Compiled by 





The work of compiling this record was not begun, nor has it 

at any time been prosecuted, with any expectation or desire of 

pecuniary reward, but, on the contrary, was prompted purely 

by a love of kinship, and a desire to get in closer touch with 

» the various lines of descent. 

It is true, the work has grown to proportions beyond all 
expectation, and has required a large amount of time, patience 
and perseverance, but it has at all times been a fascinating and 
delightful labor of love. 

It was the original intention of the compiler of these records 
to confine them to the descendants of his grandfather, Josiah 5 
Hale, but so much information, relative to his ( Josiah 's) an- 
cestry and to other lines of descent therefrom, has been received 
that it has been thought best to extend the record to include 
his direct descent from Samuel Hale, "the settler" of Hartford, 
Conn., 1637. 

An epistolary appendix has also been added showing some 
of the sources of information and incidentally other lines of 
Hale descent. 

In this connection I would fain mention the names of those 
• who have rendered conspicuous aid in the work, but so many 
have rendered such willing and more or less important service 
that to mention any names might seem to imply that the aid 
of all was not fully appreciated, and I must therefore content 
myself with this general expression of appreciation and grati- 

There is a growing desire among the descendants of the 
old New England families to have the genealogies of their 
ancestors compiled, and I shall be most happy if this little 
volume should prove one of the stepping stones to a complete 
genealogy of our American ancestor Samuel Hale of Hartford. 

But if it should only result in cementing the ties of friend- 
ship and consanguinity between those herein named, I shall feel 
amply rewarded. 

Storm Lake, Iowa, Feb. 22, 1909. 



First, study carefully the ancestral paragraph, found under 
"General Remarks" on another page. Then trace from the 
record the ancestry of the two persons whose relationship you 
wish to find, to their first and nearest common ancestor. From 
this ancestor taken as generation No. 1 find the number of the 
generation of each of the two persons. Now, refer to the Chart 
and trace the intersection of the generation numbers, so found, 
(from top and left hand margins of Chart) where you will find 
the relationship stated. 

Examples. Find the relationship between Ray Ernest 
Smith (No. 216 of record) and Oscar Fitzalan Hale (No. 34). 
Turning to No. 216 we find the ancestry of Ray to be: (Bay 10 , 
Milford 9 , Ira s , Julia 7 Adsit, Hannah 6 Hale, Josiah 5 , Moses*, 
Thomas 3 , Thomas 2 , Samuel 1 ). Now, turning to No. 34 we are re- 
ferred to No. 32, where we find the ancestry of No. 34 to be: 
(Oscar 7 , Daniel 6 , Josiah 5 , Moses*, Thomas 3 , Thomas 2 , Samuel 1 )- 

An inspection of these ancestries shows Josiah 5 to be the 
first and nearest common ancestor, from whom as first Ray is 
the 6th and Oscar 3rd generation. The intersection on Chart 
of numbers 6 and 3 or 3 and 6 shows them to be 4th cousins. 

Again, take John White Hinckley, No. 26, and Kenyon 
Tudor Fay, child of No. 202. From No. 26 we are referred to 
No. 23, where we find for No. 26 John 7 White Hinckley, Sarah 6 
Hale, Josiah 5 , Moses*, etc., and from No. 202 we get Kenyon 10 
Tudor Eay, Frances 9 Wheeler, Mary 9, Clarke, Elvira 7 Hinckley, 
Sarah 6 Hale, Josiah 5 , Moses*, etc. These show Sarah Hale as 
nearest common ancestor, from whom as first generation, Hinck- 
ley is 2nd and Fay is 5th generation. Tracing on chart the 
intersection of 2 from the left with 5 from top and 5 from the 
left and 2 from the top, we get the senior and junior relation- 
ship to be great-great uncle and great-great nephew. 

For practice, take Milford Knowles Smith, child of No. 216, 
and Emily Rogene Seymour, child of No. 158, and find Josiah 6 
Hale as nearest common ancestor, from whom as first generation 
find Milford to be the 7th and Emily to be the 6th generation, 
and their relationship that of eighth cousins.

The consecutive method of numbering is now used by all 
genealogists and is the standard adopted by the New England 
Historical-Genealogical Eegister nearly half a century ago and 
still adhered to as being simple and easily understood. It will 
be noticed that children's names following their parental record, 
with their consecutive number on the left hand margin, are 
carried forward, in order, to the body of the record for fuller 
treatment. Children under age and those without issue are, 
as a rule, given no consecutive number, but their record is given 
in full under parental record. The collection of these records 
has been a difficult task and many are not as full as they should 
be, but the best has been done under the circumstances. Doubt- 
less many errors have unavoidably crept in, and in order to 
correct the same and prevent them from being perpetuated by 
future genealogists, all who recognize such errors are requested 
to inform me of the same, and at some time in the future I will 
endeavor to send out to all purchasers of the record an errata 

The ancestry of the members of each family is given fol- 
lowing the name, in the body of the record, of the oldest mem- 
ber of the family and a reference to this member, by number, 
follows each successive member of that family- Children who 
have been given no consecutive numbers will of course get their 
ancestry from their parental records. 

Particular attention is called to the above ancestral para- 
graph, as it will greatly aid in the use of the Eelationship Chart 
found on another page. 

The abbreviations used in this record are few and will be 
readily understood without explanation.

Ancestry and Descendants 




Samuel 1 Hale was our first American ancestor, born in 
England A. D. 1610 (Middletown Upper Houses, Grafton Press, 
N. T City, p. 166). 

The exact date of his coming to America is not known, but 
he is known to have been a settler at Hartford, Conn., in 1637 
and that he bought land on the east side of the river Connecticut 
in 1639. He served in the Pequot war, with his brother Thomas, 
for which he received a lot in the Soldiers' Field (Glastonbury 
for 200 Years, p. 166, Hartford, 1885) and a grant of fifty 
acres was made to his heirs "for his services in the Pequot 
Warre" (Colonial Records, Conn., p. 423). In 1643 he resided 
in Weathersfield, Conn., moving to Norwalk, where he lived 
in 1655. While living in Norwalk he represented that town in 
the General Court in 1656, 1657 and in 1660 (Colonial Records, 
Conn., 1656—65, pp. 282, 288, 298). He returned to Weathers- 
field in 1660, living in that part now Glastonbury (set off in 
1692), where he is reputed as having been a leading man. Died 
Glastonbury, Conn., Nov. 9, 1693. His wife's given name was 
Mary, thought by some to have been Mary Wells, but her maiden 
name is not certainly known. 

