I'm looking for information on Hail family that came to Pulaski Co from Bedford Co VA. Stephen Hail Sr. married Nancy Arthur and had a son Stephen Jr. who married Mary Polly Moody. They had several children who we think included Cornelius Arthur Hale born 1822/3 in Pulaski Co KY. Stephen Jr. and Mary moved to Missouri with their children. Stephen Jr. and Mary died in Macon Co MO in 1848 and 1842 Cornelius is found living with cousin Miles (son of Stephen's brother Benjamin) in Andrew Co MO.in 1850.
Can anyone provide support for identifying Cornelius' parents? Birth or baptism record? anything? If Stephen is not his father, it seems he is in the family since he lived with Miles after his parents died. Unfortunately census records pre-1850 do not name children. Which Hail in Pulaski Co was his father in 1822/23?
Any help woud be appreciated! firstname.lastname@example.org
