John & Elbert Sale in IL
Posted by: Kevin Sale Date: February 13, 2000 at 15:54:40
  of 1032

I've recently started trying to trace back my familie's roots and have not gotten very far. I suspect that my family branch begins somewhere with the AL and/or VA Sale's but only because I don't know where else they mave have come from???

Currently, I am searching for more information on my great grandfather Elbert Sale and his father, which I believe to be named John Sale.

Elbert was born on 9/18/1882 and married Nellie Titus (b:1/30/1886)on 12/24/1905. Elbert and Nellie bore 4 children:
Kathryn Sale b: 1/25/1907
Ethel Sale b: 6/2/1910
Helen Sale b: 4/10/1912
Eugene Sale b: 10/19/1914

It seems Elbert and Nellie moved around a bit as Ethel and Helen were born in CO, and Kathryn and Eugene were born in IL.

Eugene, my grandfather, married Marian Range and bore 4 children as well:
Sandra Sale
Robert Sale (my father)
Thomas Sale
Merrie Sale

By Elbert's birth date I presume that John Sale was born somewhere beween 1850 & 1865. That's all the information I have. Anything anyone else could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
