    • Margaret Patsy Hale Born 1759 probably in VA, died 1830
      in Calebs Creek, Knox, KY (could also be Clay county, KY, She married Peter Hammons born 1759, Prince William County, VA, died 1851 in Calebs Creek, Knox, KY Looking for her Family

  2. Cool, it hasn’t been totally confirmed yet, but our family tree traces back to be a relative of nathan hale

  3. Zman, that IS cool! I’d love to know which family member is your ancestor.

  4. my bloodline traces back to nathan hale, and maybe further. i need some help in finding more if anyone is interested.

    • I have traced my Hale line back to the 700’s. My GGGGgrandfather is Maj. Samuel Hale. Samuel is brother of Deacon Richard Hale, Nathan Hale’s father.

  5. dukes79,
    I might be able to help you. Email me if interested.

  6. hay my name is duane everett hale im part of is blood line

  7. i have nathan hales blood too he is a direct relative

  8. ive been told for years that i am related to nathan hale but have no clue how?

    • Nathan Hale had no direct descendants b/c he had no children. If you are related to his family, it would be through one of his brothers or sisters. The Hale name is very common in the US, and you’d probably have to hire a genealogist to trace your lineage.

      • You are correct that Nathan Hale had no children. I’m a cousin of his like so many other people are. If you look at the pedigree chart at http://nathanhalesociety.org/membership.htm you can see who his ancestors are. His family goes back to Newbury, MA and Hartford, CT among other early colonial settlements.

      • artzy design gurl

        hello there:

        I am looking for a sure & reliable source to start my family tree.

        My last name is Hale. I have Hale relatives in the New York, Boston, Philadelphia areas.

        In what way do you recommend I go about this?

        Sincerely,

        Ms. Hale

  9. Descendant through John Hale, Nathan’s brother. Grandmother was Mary Hale from California.

    • artzy design gurl

      I also have family “Hale” who live in Palo Alto, CA. My father, and his father, and my Grand father’s brother were all twins.

      Their names are Johnathan Wade Hale, Herman Lloyd Hale, Horace Hale, to start…not included, my father and his twin brother’s name.

      Hope to hear something soon. The dates that I go back to so far are, 1901, 1931, 1928, to start.

      Thanks

  10. if anyone is related to william hale father of silas almer hale contact me

  11. I am a descendant of the Hale family and have managed to trace the Hale family all the way back to England 1200 a.d. but going back that far I found their was still many holes because of lacking records, most records I found where old church records with births and deaths. Also an interesting note I found one trace that leads to the Hale family having a connection to the Mayflower, but I am not sure on how reliable It is.

    • Have you checked Hale, House, and Related Families? Many libraries and genealogy societies have copies. I believe Robert Hale was the founder of this branch, and he did not come over on the Mayflower.

      • Your are incorrect about Robert Hale being the founder of the branch, if you look hard enough you can trace the Hale family back much further on both of Nathan Hales parents. The farther back you go though the Hale name does end up changing. Now when I traced the family tree back I found the names of the family that did come over to America, and I did find a name that matches a passenger on the Mayflower and the time frame does match, but I am not sure if its the same person or not, it could just be a common name that they shared, but like I said the time frame makes it a possibility but im still looking into it.

      • Casey, if there’s an error, it’s in the genealogy book, Hale, House, and related families. I’ve simply posted scans from that resource. If you have other information that you can document, I’m sure others would find that extremely helpful.
        Thanks for reading You’re History.
        Best,
        Linda

  12. I am related to Nathan Hale through my moms side of the family.

  14. Lucy Hale MacLeod

    Check out the Hale family association. I am a member and am from Robert, Samuel, John ,making Nathan my 1st cousin 6 times removed. My maternal line is also Hale, with Robert, John, Samuel, Samuel Jr. etc. I believe that Robert Hale came to Charlestown MA around 1630 as part of the great migration. John was the first minister in Beverly MA, his home is part of the historical society there.

  15. i am related to nathan hale as well and have a complete family tree tracing my lineage. he is my 8th great uncle

    • May I ask how you obtained your information? My grandmother married into the Hale family but I haven’t been able to trace back the connection. Unfortunately, no one is alive anymore to get the facts from.
      Any info would be appreciated.

      • It’s from a book, Hale, House, and Related Families. It should be available at your library or local genealogical society.

  16. My Grandmother is Dorothy Hale. She was born in Newport, RI; I guess around 1925 or so. I have always been told she was a decendent of the Hale family. How do I find out for sure?

    • Kevin, your grandmother is undoubtedly descended from one of the branches of the Hale family, but there were 5 of those branches in Connecticut alone. The best source I know of in print is Hale, House, and Related Families, and most larger libraries have a copy. Good luck in your search!

      • katknit
        A copy of the book Hale, House and Related Families can be purchased on Amazon.com New for $80 and used $65. Also the book can be viewed on Ancestry .com page by page and printed.

