These Hale Family pages are courtesy of Lyford Hale. If you copy this material word for word, please cite Lyford Hale as your source.
Lyford spent years tracking down as many original source documents as possible. He visited where the ancestors lived, where they went to church, local hysterical societies, libraries, court houses, and every other repository of state and local records he could find. He notes that spurious information plagues the internet these days. Please take what you find on the web with a grain of salt — including here — unless original source documents are cited (Court or church records, wills, etc.).
Wishing to present records that are as accurate as possible, Lyford has made every effort to present facts, not guesses (Okay, a few guesses, but they are noted as such). And he does offer sources for much of what he posts. He acknowledges, however, that no one is perfect, must less him, so asks that you contact him at lyfordhale1 at icloud dot com should you take exception to something you find here. Additionally, if anyone can show original source documents to take these lines back to the British Isles, or elsewhere, please contact Lyford.
While you are invited … encouraged even … to submit material and comments, such remarks as “You’re crazy” or “You are an idiot” probably won’t be received in the constructive manner you obviously intended.
One final note: These are Lyford’s working pages and thus include many notes originally intended only for himself. You may, from time to time, find the exact same words on websites posted by other researchers. Rest assured they originated with Lyford, unless otherwise noted.
