When you retrieve the family bible check and see if there is anything about grandpa. He never would talk about his side of the family only told us "if you ever run across any Hales they were probably kin to you". I haven't gotten back on ancestry.com in a long time, had to cut back on expenses but hope to start it back up next year. Have you been doing any research on the family yet? It's alot of fun to find all these records on our family. I've gotten alot of information on grandma's side (Mulkey) from Lillian Mulkey who lives in Helotes, Texas but grandpa I had to find on line and not really knowing alot about the Hales is hard to do. But I did find out who his father was and grandfather, but that's as far as I had gotten.
When you do get the family bible out of storage can I get you to make a copy of any information that was written in there for my records. If so let me know and I will send you my address. Thanks cousin