His ancestry is not definitely known, but at the time when 
the settlement of New England was begun there were in England 


at least three large families of Hales in different parts of the 
Kingdom, viz. : the Hales of Kent, the Hales of Hertford and 
the Hales of Gloucestershire, and it is believed that Samuel of 
Hartford was descended from one of these (Appendix, letter G). 

Contemporary with Samuel Hale in this country was 
Thomas Hale of Newbury, Mass., and Dea. Robert Hale of 
Charleston, Mass., 1630, and from these three all the Hales of 
New England stock are descended. They are not known to have 
been related, the Thomas Hale of Newbury not being the 
Thomas spoken of as having served in the Pequot war with his 
brother Samuel (Appendix, letter C).

Thomas 3 Hale (Thomas 2 , Samuel 1 ). Born Jan. 26, 1684; 
m. Susannah Smith, dau. of Nathaniel Smith. Lived at Glas- 
tonbury, Conn., all his life. Cannot learn that he had more 
than one child. 


4. i. Moses, m. Mary Edwards. 


Moses 4 Hale (Thomas 3 , Thomas 2 , Samuel 1 ). Born at 
Glastonbury, Conn. ; m. Mary Edwards of Middletown, Conn. ; 
was at one time a resident of Lanesboro, Mass. He was one of 
the original proprietors of the Town of Rutland, Vt., a grant of 
land having been given by George the III of England to seventy 
men known as the "Original Proprietors" of the town of Rut- 
land, Vt. This grant was something over six miles square and 
contained about 26,500 acres, "to be divided among them in 
seventy equal shares." (See frontispiece.) The records of the 
town show that he was at one time the owner of over 2,000 acres, 
a large part of which was within the present City of Rutland, 
including Main Street, North and South, and all East. (See 
Plate III, p. 9.) He left, as a family relic, his Bible to be 
given to "such of his descendants as should be named Moses." 
This Bible passed first into the hands of his son, Moses, Jr., 
second to Moses B., son of Moses, Jr., and is now a much prized 
possession in the family of S. Moses Hale (son of Moses B.), of 
North Stockholm Station, N. Y., and is yet in a good state of 
preservation. It was printed in 1791 (Appendix, letter A). 
Milford Hale Smith (No. 156) of Rutland, Vt., writes: "In the 
old grave yard on North Main St., in the City of Rutland, I have 
found four tombs with the following inscriptions: (1) 'Thomas 
Hale, B. 1755, D. Oct. 29, 1812, A. 57'; (2) 'Ruth Hale, wife of 
Thomas Hale, B. 1757, D. Jan. 27, 1801, A. 44'; (3) 'Joseph 
Hale, son of Thomas and Ruth Hale, B. 1779, D. April, 1800'; 
(4) 'Sarah Hale, Dau. of Thomas Hale, B. 1777, D. July 4, 1801.' 


I am unable to find the tomb of Moses Hale." The above-men- 
tioned tombs are, no doubt, those of Thomas, the second son of 
Moses, and his wife and two children.

Hannah 6 Hale (Josiah 5 , Moses 4 , Thomas 3 , Thomas 2 , Sam- 
uel 1 ). Born, Rutland, Vt., Mar. 25, 1780; m. Aug. 30, 1800, 
Jacob Adsit. (See Plate V.) His ancestry has been traced back 
to one John Adsit, who settled in Lyme, Conn., 1716. His son 
Samuel, b. 1719, lived in Lyme until about 1760, then moved to 
Stanford, Dutchess Co., N. Y. His son Samuel, Jr., b. Stanford, 
1754, served in the Revolutionary War, in Peter Van Ness' Regi- 
ment. He m. Phoebe Perdy, 1778, and moved to Willsboro Point, 
N. Y. His son Jacob, who m. Hannah Hale, as noted above, was 
b. Stanford, 1780, served in War of 1812. Was a farmer and is 
said to have been a, noted mathematician. Of his wife Hannah 
but little knowledge comes to us. She d. Jan. 20, 1805, at Wills- 
boro Point, N. Y., in the prime of life and felicitous motherhood, 
leaving two children, Jacob and Julia. He m. 2nd at Wills- 
boro, about 1806, Sally Moore, dau. of and ,

12. Harvey; 13. Himon and 14. Hulda, b. 1831, and the only one 
living, Oct. 1908. (For further information of these children, address 
Mary E. Fowler, Burlington, Vt., dau. of Harvey.) 

He d. Willsboro, about 1862, and his second wife about 1864, 
and both are buried in Willsboro Cemetery and probably his first 
wife also. The old log house in which al lhis children by 2nd 
wife were born, is still standing.

where he took his bride and where he lived until within a few 
years of his death, which occurred at the home of his son Hiram 
H. in Georgia, Vt., Sept. 22, 1874. The following brief obituary 
mention appeared in the St. Albans Messenger: 

"Hale. — In Georgia, Vt., Elisha Hale in the 93rd year 
of his age. He was one of the pioneers of the town and, with 
one exception, the oldest citizen. A man of considerable ability 
and force of character in his day and generation. ' ' He is other- 
wise described, by his last to survive child, Mrs. Almira Gris- 
wold, as "a typical New England pioneer, strong in constitution, 
energetic, persevering and of sterling integrity, a kind father, 
an indulgent husband and a genial friend. He accepted Christ 
as his Saviour when forty years of age and was ever after a 
firm believer in the efficacy of the atonement of Christ to save 
from sin." Lucy, his wife, d. Oct. 19, 1867, while on a visit 
to their dau. Almira Griswold, near Waucon, Iowa, and was

touching lines: 


I am looking over my labor, 

By the light of the Setting Sun ; 

For I see by the lengthening Shadows, 
That my day is nearly done. 

My work for the blessed Master, 

Is drawing toward its close ; 
Far less have I done in the Vineyard 

Than I hoped, when the morning rose. 

And yet while the daylight lingers, 

I will work as well as I may; 
Nor waste the remaining moments 

Regretting a misspent day. 

