The only information that I have about Caleb Sale concerns the land tax (155 acres) which was charged to him starting in 1794. Apparently this was a portion of the land that had been charged to Hannah Sale until 1793; but was transferred to Thomas Sale, in 1793, and, by him, transferred to Caleb Sale, in 1794. Caleb was charged for this same tract of 155 acres until 1805, when he transferred it to Chillion White. I presume that Hannah Sale was the widow of William Sale since she was listed as the executrix or administrator of William Sale in 1744 (Campbell's Colonial Caroline County). Barry Wood, who seems to be somewhat of an authority on the Sale Family has identified Hannah, the wife of William Sale, as Hannah Jones. I don't know where he found her identity; but if true, that could explain a later marriage between Caleb Sale (a grandson, perhaps) and Elizabeth Jones.
