      I wonder if Francis Hale that transported John Turner could be the same Francis Hale that was the son of Nicholas Hale and Mary Travers of Lancaster County, Virginia and Baltimore County, Maryland. May be the same line that Charles Merryman married into.

      Children of NICHOLAS HALE and MARY TRAVERS are:

      3. i. GEORGE3 HALE, b. c 1662, Lancaster County, Virginia; d. January 1698, Lancaster County, Virginia.

      ii. JOHN HALE.

      iii. FRANCIS HALE.

      iv. JOSEPH HALE.

      v. RICHARD HALE.

      vi. MARY HALE, b. 1650, York County, Virginia; d. Bef. March 1672, Lancaster County, Virginia.

      vii. NICHOLAS HALE, b. c 1655, Lancaster County, Virginia; d. March 29, 1730, Lancaster County, Virginia.

      Descendants of George Heale (Hale)

      I'm interested to know the source of the birthdate and birthplace of
      Nicholas HAILE (HEALE). Also the claim that his wife Mary was a TRAVERS. I
      haven't found any documentary evidence of any of these items, and Linda
      Lawhon, who was the Travers researcher par excellence, told me about 10
      years ago, "She was *not* the daughter of Rawleigh Travers." Neither Linda
      nor I ever turned up any solid evidence of Mary -- Haile/Heale's maiden
      name. If someone has, I'd certainly like to see it.

      Kathleen:

      I am very much inclined to agree with you. When Stephen A. Rhodes very
      kindly donated his 2004 bound manuscript titled "Descendants of
      Nicholas Haile and Mary Travers" to the MBWL, we volunteers were
      admonished by the noted family historian and genealogist Carolyn Jett
      to use it with extreme caution, most notably due to its very title.
      She said there is no evidence that the wife of Nicholas Haile was Mary
      Travers, and in fact the evidence was overwhelming that she was NOT a
      Travers at all. I don't remember the exact reasons why, but I am
      pretty sure it was that the Mary Travers in question is proved to have
      married somebody else. Don't quote me on this, because I really don't
      remember Carolyn's exact reasons, but they were very convincing at the
      time.