And ! if now in the vineyard 
Are any, led there by my hand, 

I give you this word at our parting, 
As nearer the gateway I stand : 


"Do all you can for the Master, 

Do better than I have done 
And then, when the day is ended 

You may Welcome the Setting Sun. ' '

Point, b. Shelburn, Vt., Oct. 2, 1793, son of Caleb Smith and 
Sally Rubeck. She was of a literary turn of mind and was a 
poet of considerable local celebrity. The following retrospective 
poem, written by her in her 82nd year, is clipped from the Essex 
County Eepublican, Keeseville, N. Y. : 

I sat all alone, in my own easy chair, 

My loved ones were absent, I could not tell where; 

I spoke to the winds, as I heard their wild moan, 

Saying where, ye wild winds, where, where, are they flown? 

where is that friend who most lovingly chose 

To sit down beside me each day at its close, 

And where, swift and wild winds, pray tell where is he, 

Whom I rocked in my lap, the last of the three? 

Then answered the wild winds in low plaintive tones, 
Gone with the angels, never more to return; 
Then I sat in my chair, and rocked to and fro, 
Till moments seemed speaking of time long ago. 

And these words I heard, in the voice of the past, 
Life's pleasures are fleeting, too fleeting to last; 
But warm early friendship through life shall endure, 


No waters extinguish a flame that's so pure, 

'Tis heaven's own daughter sent down from above, 

Fair virtue's twin sister, her name shall be Love. 

Willsboro, Point, N. Y., Mar. 10, 1884. 
(For farther record see Appendix, letter I.) 

James Smith, her husband, came to Willsboro Point with

Almira (Hale) Griswold, at Waucon, la., in Oct. 1878, she fell 
down the cellar stairs and was instantly killed. Mrs. Griswold 
refers to this sad accident as one of the most agonizing of all 
her sorrowful experiences. Three doors, all alike in appearance, 
led from the room in which the evening had been spent, one into 
the parlor, one up stairs, and one down cellar. The good nights 
had been said and opening, as she supposed, the stair door, she 
took the fatal step. Her remains lie buried beside her mother 
Lucy (Hinckley) Hale (in the old Waucon Cemetery), who, it 
will be remembered, died at Mrs. Griswold 's Oct., 1867, while 
on a visit just eleven years before.

a man of sound judgment and executive ability, a farmer who, by 
industry and thrift, secured one of the best farms and homes of 
Georgia. The following obituary notice is from the Watchman : 

"In Georgia, Vt., Jan. 8, 1901, Dea, Hiram H. Hale, aged 60 
years and 6 months. By the death of this dear brother the Bap- 
tist church of Georgia Plains loses one of its strongest pillars, and 
the community a worthy Christian citizen. Another name is to 
be added to the notable list of deacons whose deaths have of late 
been noted in the Watchman. Converted in early life, he was 
baptised by his pastor, Rev. Alvah Sabin, and grew up in church 
work. He served as Sunday school superintendent over thirty- 
one years, and as deacon seventeen years. He was the son of 
parents who served their generation by lives of Christian activity 
and usefulness. His father served as deacon forty-two years, and 
was the lifelong friend of Rev. Alvah Sabin. A few years later 
the son took his father's place in all the counsels of the church. 
In his home he will be greatly missed, where he was always the 
congenial companion, the cheerful, loving father and the faithful 
friend. He leaves the devoted wife of his youth, three daughters, 
one sister, and other friends to mourn his loss. The "sombre 
curtain" has fallen between us — but to him the rending veil 
reveals what "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard." "And they 
shall see His face. ' ' The funeral services were fittingly observed 
from his church home, Jan. 10, Rev. W. G. Scofield, of Richford, 
officiating. Text, 2 Tim. 4: 6, 7."

Born, Whitehall, N. Y., April 22, 1870. Began his literary career 
as professor of elocution in high school, Pittsburg, Pa., and later 
filled the same position at Lakeside Academy, but resigned to 
take up the work of Dramatic Recitals for Colleges and Schools, 
which work has proven him to be very gifted and popular, and 
his recitals are in great demand. He is soon to open a course 
for the Brooklyn, N. Y., Institute. Single. 

Following is one of the very many testimonials he is receiv- 
ing from the press and literary critics: 

Dartmouth College. 
' ' My Dear Mr. Kiernan : — It gives me great pleasure to 
write you of your success here. It is indeed a 'rare man,' we 
find, who is able to hold the complete attention of the students 
for two solid hours. But your 'lovable Rip' with his quaint 
toast of good fellowship, quite took the boys by storm. You have 
set for yourself probably the most difficult task in the whole 
dramatic world — that of reproducing, not impersonating, the 
character, atmosphere and lovableness of Jefferson's characters. 
You are the more to be congratulated therefore on your great 
success. I understand you are to give 'The Music Master' next 
season. We shall await your coming to us again with much inter- 
est. Sincerely yours, 

H. R. WELLMAN— The College Club."

The following letters were not prepared for publication, but 
were written in that free and offhand manner in which one 
friend writes to another, and they should, therefore, be accepted 
only for the valuable information which they contain. 

I am prompted to make this explanation because I am tak- 
ing the liberty of inserting them without the knowledge or con- 
sent of the writers or any of their immediate relatives or friends. 

I am induced to insert them because I consider them a val- 
uable addition to this little compilation and because I think 
the information which they contain should be securely preserved 
for the use of future genealogists. 

Trusting this explanation of motive will be accepted, by the 
living writers and the friends of those deceased, as a sufficient 
apology for the liberty taken, I remain, 

Devotedly yours.

0. F. Hale : 

My Dear Kinsman: 

I received your letter some time ago by the hand of my 
cousin Oscar 7 H. Hale (Ira 6 , Moses 5 , Jr., Moses 4 , Thomas 3 , Thom- 
as 2 , Samuel 1 ), who lives in the town of Norfolk, N. Y. * * * 

You ask for the family record in the old Hale Bible. I will 
say that I have this old keepsake in my possession on account of 
my name being Moses S. on the family record. This Bible was 
printed in 1791 and is in a good state of preservation for so old 
a book. But there never was any record in it, to my knowledge, 
but of my grandfather's family, Moses, Jr., fifth in descent of 
our first ancestor in this country, as you will see by the record 
I am sending you, which was furnished my uncle Ira 6 Hale, my 
father, Moses B., and my cousin, Edward 7 W., by the Hon. 
Robert S. Hale, of Elizabethtown, N. Y., in the year 1870. * * * 


