It is believed that J. M. HALE and James M. HALE in the below notices are the same man, and he is evidently Monroe HALE (b. ca. 1867 GA), son of Septimus & Frances "Francy" (LEE) HALE who married 1850 in Marion Co, GA. Monroe’s sister Etta married Richard H. Allen RYALS. In 1880, this HALE family was enumerated on p.819B of the census of Pine Knot Dist. in Chattahoochee Co, GA. Members of this family married into the family of Wiley & Mary (ASKEW) SIZEMORE of Ft. Perry Dist, Marion Co, GA (cousins of my maternal grandmother).

[Note, from the Morning Herald newspaper (Kentucky), 09 FEB 1897: “Columbus, Ga., Feb. 8.—While in the act of praying Rev. Fred J.

I am interested in further information on this family, particularly the identity and burial place of Monroe’s wife. Also, we in the Clapp’s Factory Cemetery Preservation League continue to seek to learn the identities of anyone else buried in that cemetery. Thanks – John in TX
