States: North Carolina: Burke
I, too, have a John Henry DALE who was born about 1830 in Burke County and lived in the Grassy Creek area of Yancey County, which later became Mitchell. He served in the Union Army (he is buried in Grassy Creek Cemetery, where is tombstone has written, "A United States Soldier") and died right after the war ended in 1865.
I am not sure who his father is since I have had this stuff put away for a while, plus the fact that I think he married before the 1850 census, so he is not enumerated in his father's household.
