winters great grandson of Layne Hale.

A synopsis written by Robert Hale, great-grandson of Johnnie Hale, Sr., furnished the beginnings of genealogical search for the ancestors of the Hale family. Hilma Hale Lewis began the search and was soon joined by her cousin Elmer Hale, (Both are grandchildren of Bill Hale.)

Robert Hale's synopsis states John Hale Sr. moved to Logan County in 1844 and settled a mile above what is not Pecks Mill. Also, he had two half-sisters: One married John Price and lived on Price's Branch (Below Peck's Mill first hollow to the north.) The other married James Whitman and settled on what is not Whitman Creek. The synopsis concludes with "This writer is a great grandson of Johnnie Hale Sr. and will be 85 years old on February 10." He did not specify the year, but the 1990 census says he was 19 and born in 1881. He is listed as a grandson with William A. Hale. This would mean he was writing tis synopsis about 1966.

Information from others in the family indicate John Hale Sr. settled for a short while on Coal River at a place called Ed White (???). There is a town called Edwright in Raleigh County. Also he supposedly went from Roanoke, VA, to Buchanon Co., VA, and on to Logan.

It appears that John came from Franklin County VA, on the Pig River, about 1830. He was living in Fayette Co. in 1840. He came to Logan County (W)VA about 1843-45. In 1850 census John is listed in the Logan County census. In 1860 he was living at Ramage on the Boone Co./Logan Co. line. His age is given as 45, and he was living close to the Anderson Barker Farm. The records show that he was from Franklin County. (What records???)

Elmer Hale also reports that Bill Hale, son of John Hale Jr., remembered the burial of John Hale Sr. at Price Branch, just below Pecks Mill. Bill Hale remembered a wagon carrying the coffin along the railroad tracks and an old woman who was carried in a chair up the hill to the burial. Perhaps this woman was his wife, Peggy Williams Hale.

Wilsie Hale Fletcher and her daughter interviewed Dave Hale (youngest son of John Hale Jr.) when he was in a nursing home in Huntington in about 1980, Dave Hale said his grandfather John Hale Sr. and two brothers came over the Blue Ridge Mountains in the 1800's. One went to Kentucky, one to Kanawha Co., WV, and John to Logan Co., (Pecks Mill). According to Dave Hale, John Hale Sr.'s mother was not married. His father's last name was Davis. His mother was half or full Cherokee Indian.

Belva Hale Geer (daughter of Layne Hale) remembers hearing the story of the Hale family of Virginia told to her by her father or her brother Archie Hale. Belva remembers that the story was thet the Hale father called the children in, opened up his trunk, and gave them some gold so they could leave Virginia because people were so prejudiced against them. This was evidently because of their Indian blood.

John Hale Sr. died 17 February 1880 and was buried in the Henderson Cemetery at Price Branch, which is located just down river from Pecks Mill on the same side of the river as Pecks Mill. Bill Hale (son of John Hale Jr.) b. 1870 remembered John Hale Sr. Bill was 10 when his grandfather died. He remembered two men carrying a chair wtih a woman in it to the cemetery. Perhaps this was his widow.

John Hale Jr. died in 1920 and was buried on the hill at Crooked Creek, WV, above the old McDonald home. Wilsie Hale Fletcher remembers that her father Allen Douglas "Kiser" Hale had a tombstone erected in the 1950's and she remembers going up with him to see it. The grave is pretty far back in the cemetery, to the right. (A search was made in 1991 by Elmer Hale, but the tombstone could not be located. The search will continue.)

Notes for M
ARGARET PEGGY WILLIAMS:
[Mills070999.FTW]

[mills070899.FTW]

Family stories have it that both of Allen Douglas Hale's grandmothers
were half Cherokee. So it is assumed that Margaret Williams had
Indian blood.

From the Records of Thomas Winters:
There has been some confusion about Margaret Peggy Williams Hale's maiden name. When two of her sons John Hale Jr. b. 1847 and son David Hale b.1838 died, Rev. J.G.McNeely said both times that their mother was a Price. However, according to Elmer Hale, Elmer remembers having dated a Williams girl when he was in high school. This Williams girl lived in the S curve in Logan Co.; her grandmother told him that they were related. Therefore, it is assumed that Rev. McNeely got the death certificates wrong by naming the boys aunt's married name rather than their mother's maiden name. Rev. McNeely may have got this confused with his wife's Hale ancestors.
