Janice, If you have documentation that Celia Elliot was the wife of David Hale please sent it to me or tell me where I can find it. I have searched a long time for the maiden names of David and Samuel's wifes. I don't think Sealie was the same person. She died Oct. 2, 1900. This would make her much to old to be his wife.
I have a document filed by John E. Miles (guardian of the heirs) for indemnities for the losses suffered in the Creek War by Hannah Hale and Polly Jones. Polly was the wife of William Jones. I am curious as to why Mr. Miles was appointed as guardian. Could it be he was married to an unknown sister?
Thank you for the responce. Please stay in contact with me. Mabe we can solve this mystery.