  25. i als have my family tree traced from nathan hale as well as england also anyone have any meese’s mary a hale?

  26. My nephew is wanting to find out if his family has any relation to the Nathan Hale family.

    We are a bit at a loss as to where to start.

    Does anyone have records of Hales from the center Pennsylvania areas?

  27. Could the Mayflower Hale/HALL/Haule have lost one or several of their Mass. sons to Rhode Island due to a disagreemnt with Religion tenents? Our HALL family lore states these HALL men may have come from Rhode Island to Virginia then into North Carolina and Tennessee. I am not satisfied with what I have found during seven years of 8 hrs per day searching for anything that may bring the parents of our William R Hall to light. Thanks for anything you may be able to offer………..any site/s etc.

  33. Alicia Hale Stephens

    My parents research in the 70’s revealed we were decended from one of Nathan Hale’s siblings.I am seeking information about how to research the Hale family in the southwest region of Virginia.I only have names of my great grandparents.I do know that my great grandmother was a twin.They were at one time the oldest twins in the nation.They were both over 100 yrs old. Their names were Martha and Melitha.Any connections or information would be appreciated.I have very few names to go on for ancestory.com

  34. … i still don’t know if I’m related to Nathan Hale… all i know is that my mothers maiden name is Shirley A. Hale and my Granpas Name is Robert L. Hale

    • Hales comprise a huge family. There were 5 different branches in CT alone during the early days. If you can trace back your 20th century genealogy, you might make a start on the earlier records,

  35. I am a Hale also, my mom is Frances Hale, but I have not traced the links yet as I am working on another side of my family at the moment. Our family history also says we are collateral descendants from pre-rev days. hello all my distant cousins. love,sara

  36. Any lineage information on Mary Maria Hale who married my GGG Grandfather John Filer/Fyler? Additional Info:
    Hale, Mary Maria
    Birth : 1796
    Death : 19 APR 1849
    Gender: Female
    Family:
    Marriage: 24 MAY 1833
    Spouse:
    Filer, John

    • There are about 75 Mary Hales listed in Hale, House, and Related Families. That’s a good place to start – your public library probably has or can obtain a copy. Good luck in your search, Charles.

  37. I am the pres. of the Westhampton, MA historical society and have learned quite a bit about the patriot Nathan Hale’s brother Enoch, and his descendants. Enoch and Nathan attended Yale together, graduated together. When Nathan disappeared in N.Y., Enoch went looking for him. Enoch remained in Westhampton all his life and is buried here. His son, Nathan, went on to become the editor of the Boston Daily Advertiser and was the father of, among others, Edward Everett Hale. Another of Enoch’s sons, Richard, married a Rust girl from town. Their son was named Enoch Hale. He went on to become a well known physician in Boston, working to establish the Lying In Hospital for Indigent Women (later became Brigham & Women’s Hospital). In the middle and among many others omitted, you can see some of the Hale family relationships, letters, drawings, etc. at the online site for the Smith College archives at: http://asteria.fivecolleges.edu/findaids/sophiasmith/mnsss90_bioghist.html

    I would be happy to try to answer any questions you may have about the Hales of Westhampton or their descendants.

    • Barbara, thanks so much for your lovely offer. We often get requests at the Homestead re Nathan’s sibs and it’s great to have an online resource. Much appreciated. If you’d like to tour the Hale house in Coventry, where Enoch grew up, please contact me and I’ll take you around personally. Are you aware of the proposal letter Enoch sent to Alice Adams? The source of the legend about Nathan and Alice.

      Anyway, thanks again.

      • Yes, I have read it. I am familiar with and have begun to transcribe Enoch’s diary as excerpted by Sylvester Judd. One mention is having received Nathan’s belongings, including a bolt of cloth from which Enoch had some shirts made (in Northampton, MA). I am in touch with a great granddaughter of Edward Everett Hale. Her grandmother donated her Hale papers to Smith College’s archives. I gave Nancy a tour of our town, the church where Enoch had preached, the cemetery, etc. I’m sure she would also enjoy a tour the next time she comes “north.” Thank you so much for your offer. I hope to see you in 2013.

  38. On my dad’s side I am related to Nathan Hale!

  39. My Grandfather, Russell Hale Archerd was the sun of Ardella Hale and Elmer Archerd. Ardella was the daughter of A. Delbert Hale and her grandfather possibly had the same name. Ardella’s father was born 7 Sep 1851 in St Joseph,MI, married Sarah Mariah Irons in 1873 and died 1 Dec 1931 in Salem,Marion,OR. We have always believed him to be descended from Nathan Hale’s family and would appreciate any information connecting the generations.

  40. My grandmother, my mom’s mom, was related somehow to Nathan Hale, I just don’t know how, her maiden name was Millie Mae Hale, married last name (Gardner) I would love to find out more….
