Silas and Lucy Hale

I am connected to the Hale line through Joshua Hale Sr., who was the brother of James Hale Sr. For many years we have been trying to find information on our Smith Family.

Our Hale's ended up in Cape Girardeau, and New Madrid County, Missouri, around the 1820's, after leaving Georgia. My Charlotte Briggs had married a man named John Smith. They had three children, before John Smith died in 1828. She then married James William Hale, descended from Joshua mentioned above.

Since we know absolutely nothing about John Smith, I tend to tilt at windmills. In 1816, Silas Hale bought property from a John Smith, in Clarke County, Georgia. This is around the same time my family appears in Cape Girardeau County, Missouri.

I have noticed a "Smith" presence in your tree, and I was curious how much you know about their history. Is Lucy Hale, wife of Silas, a Smith?

Thank you very much for listening! We have a Hale reunion every year in Schuyler County, Illinois, where James and Charlotte Hale ended up. The chapters of the Hale Book, have been immensely helpful in filling in some gaps.

Thank you so much for sharing your GOBER info & photos. To me they are a real treasure. I am the g.g. granddaughter of Elijah C. GOBER & 2nd wife, Marcella (DRAPER) Do you know or know anyone who knows where they are buried? Also if Marcella's maiden name was really DRAPER?

With deep appreciation,

RE: Mary E Grant
She is distant aunt. But no they are not buried by each other. You can transfer if you want. I'm trying to connect everyone.

Medora Raffety
Hello Sherri, My husband's great grandmother is Medora. Her son William Raffety married Minnie Mae Crow. We visited the Moore Cemetery in 2009 and have the same picture of Medora's headstone.

Do you know anything about Medora's husband, William L. Raffety? We know that he was born in Louisville, KY and I believe his father was John.

I hope that you can help us. Wanda Raffety, Baker City, OR
My husband is Bruce.
