My Ancestor Cornelius Arthur Hail, born in Pulaski Co KY, 1823, probably came to MO before 1840 with his family. Census records prior to 1850 do not list children, He lived with (cousin?) Miles Hail in the 1850 census. He married Mary Ann Best in 1852 and moved the family west to KS in the late 1850's. Does anyone know who his parents were? Why he was living with cousin Miles?
Thought to be parents Stephen Hail Jr. and Mary Polly Moody were in Macon MO and died there in the 1840's. Any help or connection would be appreciated! firstname.lastname@example.org
