I am a descendant of Francis Haile/Hale of Bedford Co., VA, who died there ca 1780 per probate. His wife was Clara Adara. Their children were Richard H., Stephen(my line), Lewis, Elizabeth, Mary,Ruth, Ushely and Mourning. Does this ring a bell with any of you? In 1996 I published a 350+ history of this family and allied families of Sloan and Smith.
Copies are still available if anyone is interested.
