Robert Ryland Sale, born 1805 Virginia

I'm seeking information about the parents and ancestors of a

Robert Ryland Sale

born 1805 Virginia
died 1869 Hanover, Virginia

Father: John Sale (?)
Spouse: Mary Ellen James, born 12 Aug 1831 Virginia
Children: Lillie Lee Sale, born 18 Aug 1866 Virginia
Roberta Sale

I am not sure if 'Robert Ryland Sale' is the same person as this 'Robert R. Sale':

United States Census:
28 Oct 1850, County of Caroline, Virginia
       Robt R. Sale 46 M
       Catherine T 51 F
       Silas B 14
       Mary E 12
       Fanny B 10

I also found this, which implies the mother of 'Robt R Sale' was 'Frances H. Sale':

Caroline County, Virginia, Bureau of Vital Statistics death records, 1853-1896, By Herbert Ridgeway Collins

Frances H. Sale/W/F/Oct 8/Bra Fever/77y/Gray Samuel/Robt R Sale Son
Mary E. Sale/W/F/Apr 20/Consumption/18y 10m/Robt R Sale/Robt Sale Father
Silas B. Sale/W/M/Dec 3/Bil Colic/22y/Robt R. Sale/Robt R. Sale Father

This suggests that since Frances H. Sale died in 1857 at age 77, then she was born in 1780. She would have been 25 in 1805, when Robert R. Sale was born.

Thank you,
Dan Weeks