This Robert S. Hale was a congressman from Essex Co., 
N. Y., some thirty years ago, and was, as you will see, writing 
a history of the Hales in this country, but he died some years 

4t- jfc jfc 

ago. * * * 

I will give you the names of my grandfather's family, 
Moses 5 , Jr: 

i. Ira (O. H. Hale's father). 
ii. Moses B. (my father), 
in. Asa (Edward W.'s father). 

iv. Eloisa, m. Blake; d. in state of Ohio. 

v. Isaiah B. B., lived and died in Iowa, 
vi. Luther, lived and died in Wisconsin. 
vii. Mary, 
vin. Alvin. 
ix. William E. 
x. Emma F. 
You are right as to Moses Hale, Jr.. once living at Georgia, 
Vt., and emigrating to Norfolk, N. Y. Most of his family, how- 
ever, were born in Georgia before emigrating to N. Y. My 
father Moses B. was eight years old when the battle of Plattsburg 
took place (1814) across Lake Champlain, from Georgia about 
30 miles, and he, with others of the family, heard the cannon 
roar and saw the smoke of the battle from the hills near their 
home. * * * 

Yours truly, 

S. M. HALE. 


(Referred to in Letter "A.") 

Elizabethtown, N. Y., Dec. 14, 1870. 
Edward W. Hale, 

My Dear Sir : 

I thank you very much for your letter of the 12th and ac- 
companying statement, and from it I can give you, connecting 
it with facts in my possession, your complete American pedigree. 

You [Edward W. Hale] are seventh in descent from Samuel 
Hale 1 , who emigrated to this country in or before 1637 and 
finally settled at Glastonbury, Conn., where many of his descend- 
ants still reside. His son Thomas 2 married Naomi Kilburn and 


lived at Glastonbury. His son Thomas 3 married Susannah Smith 
and also lived at Glastonbury. His son Moses 4 married Mary 
Edwards and emigrated to Rutland, Vt, about 100 years ago 
(1769). Your grandfather was Moses 5 , your father Asa 6 and 
yourself 7 . 

I have a large amount of information relating to the fam- 
ily — descendants of Samuel 1 , of Glastonbury, among whom are the 
late James T. Hale, M. C. from Penn., Reuben C. Hale of Phila- 
delphia, Gideon Welles, late Secretary of the Navy, and his wife, 
Rev. Albert Hale, of Springfield, 111., etc., etc. I will be glad to 
furnish you anything in my possession relating to the family. 

Wm. F. Hale, a clerk in the Interior Dept., is your second 
cousin, his grandfather, Asa Hale, having been a brother to your 
grandfather Moses. 

I am not of this family, my first ancestor in this country 
having been Thomas Hale, of Newbury, Mass., who may have 
been a relative of Samuel, but certainly was not his brother, as 
Samuel had a brother Thomas who was another person. 

All the Hales of New England stock, whom I have succeeded 
in tracing, are descendants of either one of these two (Thomas 
and Samuel) or from Robert Hale who settled at Charlestown, 
Mass., about 1630, and among whose descendants are Hon. John 
P. Hale, Rev. Edward, Nathan, the spy, etc., etc. If these mat- 
ters have any interest for you please pick up all the information 
you can about every person of the name of Hale, and send it 
to me. 

I am accumulating all I can in the hope of sometime getting 
a complete history of the family in print. 

Very truly yours, 

To Edward W. Hale. 

(Referred to in Letter "A.") 

Elizabethtown, N. Y., Mar. 14, 1870. 
Moses B. Hale, 

Dear Sir: 
Very pressing engagements have prevented my earlier ac- 
knowledging your valued letter of January last with its very 
full information in regard to your family and connections. * * * 


I send you the following information in regard to your 
ancestors from the beginning of their residence in this country, 
which you may like to preserve for the benefit of all your branch 
of the family. 

Samuel Hale 1 was your first ancestor in this country. 
[Here follows a brief biography of Samuel as embodied in No. 
1 of Record, and then the letter continues.] His brother Thomas 1 
was a "single man" at Roxbury, Mass., in 1634, removed soon 
after to Hartford, Conn., returned to Roxbury and there married 
Jane Lord in Feb., 1640, returned to Conn., and was among the 
first settlers at Norwalk in 1654; returned to Charleston, Mass., 
and there, Dec. 14, 1659, married a second wife, Mary Nash, and 
had by her a son John 2 , baptized Apr., 23, 1665. I have no 
further record of his children or descendants. * * * 

Among the descendants of Samuel 1 I will mention, besides 
the descendants of your family, the following : Rev. Albert Hale, 
D. D., of Springfield, 111., Hon. James T. Hale, late M. C. from 
Penn., Hon. Reuben C. Hale, of Philadelphia, Hon. Gideon 
Welles, late Secretary of the Navy, and his wife, Sylvester Hale 
and his son "William Henry Hale, both of Albany, and a large 
number of the name still residing in Glastonbury. 

During the Revolutionary War, sixteen of the name of Hale 
[one Josiah, 1777] residing in Glastonbury, took the oath of 
fidelity to the colonies and seven of them served in the Revo- 
lutionary army, two dying in the service. They were doubtless 
all descendants of your ancestor Samuel 1 . This gives about all 
I have of the Glastonbury Hales except the descendants of the 
other sons (some of them) of Samuel 1 . * * * 

My own descent is from a different stock, my first ancestor 
in this country being Thomas Hale 1 , (a different person from 
Thomas the brother of Samuel 1 ), who settled at Newbury, Mass., 
in 1635, and died there Dec. 21, 1682. 

Among his descendants, besides my own immediate family, 
are Rev. Benj. Hale, D. D., late president of Geneva College, 
Hon. Salma Hale, of Keene, N. H., Hon. Artmus Hale, late M. C. 
from Massachusetts, Hon. Eugene Hale, now M. C. from Maine, 
Geo. S. Hale, Esq., of Boston, Mass., William G. Hale, Esq., of 
New Orleans, and a numerous posterity in Mass., New Hamp- 
shire, Vermont, New York and other states. 


Besides these original emigrants there was Deacon Robert 
Hale, who settled at Charlestown, Mass., in 1630, among whose 
descendants were Nathan Hale, the Revolutionary Capt., who 
was executed by the British as a spy; Hon. John P. Hale, of 
N. H., Rev. Edward Everet Hale, of Boston, David Hale, for 
many years editor of the New York Journal of Commerce, and 
many more. I have no evidence that Thomas, of Newbury, Rob- 
ert of Charlestown, and Samuel, of Glastonbury, were related. 

