Looking for information on family of Stephen Hale Jr. who married Mary Polly Moody in Bedford VA, lived in Pulaski Co KY for a time and moved to MO with children. Stephen and Mary dies in Macon Co MO in 1848 and 1842. Brother Benjamin also may have come to MO. Benjamin's son Miles was in Andrew Co MO in 1850 Census.
I'm trying to discover parents of Cornelius Hail who was living with Miles (9 years his elder so not his father) in Andrew Co in 1850. We think Stephen Jr is his father but find no proof that either Stephen had a son Cornelius in 1823, or the name of Cornelius' father. Yet some family relationship seems apparent since Cornelius was living with Stephen's brother Benjamin's son Miles in 1850.
Can anyone help with the Hail (Hale) Family in Macon and Andrew Counties MO from 1830 to 1860? Thanksfirstname.lastname@example.org
