I am looking for the parentage of a Cornelius Aurthur Hail or Hale who ended up in Kansas. He was born in Pulaski Co KY 1822/23. We believe his parents were Stephen Hale Jr. and Mary Polly Moody. Stephen was born son of Stephen Hale Sr. and Nancy Arthur in Bedford VA, both families moved to Pulaski Co KY and Stephen Sr. and Nancy died there. The younger Stephen moved the family to Missouri where Cornelius lived with cousin Miles Hail (son of Benjamin Hail) in 1850 and married Mary Ann Best in 1852 before moving to KS in 1855.
If anyone has information about this family that either proves or disproves these connections I would greatly appreciate hearing from you firstname.lastname@example.org