Very truly yours, 

To Moses B. Hale, Esq. 


Written to Robert S. Hale, of Elizabethtown, N. Y., (now 
deceased) (see Letter "A.) and endorsed by him as follows: 

"Descendants of Moses 5 Hale of St. Lawrence Co., N. Y., 
son of Moses 4 , of Rutland, Vt., son of Thomas 3 , of Glastonbury, 
son of Thomas 2 , son of Samuel 1 , of Glastonbury — Received 14 
Dec, 1870, from Edward 7 Warren Hale, of Washington, D. C, 
son of Asa 6 , son of Moses 5 ." 

Moses 5 Hale. Born in Vermont — Rutland, I think — grew 
up there and married Miss Freelove Barber. He removed to 
Stockholm, St. Lawrence Co., N. Y., about 1820, where he died 
about 1840. His family consisted of ten children, seven sons 
and three daughters. I cannot give them in the order of their 
ages exactly. They were named Ira, Alvin, Moses B., Luther, 
William, Isaiah, and Asa H., Mary, Emma and Eloisa. I take 
them in the order named and give you their descendants. 

Ira has been married three times and is now living with his 
third wife. Has no children except by first wife, who was a Miss 
Amelia Judson, and who bore him three children : Ozro J., Oscar 
and Louise. The first two married, and are still living. Ozro is 
in Milwaukee, and has two children, both girls, I do not know 
their names. His wife 's maiden name was Dumdorf . 

Oscar resides in Norfolk, St. Lawrence Co., N. Y., and mar- 
ried a Miss Gage and has three children, all girls, I don't know 
their names. 


Louisa married M. R. Knapp and died leaving one child — ■ 
a girl. 

Alvin died several years ago, unmarried. 

Moses B. is now 66 years old, living in Norfolk, St. Law- 
rence Co., N. Y., married a Miss Melissa Sumner, who died recent- 
ly and who bore him four children: Wallace, Sumner [Moses 
Sumner, writer of Letter "A."] Janet and Sarah. Wallace 
married a Miss Manchester, has one child — a girl — and lives 
near his father. Sumner is still single, a young man of 22 or 
thereabouts. Janet married Giles Holbrook, of Potsdam, has one 
child — a boy. Sarah is single and an invalid. 

Luther married Gomes and losing his wife soon after, with- 
out having children, became a wanderer and I believe is now 
somewhere in Wis., still single. 

William is now about 60, did not marry until somewhat ad- 
vanced. His wife was a Miss Thompson, who bore him one child, 
a dau. now married and living near him at Potsdam Junction. 

Isaiah B. d. in 1856 or 7 in Wis. He removed in early life 
to Wheeling, Va., and was for some time in the practice of law 
there and afterwards connected with the P. 0. Dept. His wife, 
who was a Miss Cooley, died before him and he left a family of 
four children, two boys and two girls, the oldest being a girl 
who married and removed to Minn., her younger brother and 
sister going with her. Of this uncle's family I know little* save 
this— I don't know their ages, nor am I certain about their names. 

Asa H., my father, is now 56 years old, Avas married in 1838 
to Miss Sarah Felch and has six children living, two sons and 
four daughters, named Mary, Fannie, Agnes and Elizabeth, 
Edward (myself) and Charles, who is now twelve years old. 
The daughters are all single. I am the only one of his family 
who has married and my wife died only a few months after my 

Mary married a man named Mears and died young, I think 
without children. 

Emma married a man named Morgan and is still living in 
Potsdam, having no children. 

Eloisa married Hamilton Blake and removed to Ohio, where 
she still lives. Has a large family, but I do not know much of 


These are briefly the facts I am in possession of in regard 
to our immediate family. I have not the accurate data as to ages 
of those named nor the dates of the death of those who have 
passed away. Can procure them if you desire, which will I pre- 
sume depend upon your ability to connect this branch with the 
family history you are trying to complete.

Asa 5 Hale [brother to William] lived in Rutland, had a 
son, Edward, who m. and went to St. Louis to live, and two 
daughters, one of whom m. a chaplain in the Navy by the name 
of Cheever Felch and who, at the time my father resided in 
Boston, had their residence at the Charlestown Navy Yard. 

David Hale [also brother to William] moved from Rutland 
to Boston, Mass., m. Mary Child and had five children : Thomas 
(died single) Henry Martin (died young), David W., and Helen 
and Mary Pickard. 

William 5 Hale (my grandfather) had nine children, born 
in Rutland : 

(1) Frances, m. Enos Farnsworth, went to Missouri to live 
and in a few years was left a widow with two children, Enos 
and Sarah. She afterward m. Henry Ham, of Bass, Canada 

(2) Chloe, died unmarried. 

(3) Ann m. David Bristol, of Fort Edward, N. Y., had five 
daughters, the eldest being named Chloe. 


(4) Harriet went to Mayfield, Fulton Co., N. Y., and I 
think died unmarried. 

(5) Henry died, a young man, in New Orleans, La. 

(6) William died in infancy. 

(7) William Hiram (my father) born in Rutland, Vt, 
April 25, 1799. When he was nine years of age, his father lost 
all his property by endorsing a note for a friend, and it hastened 
his death. The family were soon scattered, William going to 
live with his uncle David, in Boston. He remained there a few 
years and went to Providence, R. L, to learn the trade of silver 
pencil case making. There he met May Bowen Cooke, the 
daughter of Thomas and Sarah Cooke, of Providence, and m. 
her in that place Feb. 1, 1820. From the time father left his 
home in Rutland he never returned to it, and did not see any 
member of his family for many years. After his marriage he 
continued to live in Providence for a year or more; he moved 
to Boston, remaining there only a few months and finally came 
to New York City and went into the employ of Thomas Adison, 
remaining there until 1831, when he moved his family to Brook- 
lyn, L. I., and commenced manufacturing on his own account. 
He was very successful, but close attention to business told on 
his health and he died at a comparatively early age, Nov. 22, 
1839. * * * 

Father was of an inventive turn of mind and after coming 
to Brooklyn, occupied himself in inventing several machines for 
engravers' use, also the invention of a steam carriage designed 
to run upon common roads. He also invented and patented a 
machine for gauging or registering the amount of water in steam 
boiler as a preventive to explosives. The steam carriage came 
home a year before father's death, but was never put to any 
use or taken out again as he was taken ill immediately after. 
It cost over $2,000.00 and was sold several years afterward for

Mr. Oscar F. Hale, 

Pocahontas, Iowa. 
My Dear Cousin: 

Your letter to Edward Warren Hale, which I enclose, was 
sent to me by some mistake or misunderstanding of the advice 
given you by Mrs. Marcia Turner Hale, of Glastonbury, Conn., 
who is a very dear friend and relative of mine. Her husband, 
Hezekiah Hale, Jr., is a son of my grandfather, Gideon Hale, 
Jr.'s brother, Hezekiah Hale, Sr. She has a habit of referring 
genealogists to me, due I suppose to her knowledge of my interest 
in the history of our family. Some years ago when I had more 


leisure, I enjoyed very much hunting up records of our ancestors, 
but of late have been too busy with other matters. 

