I, too, am researching the Hale family of that area. To the best of my knowledge, the John Hale you seek is the son of Joseph Hale and his wife Rachel. Joseph left his will in 1798 in Patrick County, Va. John was one of the children named in the will. Others were: Thomas, Joseph, Mary m. Huff, Richard, Rachel m. Parker, Peter, Sally m. Tittle, Elizabeth, Nancy, Benjamin. I descend from Sally.
