Reuben Hail/Hale was born in Tennessee in 1802. He appears in the 1830 census of Smith County, TN. He first married Lucy Weaver. She died about 1838. Reuben then married Lucy's sister, Martha Weaver Taylor--who was a widow. They married in Miller County Missouri. Reuben, Martha, and his children lived in Greene CO MO(later became part of Christian County,MO--in or near Sparta, MO. Martha then died and Reuben then in 1852 married Martha's niece, Mary Ann Inman, who was being raised by the Taylor family. Reuben,Mary Ann, and family (some of the children sayed in or near Sparta, MO.) then moved to California where Mary Ann died shortly after. Reuben died in CA in 1873. There was another Reuben Hail/Hale who was born about 1834 in Smith/DeKalb CO, TN. Were the two Reuben Hail persons related? Does anyone know for sure? Please contact me if you know anything at all about these two men. I have more info on the descendants of the 1802Reuben. Please contact me if you know who the parents are of the 1802Reuben. Thanks for your help. brian in springfield mo