I think your letter should have gone to Mr. E. W. Hale, of 
New York City, who I believe is connected with the U. S. Sub- 
Treasury. I have not his exact address, but if you will write 
to Mr. W. Farrand Felch, of Hartford Conn., P. 0. Box 149, I 
think you may get it from him, and I presume he can furnish 
you with some of the information you require. 

I have been writing to him to-night and have mentioned you 
and your letter to him. He is editor of the Genealogical Depart- 
ment of The Hartford "Times." I think he is in some way 
related to the E. W. Hale of New York City. I would be very 
glad if it were in my power to furnish the information you seek, 
but cannot except as this may put you on the right track. 

In your letter you speak of Bishop Charles Reuben Hale, 
late bishop of Cairo, 111. He died on last Christmas day. His 
father, Reuben C. Hale, was the son of Elias White Hale (another 
brother of my grandfather Gideon Hale, Jr.), who was the son 
of Gideon, Sr., of Benjamin, of Samuel, Jr., of Samuel, Sr., who 
was the father of your ancestor Thomas, from whom you descend 
through Thomas, Jr., Moses, Josiah and Daniel. 

I am going to send you with this a copy of part of a letter 
which I wrote to a lady in Minnesota, which may contain some- 
thing of interest to you. [See Ap. Letter "G. "] Please return 
it to me when you are through with it. 

There are quite a number of Hales here in Summit County, 
descendants of Jonathan Hale, who came and settled here from 
Glastonbury, Conn., in 1810. Jonathan was the son of Theodore, 
of Jonathan, of Samuel, Jr., of Samuel, Sr. 

They are good people ; no better anywhere. I came here from 
Connecticut three years ago. Othello W. Hale, Deputy Clerk 
of our County, a grandson of Jonathan, a few years ago published 
a chart showing the ancestry of Jonathan Hale and giving a com- 
plete list of his descendants down to the date of publication. 

He intends to send you a copy. I don't think he will for- 
get ; if he does just write and jog his memory. 

Mr. James Buckingham, of Zanesville, Ohio, son of Eunice 
Hale (Buckingham) the daughter of Benjamin Hale, son of 
Timothy, Jr., son of Timothy, Sr., of Thomas, of Samuel, Sr., has 


also compiled and published a history and chart which I am sure 
would interest you, as it includes some of your ancestors. 

I wish you all success in your work, and wish I could help, 
but unfortunately the pressure of other work prevents. I would 
be glad to have a copy of the chart enclosed in your letter. If 
you ever come this way be sure to come and see us. Very Respect- 
fully, Your Kinsman, 



Portion of a letter written by Edward White Hale, of 
Akron, Ohio, to Miss Julia M. Bassett, of Glyndon, Minn. 

Edward White 7 Hale is the son of Osmer 6 and Susan Smith 
(North) Hale, son of Gideon 5 Hale, Jr., son of Gideon 4 Hale, 
Sr., son of Benjamin 3 Hale, son of Samuel 2 Hale, Jr., son of 
Samuel 1 Hale, "the settler" at Hartford, Conn., 1637. Miss 
Julia M. Bassett is the maternal granddaughter of Mason Hale, 
son of Benjamin Hale, who was born in R. I. and removed to Pa. 

About the end of the twelfth century Alexander Hales 
was a noted scholar and philosopher. He is reputed to have 
been the teacher of Saint Thomas Aquinas. At the time when 
the settlement of New England was begun there were in Eng- 
land at least three large families of the name of Hale in different 
parts of the Kingdom. There were the Hales of Kent, the Hales 
of Hertford, and the Hales of Gloucestershire. Of the last of 
these families was the celebrated Sir Mathew Hale, who was 
nearly contemporary with Samuel, Robert and Thomas Hale, 
having been born 1609 and died in 1676. 

Robert Hale, the ancestor of the immortal Nathan Hale, 
was of the family of Kent. He came to Massachusetts in 1632 
and settled at Charleston. I think that you may find that you 
are descended from him — Robert — of whose descendants, Rev. 
Edward Everet Hale, of Boston, Mass., has written some his- 
tory — part of which I have seen in his appendix to "The Life 
of Nathan Hale," by I. W. Stewart, published at Hartford, 
Conn., about 1850. My only reason for this opinion is the prox- 
imity of Bristol R. I., to Charleston, Mass., as compared with 
Newbury, Mass., where Thomas Hale settled in 1635, or with 
Hartford, Conn., where we find Samuel Hale in 1637. 


Thomas Hale, who settled in Newbury, belonged to the 
Hertfordshire family. The name in England appears to have 
been spelled, now with a final s, and now without. Probably 
most of the Hales in New England have sprung from Thomas 
of Newbury, Robert of Charlestown, or Samuel of Hartford. 
There is a tradition that Thomas had a brother who came with 
him to Newbury and afterward went to Connecticut and settled 
there. This may have been my ancestor, Samuel Hale 1 . 

We know that he was at Hartford in 1637 and that he was 
a soldier in the Pequot War and that for his services therein, 
he received a lot in the "Soldiers' Field." In 1639, he owned 
land in Hartford on the east side of the river, but in 1643 he 
lived in Westersfield. In 1655, he resided in Norwalk, Conn., 
but returned to Westersfield in 1660 — though he did not sell 
his property in Norwalk until 1669. 

