  • Notes 
    • An old Bible record found in Decatur Co., GA gives births of Jeremiah Pickett Hale and Nancy Jane Wade, as well as for several of their children:

      Jeremiah Pickett Hale b. 15 Jan 1811
      Nancy Wade b. 20 Dec 1803
      Married 1827
      Issue:
      Sparrel Chancellor Hale 1829
      Creed Hale 1831
      Caroline Melinda Hale 1 Mar 1835
      Catherine Amelia Hale 8 Mar 1837
      Ruth Loutitia Hale 25 May 1839
      John Powell Hale 1841
      Martha Jane Hale 20 Dec 1843 d. 24 Dec 1915
      The dates for Jeremiah and Nancy differ from other sources.

      Jeremiah Pickett Hale and his wife, Nancy Jane Wade Hale, are buried in the Pikeville Community Cemetery, Pikeville, Bledsoe County, TN

      Jeremiah Pickett Hale was son of Francis Hale, and grandson of Thomas Hale and his first wife, Rachel Sheridan. His grandfather married, second, Nancy Wood. Two of the children of that marriage, Peter W. Hale (m. Sarah Manning) and Elizabeth Hale, (m. Samuel Manning), migrated to White County (Sparta) TN in 1837. These two were half-brother and sister to Jeremiah Pickett Hale's father, Francis Hale, but they were near the same age as Jeremiah Pickett Hale. In late 1840's, Jeremiah Pickett Hale and his family migrated to TN, first to Cannon Co.; then to Van Buren Co., then settled in Bledsoe Co. All these counties are adjacent to White County, where his half uncle and aunt and their families lived at the time. (They later, 1851, migrated to Illinois.)

      FAMILY TALE ABOUT THE MIGRATION OF THE JEREMIAH PICKETT HALE FAMILY
      (As told by his g-granddaughter, Eliza Jane Ewell Anderson)

      Jerry Hale walked from Virginia with his family when Aunt Ruth White was small.
      Her carried her across the natural bridge. They came to Pikeville [Tenn.].
      Creed and Sparrel got mad and left Pikeville and settled at Pea Ridge.

      [NOTE: Actually Jeremiah Pickett Hale brought his family to Cannon Co.--they were there on 1850 census. Before the 1860 census, all the family, except Creed and Sparrel, were in Van Buren Co., Creed and Sparrel had married and remained in Cannon Co., By the 1870 census, Jeremiah and his family were in Bledsoe Co., living in Pikeville, where they lived until both he and his wife died. They are buried in the Pikeville cemetery. It is, of course, possible that Creed and Sparrel initially moved from Cannon Co., with the rest of the family, and did actually "get mad" and return to Cannon Co. However, the more likely story is that their wives wanted to remain in Cannon Co., so, of course, they did.

      Jeremiah Pickett Hale is only known child of Francis Hale and Sarah
      Pickett. Elizabeth B. Hale and Sarah Hale probably are their children,
      but their is no proof at this time (1998). It is possible that Sarah
      Pickett may have died in childbirth.
