Mary Ann Inman was born in about 1833 to Ezekiel and Sally(Sanders) Inman. Zephora Sanders(Sally's mother) is buried somewhere in the area. Sally died in about 1834 and the children were given to relatives and neighbors. Mary Ann and her sister, Elizabeth Ellen, were given to William and Martha (Weaver) Taylor, of Nahville, Tennessee. Shortly thereafter, William died. Martha moved to Missouri. She married Reuben Hail(who was a widower). Reuben and Martha settled in Greene(Christian CO) MO. Living very close to them in Sparta was William Fielding Taylor(son of Martha) who had married Elizabeth Ellen Inman. Living with them was Elizabeth Ellen's little sister, Mary Ann Inman. In 1849, Martha died. In 1852, Reuben married Mary Ann Inman. A baby was born to them, Sarah Jane Hail. In 1853, Reuben and family moved to Merced County, California where Mary Ann died soon after arrival. William Fielding Taylor and family moved to Merced County California at about the same time. Mary Ann Inman Hail was the sister of John W. Inman who was written about in the book,"Pioneers of the Ozarks", written by James Bayard Inmon. In the book, Mary Ann is mentioned in that she, "married someone and then died". Does anyone out there know who the parents are of Reuben Hail? Reuben has descendants living in the area and some living in California--in the Merced area, Please contact me if you know anything about who Reuben's parents were---thanks brian in springfield mo