While residing in Norwalk he represented that town in the 
General Court, 1656-7 and in 1660. After his return to Westers- 
field he hired the estate of Gov. Thomas Welles, which, from 
testimony in a case tried in 1671, appears to have been on the 
east side of the Connecticut River. 

Samuel Hale's wife's name was Mary. When they were 
married we do not know. Their children were all born in this 
country as follows: (1) Martha, b. 1643, (2) Samuel, b. 1645, 
(3) John [1647], (4) Mary, b. 1649, (5) Rebeckah, 1651 (6) 
Thomas [1653], (7) Ebinezer [1661], (8) Dorothy. Samuel 
Hale, Sr., died Nov. 9, 1693. Of his wife's death we have no 

Samuel Hale 2 , Jr., of Glastonbury, Conn., was married in 
1679 to Ruth, daughter of Thomas Edwards and had the follow- 
ing children: Samuel 3 , Mary 3 , Ruth 3 . His first wife died Dec. 
26, 1682, and Samuel Hale 2 married Mary Welles, daughter of 
Samuel Welles and granddaughter of Governor Thomas Welles, 
and had the following children [by second wife] : Jonathan 3 , 
David 3 , Joseph 3 and Benjamin 3 .

Hartford, Conn., March 14, 1901. 

Dear Cousin 0. F. Hale: — 

I have your favor of Feb. 19th, nearly a month old, and 
Would have answered sooner, but my genealogical column in the 
Hartford Times has taken up all my time that I have to give 
to genealogy. I have also been having the grip, and am at home 
at present suffering from it. I had heard that you were going 
to write me, from Mr. Edward White Hale, of Arkon, Ohio, 


formerly of Wethersfield, Conn., who wrote me that you had 
written him and he had referred you to me. 

No, I am not a Hale descendant, but related to the family 
distantly. The Cheever Felch you mention was my grand- 
father's brother — both of them ministers, only uncle Cheever 
was a chaplain in the Navy many years. My grandfather was 
Rev. Nathan Felch, of Felchville, near Reading, Vt., which was 
settled from Reading, Mass., where the Felchs lived from 1640 
down to the Revolutionary "War. Rev. Nathan Felch, Sr., father 
of Nathan, Jr., and Cheever, married Mary Cheever, who was a 
great-granddaughter of Ezekiel Cheever, who taught school for 
seventy years in Boston, New Haven, etc., founded the famous 
Boston Latin School, where he taught three generations of pupils, 
and was also a leader in the movement that founded Yale College. 
A great many of the Cheever descendants and of Mary (Cheever) 
Felch are teachers. It seems to run in the blood. 

So much for the Felchs. Now for the Hales. I wrote up 
the Felch Family when I was in school, a mere boy, and pub- 
lished it in pamphlets, down to my grandfather's time. I also 
wrote up the Ward, Bruen, Farrand families on my mother's 
side. Then I was attracted to the Hales, and spent a whole 
winter of my leisure, outside of office-hours, evenings, etc., in 
tracing the origin of the family back to 1300 or somewhere then, 
and bringing it down for 300 years; then I was going ahead to 
trace out the various English titled lines but circumstances pre- 
vented at the time, and my cousin, Mr. E. W. Hale, of New 
York City, told me not to go ahead till I heard from him, and 
he heard from other members of the family about it. So it was 
never taken up. I furnished him and one or two other a copy 
of what I had written at great labor and covering a whole win- 
ter, and have a copy myself. I also wrote to Dr. Edward Everett 
Hale, of Boston, the famous author and clergyman, and he 
loaned me his papers, which I copied entire ; only he is of another 
line. And that line is printed now. The sticking point in our 
investigations was to get the English ancestors of Samuel Hale, 
of Hartford, 1637, and I had, I believe, when we stopped the 
work, the proper line, but it was never fully ascertained. It 
would require some trans-Atlantic search and considerable ex- 
pense, and I think Mr. Hale did not get the co-operation he 


wanted to trace it. There it has hung fire ever since, but I have 
been willing to go on with it at any time ; and am now, only my 
General Department will prevent me from doing more than 
supervising the work. 

I feel already assured that my cousin (second cousin) Mr. 
Edward W. Hale (who is an officer in the TJ. S. Sub-Treasury, 
in New York City), will feel highly gratified and perhaps sur- 
prised when he learns that you have undertaken the descendants 
of Moses Hale, who is his forbear. I will send him a copy of 
this letter and tell him that you will write him soon. I feel sure, 
also, that Mr. Edward White Hale, of Akron, Who has a barrelful 
of data as to the first Hales here and at Glastonbury, will co-op- 
erate with us, as far as they are concerned, and he has a great 
many historical papers, letters, deeds, wills, etc., of Samuel, 
Thomas, etc., and his own particular line. Then there are the 
Hales of Glastonbury and Hartford and E. Hartford who are 
working on their own lines; and I have recently been in corre- 
spondence with an Asaph H. Hale, of Portland, Conn., a great- 
grandson of an Ephraim Hale, who settled there 200 years ago, 
and he is very greatly interested in tracing his line, and is to 
call and see me soon. He has given me a lot of other addresses 
of descendants of Ephraim, and between us we can work up that 
branch. So that, by all co-operating together, we can in a year 
or two get up a very creditable genealogy of the descendants of 
Samuel and his brother ( ?) Thomas, of Norwalk. What do you 
say to that proposition? I can, myself, only work on it inter- 
mittently, as my General Department takes up all the time I 
have outside my office hours. I search for an hour after the 
office closes, then the library closes, and I come home evenings 
and write out my notes, etc. 

Write to Mr. Edward Warren Hale, care Sub-Treasury, 
Wall St., N. Y., and tell him what you tell me, and I will write 
him meantime. Let us all get together our heads and hearts 
and see what we can accomplish. When it is all done and ready 
for the printers, we will see that it is gotten out in beautiful 
form, fine type and paper — somehow, I feel sure. 


Box 149, Hartford, Conn. 



88 Sands Street, Brooklyn, N. Y., Sept. 30, 1908. 
O. F. Hale, Esq., 

Storm Lake, Iowa. 
My Dear Sir and Kinsman: 

Your communications to Hiram Morhous and to me, directed 
to Willsborough, N. Y., have been forwarded to and received 
by me. 

