I emailed a cousin of mine and asked her if she knew anything about Elizabeth Hale. Sure enough, she did! In fact, she’s emailed me the entire Hale genealogy back to the birth of Hugh Hales Sr (yes Hales, not Hale…still need to verify the spelling, however everything I’ve seen so far points to Hale and not Hales or perhaps a “revamping” of the name into Hale) in 1740.
I’m in the process of transcribing it as it was originally typed in the old fancy typographic lettering, and then faxed years later using the old shiny fax paper…making it all very fuzzy and hard to read. But this is a HUGE breakthrough and I can partially put Grandma Lizzie to rest.