Willsborough is the correct name of the town, but by com- 
mon usage it is shortened to Willsboro. It is located on the 
western shore of Lake Champlain, and at the northern end a 
point projects into the Lake, the Lake being to the east and 
Peru Bay to the west. This point is about five miles long, is 
nearly surrounded by water and is variously called "Wills- 
borough Point," "Willsboro Point," and locally, "The Point." 
Willsboro Point is a part of the town of Willsboro, Essex Co., 
N. Y. 

Wallace F. Smith and his wife, Eliza Morhous Smith, now 
Hvq on Willsboro Point upon premises adjoining that where 
Jacob Adsit lived with his young bride, Hannah Hale. 

I well remember my grandmother, Julia Adsit Smith, 
daughter of Jacob Adsit and Hannah Hale. She was at Geor- 
gia, Vt., at the time of the battle of Plattsburg and heard the 
firing of the cannon. She was at the village of Willsborough 
Falls when a party of British soldiers came up the Bouquet 
River. She was then a girl of 14 with black eyes and red cheeks 
and she used to tell of how a British officer complimented her 
in an admiring way about her good looks. She was a rather 
large woman and was well preserved in her old age, and when 
80 years of age had bright eyes and remarkably red cheeks and 
was active, working in the garden and picking berries and tak- 
ing quite lengthy walks to the neighbors and to our house a 
mile away. She was religious and held strictly to the exact 
wording of the Scriptures. I remember her having an argument 
with some wandering canvasser and her silencing him upon the 
point of whether the World was created in six days by triumph- 
antly quoting the account in Genesis and asserting that it was 
the word of God and could not be denied. She was given to 


poetry and on one occasion had a dream that she stood by the 
grave of one Abram Weldon, then recently dead, and was called 
upon to prepare an epitaph, which she did, and which made 
such an impression that she remembered it when she awoke. 
It was as follows: "0 Abram, You rest now I trust, Ashes to 
ashes and dust to dust, But when you hear the Archangel sound, 
Rise up, Abram, and leave the ground." Her final illness 
(which so far as I know was her only one) was peculiar. She 
told my mother that she was not going to live long and without 
any special pain or ill-feeling took to her bed. The doctor said 
she had heart trouble. She had some difficulty in breathing, but 
in other respects had no pain or trouble. She desired to remain 
in a room without heat although the weather was very cold. She 
gradually grew weaker and passed away without a pain and 
saying and apparently feeling fully content to go. 

Julia Adsit married James Smith. William Smith, known 
as ' ' Quaker ' ' Smith, because his wife was a Quakeress, the grand- 
father of James Smith, came from Danbury, Conn., with his 
sons in ox-carts to Shelburn, Vt., about 1780, and settled at what 
became known as Quaker Smith Point. One of his sons, Caleb 
Smith, the father of James, crossed Lake Champlain upon the 
ice with a fine team of horses and settled upon the New York 
side of the Lake. He became very dissipated and his family 
grew up in extreme poverty. Caleb Smith married Sally Roback, 
the daughter of Dr. Jacob Roback (or Ruback). Roback was a 
surgeon in the army of Frederick the Great. He went to Que- 
bec and enlisted in the British army as a sergeant, left the army 
and went to Connecticut, where he married a Miss Hill. He 
was at the Battle of Bennington and cared for the wounded. 
Afterward he was surgeon in a Vermont regiment for several 
years. After the war, he settled on Grand Isle, Vt., and prac- 
ticed with great success along the whole length of Lake Cham- 
plain. He was one of the founders of the first medical society 
of the State of Vermont, at Rutland. 

Elvira Hannah Smith was the second child of James Smith 
and Julia Adsit. In her early years, she taught school and also 
taught wax work and had a course in painting. She visited the 
Hale family in Vermont (I think at Georgia) and used to tell 
of how the family where she visited began their Sunday at sun- 


down on Saturday evening and how strict they were in observ- 
ance of the Sabbath. She told of an uncle of Julia Adsit Smith, 
a brother of Hannah Hale (I think he was a brother and that 
his name was Josiah, but am not- certain) who was somewhat 
unsound mentally. He was a great mathematician and covered 
his barn all over with figures and mathematical calculations. 
He had recently returned from a visit to the West and told of 
his experiences. He was an incessant talker and told how he 
talked with people upon his trip, and they would say to him, 
"What is the matter with you, old man? Are you crazy?" 
And he would answer, "No. I am neither crazy, nor a fool, 
nor a crazy fool, but I am every whit whole." Elvira Hannah 
Smith married Hiram Chase Morhous about 1858 (I cannot give 
the date) and had two sons, James Rupert Morhous, who died 
in 1863 at the age of four years, and Charles Winford Morhous. 
She died at Willsboro Point in November, 1893. 

Hiram Chase Morhous, husband of Elvira Hannah Smith, 
was born in Willsborough in 1833, was married in Willsborough 
and died in the town of his birth in December, 1903. His 
parents were Charles Morhous and Amy Yaugh. Charles Mor- 
hous was a son of John Morhous and a grandson of John Mor- 
hous, Sr., who was a sergeant in the Fairfax regiment in 1773, 
and is believed to be the same John Morehouse who was born to 
Thomas Morehouse in Saybrook, Conn., in 1732. 

(Further information of the Adsit, Morhous and Hoffnagle 
families may be obtained from Rev. Milford Hale Smith, of 
Rutland, Vt.) 

I, Charles Winford Morhous, was born October 28, 1863, on 
Willsborough Point, in the same house where Milford Hale 
Smith and Alberti Decatur Smith were born, and where Julia 
Adsit Smith had lived for many years and where she died. The 
three children of Julia Adsit Smith were born in an older house 
upon the same farm, I believe. He is unmarried ; taught school ; 
graduated from the State Normal College at Albany, N. Y., in 
June, 1900; taught school at Hillburn, N. Y. ; studied law in 
the office of Hand, Kellogg & Hale, Elizabethtown, N. Y. ; was 
admitted to practice in May, 1893 ; is now engaged in the prac- 
tice of law at 44 Court Street, Brooklyn, N. Y. 


I appreciate the difficulty of obtaining matter for a genea- 
logical record and have endeavored to give you such information 
as I possess and you may find useful, and regret that I cannot 
be more definite as to dates, but I do not have my memoranda 
at hand and have to give from memory. You may rest assured 
that you have my best wishes and hopes for your success in the 
' ' labor of love ' ' which you have undertaken, and if I can at any 
future time be of service to you, please write me. I enclose 
order for one copy of your work. 

Very sincerely yours.
